Event Overview

In-vehicle cameras and displays are often connected to the image-processing ECU via a SerDes (serializer/deserializer) connection. The SerDes market is characterized by double-digit growth rates as new applications are continuously emerging. The Automotive SerDes Conference will provide a comprehensive overview of the current and upcoming market situation within the entire SerDes environment – from proprietary solutions to new standards (ASA/MIPI) to asymmetric Ethernet.

Be a part of the Automotive SerDes Conference 2020. The only event worldwide that specifically focuses on Automotive SerDes – with technical papers and experience reports.

MIPI A-PHY: Considerations in Developing a Resilient Asymmetric Data Transport for the Vehicle Lifespan
The development of a reliable SerDes interface for connecting high-bandwidth in-vehicle displays and surround sensors is essential for safe and resilient advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), autonomous driving systems (ADS), and other safety-critical applications. This presentation will explore the key considerations that were addressed by MIPI Alliance's A-PHY Subgroup when creating the recently released MIPI A-PHY specification. Topics covered will include A-PHY's use of a unique retransmission system (RTS) mechanism to ensure error-free links (less than one error for the full vehicle lifespan), and the extensive cable and EMC testing performed to ultimately achieve the goal of developing a highly resilient interface with both an ultra-low packet error rate and ultra-high immunity to EMI effects over a vehicle's lifetime.

Connecting the Blocks: An End-to-End System for ADAS and IVI Applications
Design and integration complexity has continued to increase along with the growing number of cameras, sensors and displays needed for autonomous driving, ADAS and infotainment systems. This complexity is further compounded by the stringent requirements for functional safety and security in the automotive environment. With the completion of its MIPI A-PHY “long reach” automotive physical layer specification, MIPI Alliance has created the foundation for what will be an end-to-end system designed to allow native connections to its widely used MIPI CSI-2 and DSI-2 specifications for camera and display, as well as other third-party protocols, while also incorporating functional safety and security across all layers. This presentation will provide an overview of how MIPI is addressing these system-level issues, highlight the components of the system and describe how this standardized approach will benefit the automotive ecosystem.
