This Month's MIPI Webinars Focus on Display Specifications

Featured Image

The growing demand for high-performance displays in next-generation automotive and other applications is driving a rapid evolution in display requirements. To help system engineers address those requirements, the leaders of the MIPI Display Working Group will deliver two webinars this month, the first outlining the specifications in the MIPI automotive display stack, and the second exploring video compression in MIPI DSI-2℠.

Enabling Automotive Displays Using MIPI Automotive SerDes Solutions (MASS)

James Goel, co-vice chair of the MIPI Display Working Group and chair of the Technical Steering Group, will present an in-depth look at the display components of the MASS framework on 19 May at 08:00-09:00 (PDT). This webinar will provide an overview of each component and explain how they combine to provide an end-to-end connectivity solution for the next generation of advanced, high-performance, automotive displays.

The second display webinar on 26 May at 08:00-09:00 (PDT) will focus on the two video compression standards, VESA VDC‑M and VESA DSC, that are adopted into the MIPI DSI-2℠ specification.

Aimed at engineers who are familiar with the DSI-2 interface, the joint presentation by MIPI Display Working Group members Alain Legault and Simon Bussières will cover:

  • The video bandwidth challenge for high-performance displays
  • Why and when to use video compression
  • Overview of the VESA DSC and VDC-M compression standards
  • Mobile, AR/VR and other mobile-influenced market considerations
  • Automotive market considerations - functional safety, cable harness weight, etc.
  • Comparison of DSC and VDC-M functionality and power, performance, and area (PPA) usage using a display driver integrated circuit (DDIC) example
  • DSC and VDC-M use case examples
