The first asymmetric "long reach" standard of its kind, MIPI A-PHY serves as the foundation of an even larger system solution that will ultimately incorporate functional safety and security. With the ability to span an entire vehicle (up to 15m) at high speeds and support native connections to upcoming versions of MIPI’s camera and display interfaces (CSI-2 and DSI-2, as well as third-party protocols), this new specification will significantly simplify integration by eliminating the “bridge” solutions needed today.
In this webinar, you’ll get a preview of this end-to-end solution, as well as an overview of the system components currently in development. From there, the majority of the discussion focuses on the forthcoming A-PHY specification, including its structure and topology, reliability and noise immunity levels, and fit with other wired connectivity technologies. Also presented is a roadmap to how the specification can be leveraged in the near term as well as in the future.
