MIPI Alliance firmly believes that openness and standardization will fuel market growth for mobile devices, as well as address numerous roadblocks currently facing designers, developers, purchasers and manufacturers.

Interface specifications generated within the Working Groups will:

  • Improve interconnectivity and compatibility
  • Reduce fragmentation in mobile industry for interfaces 
  • Increase system quality and reliability
  • Increase resource efficiency
  • More resources applied to differentiated R&D 
  • Maximize design reuse
  • Drive innovation
  • Liberated resources can focus energy on value-added innovation
  • Reduce time-to-market
  • Component suppliers will debate fewer interfaces for integration
  • System OEMs will face less complex system integration

From Proposal to Specification

Each working group progresses along a standard path - from investigation group to specification. Led by a technical chair, group members define the requirements for the specification, solicit input and proposals, discuss, and create a draft specification. From there, the specification is vetted and reviewed by the Board of Directors. After a final vote, the draft becomes a specification which is made available to all member companies. However, only MIPI members have access to the complete specification.
