In-Stat, a company dealing in market intelligence on Mobile Internet and Digital Entertainment ecosystems, has announced that more than 225 million tablet PC image sensors using MIPI will be shipped in 2016.
The efforts of MIPI Alliance, a non-profit firm that develops interface specifications to drive reliability in peripheral and processor interfaces, resulted in increased demand for MIPI CSI-2 in electronic and computing devices using image sensors. MIPI's CSI-3 and CSI-2 provide low-power, high-speed, scalable and cost-effective solutions for the electronics industry.
Serial image sensor interfaces address the limitations of parallel interfaces in handling higher image resolutions, but face an incompatibility issue. The MIPI CSI-2 standard helps address this incompatibility.
According to new research findings, by 2016 the MIPI CSI-2 standard would exceed 70% in consumer and computing electronic products with image sensors. Game consoles, handsets and smartphones will drive the growth CSI-2 and CSI-3 standards.
Agilent, Aptina, Infineon, LG Electronics, Analog Devices, Intel, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments are some of the companies that contributed to MIPI CSI.
