Q: You’ve been chairman of MIPI for 11 years now. What are some of the most memorable milestones for the organization?
I’ve been involved in MIPI since its inception in early 2003 and have enjoyed every meeting and discussion I’ve had. I have so many memorable moments with many different people, thanks to the melting pot that is MIPI Alliance. My role is both enjoyable and challenging, as we strive to build the Alliance, keep members productive and engaged, and contribute to and add value to ALL the industries we serve by delivering the best interface specifications.
One of the first memorable moments was in 2006 when we realized that the application processor might not be the “center of the world” for defining our interfaces and we introduced the definition of the mobile terminal. It was rewarding to see that we were able to reconsider our scope of work and make progress! Another memorable milestone was when MIPI Alliance reached 300 members—MIPI was gaining traction thanks to the quality and maturity of our specifications being used in mobile and outside our traditional ecosystem. 2019 has already ushered in another major milestone that will help our members to capitalize on their contributions by enabling the use of our specifications under the same rules in all industry segments.
