Many board and contributor member companies collaborate in the development of MIPI Alliance specifications. Companies participating in this work include most of the leading semiconductor suppliers, software vendors, IP providers, peripheral manufacturers, test labs and end-product OEMs.
MIPI Alliance uses a tiered membership structure, similar to other industry organizations, to enable participation from large and small companies representing the mobile and mobile-influenced industries. The members include adopters, contributors, promoters and the board of directors.
MIPI Alliance is governed by a board of directors that consists of a single director from each of the following seven companies: Intel, Samsung, STMicroelectronics, Synopsys, Texas Instruments, and Toshiba. The Bylaws allow for additional board members to be elected by the board. The board manages the general affairs of the organization, acting in the best interest of its members to guide development of specifications that advance interface technology for mobile and mobile-influenced devices.
MIPI Alliance operates as a non-profit corporation. It relies on membership fees to support all of its operations, events, marketing, staff and other business needs.
No, MIPI Alliance is an independent, not-for-profit corporate entity. MIPI Alliance contracts with IEEE-ISTO to provide administrative support services.
Like many contemporary organizations, MIPI Alliance is a global, “virtual” entity. As such, it has no physical location. It does not plan to define a physical location unless future activities require it. For legal and tax reasons MIPI Alliance is incorporated in the U.S. state of Delaware. Administrative support is provided by the IEEE Industry Standards and Technology Organization (IEEE-ISTO), which is located in Piscataway, N.J., in the U.S.
