The various MIPI hardware specifications lack support for a uniform software interface by which devices and functions can be discovered and enumerated by the operating system or similar software. The lack of an architected, self-describing hardware mechanism has undesirable consequences for producers and
consumers of mobile appliances. For the producer, it can drive up product cost and complexity, while for the consumer it can impede the availability of innovative products. MIPI Software Working Group Chair Rob Gough describes the forthcoming a standardized device discovery and configuration mechanism (MIPI DisCo) for MIPI specification-based interfaces that can simplify component design and integration in mobile appliances.
