I am often asked when meeting with customers about latest trends and what would be the right interface for the customer next design.
The answer of course depends on which market you go after, your cost targets and more, however being aware of the latest trends help in the decision.
The article describing trends in display and storage interfaces covers the latest developments in Display and Storage interfaces.
In display, we are seeing trend in adding VESA DSC Encoder connecting to DSI protocol and D-PHY, to the SoC side to help reduce transmission rates, cost and power.
In storage, we are seeing higher adoption for JEDEC UFS 2.0 standard both in SoC and Storage ICs.
I’m planning to be in MIPI Face-to-face meeting in October in Taipei, present a paper, show several hardware demos as part of Synopsys presence in the event and driving specifications / definition. I hope to see you there and discuss the needs in your next design.

Views and Trends in mobile electronics connectivity related to MIPI IP
I started my career as an R&D engineer for embedded systems, then transitioned into applications engineering and product marketing roles in the semiconductor industry. With my systems knowledge, I have led many IC design wins that have enabled portable applications such as cellular phones, digital cameras and eBooks.
What intrigues me about the mobile electronics market is how rapid technological innovations, economic forces and changing consumer preferences drive market direction. Let’s explore these developments together.
