When MIPI Alliance was formed in 2003, MIPI was an acronym for “Mobile Industry Processor Interface.”  Because the organization’s specifications today address not only processor connectivity but the full range of interface needs in a device, MIPI Alliance no longer uses the original phrase and MIPI is no longer used as an acronym.

“MIPI Alliance” is the proper use of the brand when referring to the organization. “MIPI Member” is used to refer to a company that joins the organization. “MIPI Specification” is used to refer to a specification that has been adopted by MIPI Alliance.
