We typically refer to mobile solutions in the context of consumers as these mobile devices are used in our daily life for fun, accessing information, watching movies and similar tasks. We also use these Mobile electronics for work related tasks: phone calls, texting, email, business apps and for accessing / sending information.
It’s probably one of the most important milestones for the MIPI alliance in my humble opinion. Having made inroads into mobile markets with several specifications, camera CSI-2, display DSI, DigRF and D-PHY to name a few, now it’s the turn of the M-PHY. The most scalable, low power physical layer that can serve multiple end-applications (or protocols). Six end-applications to be precise, yes SIX.
The ITU-R specification for IMT-Advanced, the next step in mobile broadband wireless technology was announced this week. ITU finalized their technical evaluation that included operational aspects and determined that LTE-Advanced and WirelessMAN-Advanced that are the compliant versions of LTE and WiMAX. These protocols are regarded as ‘true’ 4G and according to ITU standards the so-called 4G phones we see in the market today that provide higher speeds are not part of the next generation mobile technology covered under IMT-Advanced.

With the growth in interfaces required on processors today I wanted to get some more color from an industry veteran such as Eric Esteve of IP Nest who’s dedicating his time for market analysis mainly focused on interface IP. Eric’s latest viewpoints and reports are available at IPnest as well as on Semiwiki where you can find lots of good information about Interface IP.The interview with Eric Esteve will feature in a several-part-post over the next weeks.
