In 2021, IEEE adopted A-PHY v1.0 as IEEE 2977-2021. IEEE is the world's largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity. A-PHY was adopted because the orgainization recognized the value that a standardized SerDes interface would offer to the automotive industry. A key benefit of IEEE adopting A-PHY is that it gives non-MIPI members access to the specification, allowing potential implementers to evaluate the interface without requiring them to become a MIPI member. Now that it has been formally adopted by the MIPI Alliance, v1.1 will also be brought forward for adoption as an IEEE standard.
