Webinar Overview

Learn about the many new features and capabilities enabled by MIPI I3C® v1.1, the first update to the ground-breaking I3C bus interface designed to eliminate the historical pain points of I2C development.  With a significant speed increase and a host of new features that enhance reliability, I3C v1.1 not only strengthens the upgrade path for I2C implementers, but also enables even broader use cases in markets across mobile, IoT, industrial, automotive, data centers, PC clients, drones and more.

In this webinar, Ken presents an environmental scan of the current I3C ecosystem, followed by an in-depth look at the new features in the latest version. He also compares v1.1’s feature set with those of I3C v1.0 and I3C Basic v1.0 to help implementers choose the specification that best meets their needs. In addition, Ken shares the I3C Working Group’s plans for future development and provide a preview of related development efforts currently underway.
