MIPI I3C carries the advantages of I²C in simplicity, low pin count, easy board design, and multi-drop (vs. point-to-point), but provides the higher data rates, simpler pads, and lower power of SPI. I3C then adds higher throughput for a given frequency, In-Band Interrupts (from Target to Controller), Dynamic Addressing, advanced power management, and Hot-Join.
