MIPI specifications are mature, relatively simple to use and well proven in the mobile segment, which makes MIPI CSI-2® image sensors a best bet in beyond-mobile segments like automotive, AI and vision applications.

This presentation details the concept of System on Module (SOM) with MIPI-based camera sensors. It begins with a few vision-based applications, including the implementation methods to ease the path from concept to production, and then covers the interop challenges while bringing up the camera sensor and the video pipe, and the debug techniques used. It concludes with a look at “Accelerated application” to differentiate designs at the software level and shorten the runway to volume development, and examines how the SOM hardware architecture and connector interface has been optimized for signal integrity and a maximum number of MIPI interfaces.
