MIPI Alliance Software Working Group

Focusing on Improving Software Integration of Peripheral Devices in Mobile Products

Recognizing the important role MIPI could play in easing the software challenge of integrating and managing new hardware devices in working systems, the MIPI Board of Directors has formed a Software Working Group to create and maintain software-oriented Specifications and software assets in teleconferences and face-to-face meetings.

The group has the following goals:

  • Create an extensible framework, fllexibly applicable to all MIPI protocols
  • Compatible with existing mechanisms defined by MIPI protocols
  • Minimize additional hardware complexity and software overhead (code footprint, efficienciency, responsiveness)
  • Describe consistent capabilities that permit diverse approaches to implementation using a “Service Access Point (SAP) model
  • Enable OS implementation consistency for capabilities and controls
  • Enable hardware description mechnism for each component/device

All MIPI Members at theContributor level and above are welcome to participate in the group.
