MIPI Alliance, that is, the Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) Alliance. MIPI (Mobile Industry Processor Interface) is an open standard and a specification for mobile application processors initiated by the MIPI Alliance.
The MIPI Alliance encourages all companies in the mobile phone industry to join, including: mobile phone device manufacturers, semiconductor manufacturers, software manufacturers, system suppliers, peripheral device manufacturers, intellectual property providers, and other companies.
By absorbing other important players in the mobile industry, the MIPI Alliance will enable the broader mobile market to enjoy the benefits of open standards. The MIPI standard will improve the consistency of the application processor interface, accelerate the provision of mobile devices to users, and promote the reuse and compatibility of mobile devices.
Gadi Singer, vice president of Intel and general manager of Cellular Handheld Group, said: "The development of the mobile phone industry will largely depend on its ability to widely adopt advanced and interoperable standard products-this is the future development trend With the addition of new members, the MIPI Alliance is increasingly becoming a major enabler of open industry standards. Intel is looking forward to helping lead the development of open standard platform interfaces for the mobile phone industry in a proactive manner."
All members of MIPI may participate in the press conference held in Sophia Antipolis, France from March 23 to 25. The conference included the introduction phase, the first meeting of the board of directors and the working group. More information about this meeting will be announced soon. Members of the MIPI working group will immediately begin cooperation to develop new interface specifications suitable for application processors, as well as mobile terminal peripherals such as cameras, displays, and baseband modems.
The Alliance is actively recruiting new members to participate in the construction of next-generation standards. The MIPI Alliance can absorb members at different levels, and the benefits of members are proportional to their contribution. Members at the basic level can use the specifications, while members at other levels can join the working group to determine the specifications.
The Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) Alliance was initiated by ARM, Nokia, STMicroelectronics and Texas Instruments. As a cooperative organization of leaders in the mobile industry, the MIPI Alliance aims to identify and promote open standards for mobile application processor interfaces. With the help of these open standards, the MIPI Alliance can establish specifications for the standard hardware and software interfaces of mobile application processors and encourage the adoption of open standards throughout the industry value chain, thereby accelerating the process of promoting new services to mobile users. MIPI Alliance plans to focus on microprocessors, peripherals, and software interfaces to improve existing standards.
Alan Brown, principal analyst at Gartner, said: "Open interface specifications developed for application processors and mobile terminal peripherals will be increasingly widely adopted, which will have a beneficial impact on the mobile industry. There is no doubt that MIPI The new members recruited by the alliance have increased the importance of the alliance and strengthened the alliance's influence in setting standards in its field."
The alliance members cover almost every mobile field, including major mobile phone OEMs, peripheral device manufacturers, application processor manufacturers, memory suppliers, software developers and intellectual property holders. New members include Agilent Technologies, ATI Technologies, Atsana, Austrian Microelectronics, Cambridge Silicon Radio, Dice, Emblaze Semiconductor, Ericsson Mobile Platform, FASL LLC, Icera Semiconductor, Imagination Technologies, IMEC, Infineon Technologies, Marvell International, Mentor, M- Systems, National Semiconductor, NeoMagic, Nvidia, Omnivision, Philips Electronics, Renesas Technologies, Samsung Electronics, Seiko Epson, Sendo, Siemens, Sony Ericsson, Symbian, Synaptics, Toshiba, Transchip Israel Research, TTPCom and Zhongxing Microelectronics. In addition to these new members, the MIPI Alliance also includes four sponsoring companies, ARM, Nokia, STMicroelectronics and Texas Instruments.
