Overview:
System-on-chip (SoC) designers can be overwhelmed by the number and complexity of connectivity protocols that need to be managed on a single chip. MIPI protocols are increasingly being adopted in the market, primarily interfacing an SoC to camera, display and RFICs, while newer MIPI protocols are being promoted for storage, chip-to-chip connectivity and next-generation camera and displays. This webinar explains the building blocks and integration challenges faced by designers while integrating MIPI protocols into SoCs. The webinar will show an example design that demonstrates how to develop more power-efficient and higher performing mobile multimedia devices, while meeting critical time-to-market windows that are imperative in this dynamic market.

What attendees will learn:

  • Understand popular MIPI protocols, what they are and how they work
  • How to design a standard interface to camera, display and RFICs
  • Trends in the mobile electronics market and what MIPI protocols solve
  • Help navigate existing and future protocols required in mobile electronics
