MIPI Alliance Enables First Wave of 5G Smartphones

PISCATAWAY, N.J., and Seoul, South Korea, October 19, 2018 – The MIPI Alliance, an international organization that develops interface specifications for mobile and mobile-influenced industries, today announced at MIPI DevCon Seoul that all of its specifications relevant for applications in mobile platforms are 5G ready. A new white paper— “Making the 5G Vision a Reality: A 5G Readiness Assessment of MIPI Specifications”—details how key specifications, such as those for cameras, displays and audio, enable the initial 5G smartphone market and address some of the growing 5G use cases beyond mobile.

Earlier this year, several major manufacturers began using MIPI specifications for their initial 5G devices, for instance, to connect 5G smartphone front ends to modems, and application processors to cameras and displays. MIPI specifications are already capable of enabling 5G devices due to several factors:

“Smartphone manufacturers, IoT developers and automakers already rely on MIPI’s highly regarded interfaces for their devices, and that broad, deep adoption greatly helps to enable the transition to 5G for the entire ecosystem,” said Joel Huloux, chairman of MIPI Alliance. “MIPI’s specifications are already ahead of the curve, which puts our member companies in an ideal position to capitalize on the enormous opportunities 5G offers.”

In addition to supporting the first wave of 5G smartphones, MIPI working groups are developing new specification versions to ensure that the interfaces continue to anticipate and meet future marketplace requirements. One example is the MIPI RFFE Working Group, which is developing new RF front-end capabilities such as higher data rates, more transmitter/receiver paths and more flexible programmability. Organizations are invited to join MIPI and help influence specification requirements to support future 5G use cases.
