MIPI Alliance offers two specifications, MIPI DSI and MIPI DSI-2, to interface a display or multiple displays to the application processor. The options give designers flexibility to support various integration approaches depending on the type of display technology used and the desired configuration needed to meet the market’s current or future needs.  

MIPI Alliance display specifications are used in smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. The specifications are also used for automotive dashboard and in-car infotainment displays, smart meters, video game devices, wearables such as smart watches, virtual or augmented reality head-mounted devices, and in-sight (glass) devices.

A forthcoming group of specifications from MIPI Alliance will support designers’ needs to integrate various touch capabilities into devices.

MIPI DSI, MIPI DSI-2 and the forthcoming touch specifications are developed by the MIPI Display Working Group.
