Because of their key characteristics and proven performance, MIPI specifications have been deployed in countless devices across a broad range of markets, in everything from mobile handsets, to IoT and AR/VR, to automotive. In automotive, these specifications include MIPI CSI-2® for cameras, DSI-2℠ for displays and I3C® for sensors, as well as others.
This webinar provides an in-depth look at MIPI A-PHY®, a high-speed, “long-reach“ (up to 15m) physical layer specification that allows native connections to the widely implemented CSI-2 and DSI-2 protocols. The goal is to provide the automotive industry with a standardized approach that offers both high performance and simplified integration, along with the flexibility needed to suit a broad range of speed and design needs.
After an overview of the factors driving A-PHY development, the presentation covers its structure, topologies and key features, as well as its fit with other wired connectivity technologies. Also included is a discussion of how the specification can be leveraged in the near term as well as in the future.
