The Test Working Group encourages all other MIPI Alliance working groups to develop Conformance Test Suite (CTS) documents for their specifications to help the industry consolidate around a common set of test methods. The Test Working Group assists other working groups in the development of CTS documents.

The Test Working Group also raises awareness of the importance of two principles of specification development: 1) promoting development of features that support “design for testability” to make it easier to develop and test an implementation; and 2) promoting “design for manufacturability” so products built with MIPI Alliance specifications can be more easily manufactured and potential problems can be identified prior to production and fixed during development.
