MIPI DevCon 2022 is right around the corner, and this year’s lineup of sessions and expert speakers promises to deliver new technical insights and valuable guidance to developers, engineers and system architects implementing MIPI specifications in mobile, automotive, IoT, AR/VR and 5G.
Registration is free for the virtual event on 20-21 September, but you’ll need to reserve your spot to gain access to the event platform to view the live presentations.
MIPI Initiatives & Specification Updates
The opening day of the event will kick off with updates on MIPI priority areas of focus, beginning with a “State of the Alliance” presentation by Peter Lefkin, MIPI’s executive director, immediately followed by “MIPI Automotive SerDes Solutions: New Developments in A-PHY® and the MASS Connectivity Framework,” presented by Edo Cohen, Raj Kumar Nagpal and Ariel Lasry, the co-chairs and vice chair of the MIPI A-PHY Working Group.
Later that day, Security Working Group co-chairs Philip Hawkes and Rick Wietfeldt will share a first look at the “MIPI CSI-2® Security Framework” for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving systems (ADS).
An additional key update will launch the event on day two, with the four chairs of the PHY working groups — Cohen (A-PHY), George Wiley (C-PHY), Nagpal (D-PHY) and Kirill Dimitrov (M-PHY) — taking a deep dive into recent enhancements and future development for each PHY specification in “What's New & Coming Up on the MIPI PHY Roadmap.”
Automotive Sensor Testing and Solutions
In addition to the MASS and security presentations, other automotive presentations on 20 September include Gregor Sievers of dSPACE GmbH covering “How to Engage in Data-Driven Development and Testing Using MIPI Automotive Sensor Interfaces;” and Joe Rodriguez of Rambus, Inc., and Justin Endo of Mixel, Inc., discussing “MIPI Sensor Solutions for Autonomous Driving.”
Case Studies and Application Examples
“MIPI Sensor-System Interop and Debug for Vision Applications on a SOM,” to be presented by Kondalarao Polisetti and Wesley Skeffington of AMD-Xilinx, will round out the first day; while the next day will feature "Enabling Simpler Design with MIPI I3C® in Different End-Equipment Applications,” an overview from Texas Instruments’ Saminah Chaudhry and Amit Ashara, covering different end-equipment applications using key MIPI I3C features.
Licinio Sousa of Synopsys, Inc. will focus on two case studies in his session, “RealExamples of MIPI IF in AR/VR, Mobile and Other Image Applications;” and Yundong Cui of HME and Mahmoud Banna of Mixel Egypt will share their experiences in “Leveraging MIPI DSI-2 and CSI-2 Low-Power Display and Camera Subsystems.” Completing the program will be Skyworks Solutions' Florinel Balteanu, who will discuss “MIPI RFFE for 5G Front End Modules.”
Each session will include time for a live Q&A, and sessions will be available on demand following the event. You can learn more about MIPI specifications by accessing on-demand sessions from previous events on the Past MIPI DevCon Resources and Conference Presentations pages of the website.
