Andrew Scott-Mackie, RF Control Systems Engineer, Intel Corporation
As mobile systems gear up to adopt 5G wireless specification, the RF Front-End (RF-FE) control requirements pose several challenges. The complex RF-FE architecture of 5G radios not only demands dynamic configuration changes, but also requires that the configuration changes be achieved within a much shorter time window. While MIPI RFFE℠ has served the RF-FE control requirements very well over the past decade, MIPI RFFE 3.0 aims to meet the new 5G control timing requirements and adds several enhancements to the RFFE-Trigger specification. This presentation highlights these enhancements to triggers, aimed at meeting 5G use cases.
Andrew Scott-Mackie, system engineer at Intel, has been active in wireless communications since 1998, working at companies such as Rohde & Schwarz, Alcatel-Lucent and Nokia. He currently works as a systems engineer in the Wireless RF division of Intel, with focus on control and interface aspects of RF transceivers, as well as the control of the RF front-end. Andrew is active in the MIPI RFFE working group, driving forward new features to address future control challenges, such as those due to 5G/NR. He holds a BEng degree from the University of Greenwich, England, in electrical engineering, and a master of science from the Technical University Munich in RF engineering.

Saurin Shah, Senior Software Engineer, Microsoft Corporation
Rob Gough, Platform Software Architect, Intel Corporation
MIPI DisCo specifications define device-specific (SoundWire Master, I3C HCI, etc.) properties that are written in ACPI source language (ASL). These property keys are prescribed strings with many different value data types, often hierarchical with many layers of sub-properties. Currently these properties are written by hand using text editor. Hand-coding complex hierarchies is easy to get wrong, and current compilers do not check _DSD syntax or data types. The DisCo creation tool simplifies this development process by using device templates created from MIPI DisCo specifications to generate ASL files. It reduces the effort required to develop platform firmware images and time to debug firmware/software.
Saurin Shah has more than 14 years of experience in software development primarily focusing around the audio domain. At Microsoft, he works on developing audio class drivers for various technologies such as SoundWire, USB audio and HD audio.
The current chair of the MIPI Software Working Group, Rob Gough is a platform software architect with Intel Corporation, focusing on industry standards for operating system and firmware interfaces relating to I/O technologies and power management. He has been granted over 40 patents related in these areas and has worked with industry specification bodies including the UEFI Forum and the PCI SIG for the last 19 years. He has made many contributions to the ACPI Specification, the PCI Express Base Specification and PCI Firmware Specification and also serves as the co-chair of the PCI SIG Firmware Workgroup.
HeeSoo Lee, SerDes/DDR Product Owner, Keysight Technologies Inc.
Jingshen Liu, R&D Engineer, Keysight Technologies Inc.
The overall timing budget for RJ (Random Jitter) and DJ (Deterministic Jittter) in MIPI C-PHY℠ is roughly defined as TX impairment, 0.15UI. The biggest contribution to the TX impairment is believed to be RJ. However, due to the unique properties of the MIPI C-PHY signal, many jitter influences are not fully studied. This presentation focuses on the influence of random jitters to the MIPI C-PHY high speed timing. This investigation provides a reference for MIPI C-PHY designers, and it could help the PHY working group further develop the MIPI C-PHY specification regarding the signal impairment introduced by random jitter.
HeeSoo Lee is the SerDes/DDR product owner in the EEsof EDA group of Keysight Technologies DES division, located in Santa Rosa, Calif. Since 1989, he has held several different positions in Keysight Technologies, Agilent Technologies and Hewlett-Packard, including consulting business manager, technical marketing lead and field applications engineer.
