I would like to add that you also can find information about MIPI as an IP product, in a market survey just completed by IPnest on our website: www.ip-nest.com. This includes a forecast of the MIPI IP business for 2010-2015, the license prices for PHY and Controller IP, the main IP vendors etc... FYI, one of the first customer was Intel. Or you can attend to IP-SoC in Grenoble (France) on Nov30-Dec1, see: http://www.design-reuse.com/ipsoc2010/program/

Excellent post Mr. Boyce. As a MIPI Alliance board member, I wanted to let you know that we are seeing tremendous momentum, both in our membership and interest in our organization - even outside the mobile space. We just reached 200 member companies, including most major semiconductor companies and major mobile OEMs, along with a large ecosystem from IP to test equipment vendors. I wanted to invite others that are interested to checkout our new website at www.mipi.org and the many new resources we have added to learn more (YouTube, LinkedIn, Twitter...). Look for more of these types of articles and news as we continue to grow and improve our industry relations.

I agree that this type of article is useful. I did the same thing for the MIPI SLIMbus specification, publishing it in Portable Design magazine (now out of business). But that article can be found on National Semiconductor's website, and other locations via a web search. Even though MIPI specs are available only to MIPI members, it is necessary for the engineering community to generally know what these specs could possible do for their designs, and that knowledge could speed up the adoption of the standards as well as possibly broaden application of it. It may also induce companies to join the MIPI Alliance.

In late August, the MIPI Alliance announced its new spec for RF front-end control. (http://www.eetimes.com/discussion/other/4206515/Simplifying-control-in-the-RF-front-end) I asked them to elaborate in an article because there seemed to be some questions out there. Happily, Victor Wilkerson and Gernot Hueber agreed, and this article is now posted for you.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
