The MIPI Alliance has developed dozens of specifications, standardizing all interfaces of mobile devices that are now part of almost any smartphone. If you are reading this blog through a mobile device (as you probably are...), the text and graphics you see on your screen went through the MIPI DSI interface, and the picture or video you took earlier with the phone’s camera was captured through the MIPI CSI interface and saved on your memory flash card through MIPI UniPro interface, and so on…
The proliferation of sensors in mobile devices (accelerometer, gyroscope, light, pressure, and temperature sensors is a very partial list) led the MIPI alliance to develop a new standard for sensors interfaces: I3C.
I3C provides a fast, low-cost, low-power, two-wire digital interface for sensors and is backward compatible with I2C, which makes it a great candidate to gain fast adoption in the next-generation mobile devices.
Cadence, as an active member of the MIPI Alliance and the sensor working group, engaged very early with the main industry leaders and developed powerful verification IP for I3C that helps you quickly design a high-quality SoC with I3C interfaces.
The I3C VIP is available today and will be demonstrated at the coming MIPI "Demo Day" in Taipei in October.
