The mission of MIPI Alliance is to develop the world’s most comprehensive set of interface specifications for mobile and mobile-influenced products. MIPI Alliance has always been at the forefront of defining state-of-the-art low power interconnects to support the key subsystems in advanced mobile platforms. With the 5G wave coming like a tsunami, it will start with mobile and expand into all areas of our life. 5G needs a set of high-performance and scalable system interconnects to meet the 5G era for the next decade and beyond. MIPI is up to the challenge and prepared for the coming 5G demands. To ensure MIPI meets or exceeds the requirements of next generation 5G mobile or beyond-mobile use cases, all working groups are evaluating their roadmaps to evaluate implications of future 5G technologies and emerging 5G use cases.

This presentation focuses on how current and future MIPI specifications will be used to achieve our goal of “MIPI – Making the 5G Vision a Reality”.
