Download MIPI DisCo℠ Specification


An ACPI-based software architecture for discovering and enumerating devices that support MIPI Alliance protocol specifications on a system


The MIPI Discovery and Configuration (MIPI DisCo℠) specification simplifies component design and integration by defining a uniform software architecture that can be used with a device’s host operating system to enumerate controllers, busses and components that support MIPI Alliance protocols.

MIPI DisCo is based on the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI), which is widely used in the PC industry to enumerate devices and functions, describe their capabilities, and manage their power states. It is supported by prominent operating systems, including Linux, Microsoft’s Windows, Apple operating systems and others.

The base specification is used in conjunction with MIPI DisCo Class Specifications (or profiles), which define the capabilities of specific devices.

MIPI Alliance also welcomes contributions to the specification. If you would like to contribute, please contact us at for more information.

The version currently available for download here is v1.0 (adopted December 2016).
