Successful standards efforts, exemplified by those undertaken by the MIPI Alliance around mobile devices, are win-win scenarios. They serve to help member OEMs shorten time-to-market and create economies of scale, and at the same time, they help consumers by way of overall lower retail prices and by smoothing a path toward broad market acceptance of mobile technologies that benefit everyone.
In this eBook, brought to you by Microwaves & RF and Electronic Design, you’ll find articles on two of the many standards initiatives of the MIPI Alliance:
- The RF Front-End Control Interface (RFFE), which simplifies design, configuration, and integration of RF front ends in 5G, automotive, industrial, and IoT use cases.
- The A-PHY serializer-deserializer (SerDes) physical layer interface, aimed at providing automotive OEMs and their suppliers with end-to-end connectivity for cameras, sensors, and displays that comprise advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems, and, ultimately, fully autonomous vehicles.
