MIPI Alliance Expands Reach with New Automotive Working Group
The MIPI Alliance, an international organization that develops interface specifications for mobile and mobile-influenced industries, today announced the formation of the MIPI Automotive Working Group (AWG) to address the needs of the automotive ecosystem. The group is open to MIPI Contributor members.
As the number of sensors continues to increase in the automobile to support passive and active safety, infotainment, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving systems, the need for interface specifications is apparent. Building upon the success of the MIPI Alliance Automotive Subgroup and Automotive Birds of a Feather (BoF) Group, the MIPI Board of Directors has approved the creation of the MIPI AWG.
“The approval of the MIPI Automotive Working Group marks a significant milestone for MIPI Alliance’s development activity,” said Joel Huloux, chairman of MIPI Alliance. “While MIPI’s focus is foremost on developing interface specifications for mobile devices, automakers already rely on MIPI’s industry-standard interfaces to enable a wide variety of applications. This additional focus on automotive is a natural extension to broaden MIPI specifications’ applicability.”
The first focus of the group will be to collaborate with other MIPI working groups on a new automotive physical layer specification for longer reach applications. This work will build upon the success of MIPI Alliance’s development of high-speed physical layer specifications that serve as essential interconnection in mobile and other devices. In addition, the group will look at other existing MIPI specifications and determine their adaptability to automotive use cases.
“We look forward to working with MIPI working groups and the MIPI Auto BoF to bring together automotive ecosystem requirements to support a high-speed serial data link,” said Matt Ronning, chair of the MIPI AWG. “MIPI’s Automotive Working Group will help align key interfaces for cameras, lidars, radars, displays and more with OEMs’ specific requirements in automotive. As new MIPI interfaces are developed, while rooted in mobile, they will now also have an eye toward automotive.”
“Standardization of all interfaces between subsystems, like surround sensors, and ECUs (electronic control units) is a prerequisite of modular concepts for automotive systems,” said Uwe Beutnagel-Buchner, vice chair of the MIPI AWG. “Additionally automotive systems stand to benefit from standardized interfaces to meet development, cost, testing and reliability requirements. Highly sensitive, mission-critical automotive applications also benefit from MIPI interfaces’ low electromagnetic interference (EMI), a capability that’s been proven in billions of mobile phones and other handheld devices.”
Join the MIPI Alliance Automotive Working Group
The MIPI AWG is seeking Contributor member participants to provide key input into current and future MIPI interface specifications. The Automotive Working Group will meet through regular teleconferences, as well as face-to-face sessions at MIPI member meetings.

175 Million Europeans Have Sleep Apnoea, Highlighting Scale of Global Health Crisis18.9.2018 13:05 | Pressemelding
Roughly 175 million Europeans have obstructive sleep apnoea, according to a late-breaking abstract presented by ResMed today at the European Respiratory Society’s annual ERS Congress in Paris. Leading researchers estimate 90 million Europeans have moderate to severe sleep apnoea, meaning they experience at least 15 breathing events an hour during sleep. These statistics are based on the latest scoring rules for determining one’s apnoea–hypopnoea index (AASM 2012) and are connected with a 16-country study announced in May 2018 that revealed an estimated 936 million people worldwide have sleep apnoea, a chronic sleep-disordered breathing condition associated with increased risk of mortality and reduced quality of life. The new global prevalence is nearly tenfold higher than the previous one – 100 million – estimated by the World Health Organization in 2007. European countries with the highest prevalence are: Russia, 40 million Germany, 26 million France, 24 million Ukraine, 13 million Sp

SIA Has Provided the New Real-Time Gross Settlement System in Denmark18.9.2018 13:00 | Pressemelding
SIA, European hi-tech company, leader in payment infrastructures and services, has further strengthened its positioning in the Nordic countries, by providing Danmarks Nationalbank with the new real-time gross settlement system (RTGS) that connects banks, mortgage banks and settlement systems. This RTGS platform is already in operation by the central banks of Norway and Sweden and it will soon go live in Iceland too. The up-to-date technology infrastructure developed by SIA has replaced the previous in-house system that has been in use by the Central Bank of Denmark since 2001. The new RTGS system, that secures safe and real-time transfer of Danish kroner, ensures continued efficiency, operational reliability, functional sophistication and simpler maintenance of the system. In this initiative, SIA has used its wholly-owned subsidiary Perago, based in Pretoria (South Africa) and specialized in central bank solutions. Later this year, Denmark will be the first non-euro country to particip
