Wednesday, April 26, 2017 to Thursday, April 27, 2017

See MIPI Alliance and its members at the 2017 IoT DevCon 26-27 April 2017.

The event will focus on technologies ranging from IoT device design to gateway deployment and from software optimization strategies to security solutions as well as applying deep-learning techniques to monitor and manage the enormous loads of device-generated data. Core topics will include:

  • Designing ultra-low power IoT nodes
  • Exploring connectivity protocols and industry standards
  • Building hubs to harness the data explosion
  • Utilizing software development environments for M2M applications
  • Understanding and managing security-related issues, taking the IoT into the cloud
  • Making money with the Internet of Things
  • How IoT technology will affect business and product development
  • The future of what IoT will bring

Where: Santa Clara Convention Center

Session title & speaker: A Developer’s Guide to MIPI I3C Implementation, Kenneth Foust, Sensor Technologist and Researcher, Intel Corporation & MIPI Sensor Working Group Chair

Abstract overview:
Preparing to implement MIPI’s new sensor interface, MIPI I3C, in your next design? This presentation will provide adopters of MIPI I3C with targeted guidance on how to ensure a successful and efficient implementation of I3C in their IoT products. Leveraging I2C as a foundation, many components of I3C will be familiar to implementers, but with guidance provided here, attendees will leave with a clearer understanding of I3C’s new innovative features, how they will improve their systems and what considerations should be made to fully leverage them. Implementation guidance will include, but not be limited to support for legacy I2C devices, understanding network topology tradeoffs and good design practices.

Speaker bio:
Ken Foust, Intel Corporation is a Sensor Technologist and Researcher who leads sensing initiatives across Intel’s product portfolio and R&D labs. He is also the Chair of the MIPI Sensor Working Group.  Previously, Ken was a Director at Kionix, Inc. started his career at IBM and received a BSEE from Alfred University.  

When: 27 April 2017, 9:30am-9:55am

MIPI table top and demo showcase: See Synopsys and Mixel showcase demos at the MIPI Alliance table top 26 April 11:45am-6:30pm & 27 April 10:00am-2:30pm. 

Mixel will showcase the use of its MIPI products in IoT applications. The first demo from GEO Semiconductor, uses the GEO’s GC6500 product, integrating a complete CSI-2 D-PHY solution from Mixel, demonstrating a high-quality camera video, targeted for both IoT and automotive applications. The second demo is the Withings Home product, a home security camera, an end-customer product which uses the same GEO product with the same Mixel IP. The Withings home security camera is available online and in stores worldwide.

Synopsys will demo features Synopsys’ complete, proven MIPI camera interface IP solution consisting of DesignWare MIPI CSI-2 Controller, DesignWare MIPI I3C Controller, DesignWare MIPI D-PHY, all of which are immediately available for mobile, automotive and IoT SoC designs. The demo uses the DesignWare MIPI CSI-2 IP Prototyping Kit to accelerate software development and IP integration. 

Register for the conference Complimentary for qualified guests (general fee applies after December 31, 2016).
