Advantages of MIPI Interfaces in IoT Applications
In addition to sensors, high-resolution cameras are key enablers of IoT devices. The challenge for IoT designers is to find a solution that delivers low power consumption and high performance, while meeting cost constraints. MIPI CSI-2 is a proven interface in the mobile market, and because of its successful implementation, it is being utilized in new applications like IoT and virtual/augmented reality devices. The new MIPI I3C specification delivers a cost-effective solution that enables multiple sensor connectivity in a simplified architecture. This presentation defines the MIPI CSI-2 and I3C specifications, and describes their implementation, as well as power and performance advantages in IoT SoCs.

Fearless Monolithic Integration of Bluetooth IP
While there are many technologies available for wireless connectivity, Bluetooth with low energy features has emerged as the standard of choice for IoT applications such as wearables/nearables. The new Bluetooth 5 is expected to enable smart home applications with extended reach and higher speeds. To meet their design requirements, designers must decide if they should integrate wireless technologies in a single chip or leverage off-chip solutions. This presentation details the benefits of integrating wireless technology such as Bluetooth low energy in a single SoC and explains how designers can reduce the cost and power of their IoT SoCs with a compliant IP solution. A brief outline of the newly released Bluetooth 5 features will also be given.
