System-on-chips (SoCs) are offering higher performance, feature-rich applications, and higher quality multimedia content for mobile devices. These mobile multimedia devices require high-speed data transfers, and designers need to contend with pin count and channel limitations as well as bandwidth bottlenecks.

MIPI protocols based on the MIPI M-PHY are being adopted for storage and chip-to-chip connectivity to utilize the high performance and low power characteristics of the protocol and physical layer. This webinar provides an overview of the MIPI M-PHY and explains the integration challenges faced by designers while integrating M-PHY-based protocols into SoCs.

What attendees will learn:

  • MIPI M-PHY basics and advantages
  • A low-risk approach to designing a standard interface for storage and chip-to-chip connectivity
  • Trends in the mobile electronics market and problems that MIPI protocols solve
  • How to navigate existing and future protocols required in mobile electronics

Estimated length: 50 minutes + 10 minutes of Q&A

Who should attend: SoC Design Engineers, ASIC Design Engineers, Designers of complex, high-performance systems, System architects and Engineering or Technical Managers
