Choose the Right Storage, Display Interfaces for Low-Power Mobile SoCs 1
With strict power and cost requirements of mobile SoCs and consumer demand for ultra-high-definition displays, selecting the right display and storage interfaces for mobile SoCs is more important than ever.
MIPI D-PHY v1.2 Helps Save Cost, Power in Image-Sensor and Display Apps 1
The recent release of the MIPI Alliance D-PHY v1.2 specification extends the capabilities of D-PHY high-speed burst to 2.5 Gbits/s per lane. Developers of displays and image sensors can now leverage the same design and architecture to support aggregated bandwidth of up to 10 Gbits/s using four data lanes, or 20 Gbits/s using eight data lanes.
The MIPI M-PHY Reduces Power In Mobile Chip-To-Chip Interfaces
The MIPI M-PHY v3.0 specification allows designers to implement several protocols to match their increasing high-performance and low-power requirements in mobile devices.
JEDEC UFS Streamlines Storage Interface Development 1
The JEDEC UFS standard that uses MIPI M-PHY and UniPro specifications enables low-power and high-speed operation with the features and scalability required for high-end mobile systems, enabling even faster adoption.

Proof-of-Concept Prototypes versus Manufacturing Design Preparations 4

I have designed many early-stage proof-of-concept (POC) circuits, and observed many others do the same thing. It seems that there is often a huge disconnect between clients and engineers, though, when it comes to the goals of a POC design. In simple terms, an engineer worth his salt will overdesign an early POC circuit. This is because Murphy’s law always applies, and POCs are about overcoming unknowns. By overdesigning the circuit, one is able to prove the client’s product POC can be made to work, and quickly....More
