Presentation by MIPI Alliance:

MIPI Specifications: Driving New Solutions for the Automotive Industry, 12:00 p.m. - 12:30 p.m.


Peter Lefkin (Managing Director, MIPI Alliance)


Because of their key characteristics and proven performance, MIPI specifications have been deployed in billions of devices across an ever-broadening range of markets, in everything from mobile handsets, to IoT and AR/VR, to automotive. Learn how MIPI specifications for cameras (CSI-2), displays (DSI-2), sensors (I3C), storage (UniPro and M-PHY through UFS), and other functions are already being implemented in automotive. The presentation will then take a detailed look at the upcoming MIPI A-PHY specification, which will bring an eagerly-awaited solution for the "long-reach high-speed challenge‎" of connecting the highest speed electronic components throughout a vehicle. Get an early look at this innovative physical layer specification that works with existing MIPI specifications and others to support ADAS, autonomous driving and other surround sensor applications.
