MIPI Alliance and IEEE Sign Agreement to Bring Automotive SerDes Standard to Broader Ecosystem


The MIPI Alliance, an international organization that develops interface specifications for mobile and mobile-influenced industries, today announced it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity, to facilitate adoption of the MIPI A-PHY specification as an IEEE standard. MIPI A-PHY v1.0 is the first industry-standard, long-reach serializer-deserializer (SerDes) physical layer interface for automotive applications such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), autonomous driving systems (ADS) and other surround-sensor applications, including cameras and in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) displays.

One-off Ferrari Omolagata will bring back the car-loving boy in you

Remember your younger years when you had your bedroom filled with posters of your favorite things? Chances are, if you’re a serious car lover back then, your walls were plastered with images of fancy sports cars.
