Featured Image

Interested in learning more about the updates in the recently released MIPI A-PHY℠ v1.1? Would you like to weigh in on future development of the SerDes interface? You'll have the opportunity for both at next week's MIPI A-PHY Automotive Industry Forum.

Register to join us on 26 January, 08:00-09:30 (PST), for a technical overview of A-PHY v1.1, followed by the opportunity to provide input on industry requirements and enhancements to help shape the next version of the specification.

New in v1.1 and Next Version Inputs

The virtual forum will begin by covering A-PHY v1.1 enhancements, which include doubling of the downlink bandwidth to 32 Gbps, a faster uplink gear with an available data rate of up to 200 Mbps, and the addition of optional PAM4 encoding for downlink gears G1 and G2 to allow manufacturers to more easily migrate to A-PHY while using either legacy cables on current platforms or lower-cost cables on new platforms.

The A-PHY Working Group speakers will then present a series of potential features and enhancements based on forecasted automotive industry requirements, and poll the audience to gauge industry support. Attendees will also have the opportunity to submit additional enhancements and considerations.
