There are four key elements to mobile imaging:
- Media Processing
- Display Technology
- Interface protocols between processor ICs and image controller IC’s
Today’s Application Processors for Smartphone and Tablet have substantial graphics processing capability. Most are fabricated in 28m high K metal gate CMOS nodes and the next generation of sub 20nm FINFETs will provide even more processing capability.
Display Technology for LED and AOMLED ranges from 200 PPI for large form factors to 440PPI for small form factors.
MIPI Interface standards dominate mobile electronics. Content is application and market segment driven. We’ll explore those in more detail below.
