In-Stat Predicts More Than 225 Million Tablet PC Image Sensor will be Shipped by 2016

The growing demand for higher image resolutions has led to the usage of serial interfaces in image sensors, making them more effective when compared to parallel interfaces.

In a recent survey, In-Stat has found that in consumer and computing electronic products with an image sensor, there is a distinctive MIPI CSI-2 interest. In-Stat estimates that by 2016, the penetration of MIPI CSI-2 will exceed 70% in these devices. The MIPI Alliance develops interface specifications to ensure consistency in peripheral interfaces and processors.

Chief Technology Strategist at In-Stat, Jim McGregor stated that to avoid industry fragmentation, proprietary interfaces such as MIPI's CSI-3 and CSI-2 set a standard that is low-power, high-speed, scalable and cost-effective for the electronics industry as a whole.

MIPI CSI contributing companies include Texas Instruments, Synopsis, STM/ST-Ericsson, Sharp, Samsung, Renesas, Qualcomm, OmniVision, Motorola, LG Electronics, Intel, Infineon, Broadcom, Aptina, Analog Devices and Agilent.

In-Stat research also found that the highest growth rate and largest percentage of CSI-2 and CSI-3 penetration will be in handsets and smart phones. The main use of image sensors is expected to be in game consoles. In-Stat predicts that in 2016, more than 225 million image sensors for Tablet PC using MIPI will be shipped, with about 20% being represented by MIPI CSI-3 and 80% by MIPI CSI-2.
