The increasing popularity of smartphones and other multimedia enabled mobile devices along with the demand for enhanced multimedia features are pushing device manufacturers to integrate more advanced peripherals such as multi megapixel cameras and larger screens into their designs. Integrating these capabilities into mobile devices brings new challenges to the industry in terms of power, performance, time to market and overall system costs.
To address these challenges, the Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI®) Alliance defines and promotes open interface specifications such as the Camera Serial Interface (CSI-2) Display Serial Interface (DSI) and UniPro which all use the MIPI D-PHY.
