Overview:
When designing mobile devices, it is critical to implement
technologies that will future-proof your design, minimize BOM costs and board
space, and maintain or improve performance. The MIPI Alliance Low Latency
Interface (LLI) and M-PHY are two technologies that can help future-proof your
design while giving it competitive advantages in terms of cost, board space,
performance, and time-to-market.

The webinar will present a case study
describing how LLI can be used to minimize DRAM footprint on a mobile phone
system board. Particular attention will be paid to real-world implementation
issues, such as clock domain, power and voltage management as well as
integration with SoC interconnect fabrics.

This webinar will
teach you:

  • What the LLI and M-PHY technologies are, and best practices for
    implementation
  • How LLI is different than other chip-to-chip interface standards, such as
    USB and PCIe
  • How the LLI point-to-point interconnect can benefit multi-chip systems
  • How the LLI controller and M-PHY IP can reduce the silicon footprint on your
    board
  • How LLI can reduce individual BOM and multi-product platform costs

Estimated length: 50 minutes, 10 minutes Q&A

Who should
attend:
This webinar is targeted at system architects, mobile device and
consumer electronics product managers and designers, design engineers, SoC
architects, and project managers.
