Abstract: The MIPI I3C bus is an intelligent serial interface, with flexible bus management architecture. It aims at enhancing the benefits of speed and energy efficiency of the data transfer by adding several features that streamline various type of transactions. In addition, those features are designed to facilitate the System Design, providing scalable and efficient interconnectivity solutions. The System Designers challenges and their wish-lists were taken in consideration, materializing into the comprehensive list of I3C features. The Flow Control and the Timing Control tools provided by MIPI I3C interface are the subject of this presentation. Elements of solved problems, their challenges and practical aspects are included.
