MIPI Alliance releases I3C basic interface specification

The MIPI Alliance, an international organization that develops interface specifications for mobile and mobile-influenced industries, has released MIPI I3C Basic v1.0, a subset of the MIPI I3C specification that bundles the most commonly needed I3C features for developers and other standards organizations, the company said.

Released in January 2017, MIPI I3C v1.0 streamlines and advances interface technologies for connecting processors, sensors and many other devices that had previously used I2C (Inter-Integrated Circuit), the de facto standard for over 35 years. MIPI I3C Basic v1.0 provides 20 key features from MIPI I3C.

MIPI Alliance develops interface specifications for mobile and mobile-influenced industries. There is at least one MIPI specification in every smartphone manufactured today. Founded in 2003, the organization is celebrating its 15th year of moving mobile forward with over 300 member companies worldwide and 14 active working groups delivering specifications within the mobile ecosystem.
