  15. 15. 15 •  Many MIPI Interfaces are used today in Automo?ve – including Mul?media, Storage, Sensor, and Wireless connec?vity (WWAN, WLAN, GNSS, BT, NFC) •  MIPI Interfaces may be fed to a Bridge device for transport on longer distances
  16. 16. MIPI Roadmap to Tomorrow •  Continued focus on mobile terminal interfaces to 5G •  I: Wireless Technology; II. Multimedia •  Increased focus on leveraging MIPI Interfaces for use in mobile-influenced Markets •  IOT, Automotive, Industrial •  Examples: •  Extended Lengths for longer reach applications •  PHY, RFFE, I3C •  Lower RFFE latency for (Pre)5G wireless •  Lower speed Modem interface (VGI) •  I3C for touch and control applications 16
  17. 17. Conclusion •  Footprint… MIPI is now in every smartphone, and soon in every phone (i.e. including featurephone ! smartphone) •  Expanding… Rapidly expanding into mobile-influenced markets as mobile SOC manufacturers and OEMs leverage (reuse) their interface IP assets •  New “terminals”: Wearables, VR, Drones, Connected Vehicles •  Optimizing… With assistance from new industry members and developers, evolving specs to address specific requirements of the mobile-influenced markets 17
