BARCELONA, SPAIN - Mobile World Congress - February 25, 2014

The MIPI® Alliance, an international organization that develops interface specifications for mobile and mobile-influenced industries, is driving the adoption of leading-edge technologies including 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) in external devices, 2K and 4K mobile displays, and high performance cameras with enhanced interface specifications.

As end-user requirements continue to evolve, the Alliance is leading the advancement of current and future market needs with upgraded camera, display and physical layer specifications, which allows OEMs to provide consumers with an enriching visual experience.

“The industry is very optimistic about 2K and 4K displays and their market potential. MIPI Alliance members are helping to accelerate the adoption of the technology by providing a consistent interface protocol for manufacturers and designers to follow,” said Joel Huloux, chairman of the board, MIPI Alliance. “Consumers want stunning screen clarity and detail in their TVs and mobile devices. They also want their cameras to have the ability to take better pictures, faster. Our protocols and specifications are enabling these technological advances by strategically solving problems as devices become more complex.”


New versions of the MIPI specifications include:


D-PHY with expanded lanes and higher bandwidths which can provide over 20Gbps of performance, while still keeping costs low.

 M-PHY® will continue to push performance with gear 3 (5.8Gbps/lane) which is available today and gear 4 (11.6Gbps/lane) which will be available later this year.

MIPI PHYs, in conjunction with the latest versions of Camera Serial Interface (CSI) and Display Serial Interface (DSI) specifications, and aided by VESA compression technology, are able to support the industry’s newest technologies with higher speeds, better performance and more features.

These new additions also bring added performance to MIPI Alliance partners, accelerating SSIC from USB-IF, M-PCIe from PCI-SIG® and UFS V2.0 for UHD from JEDEC® (in conjunction with the MIPI UniPort-MSM).
