BitSim is a member of the MIPI Alliance (www.mipi.org), an influential standardization organization within the mobile industry which has successfully developed a number of industry standards for various well-used and established interfaces for camera sensors, displays, storage, power and audio etc.
For some time, a collaboration has been initiated by companies active in the automotive industry, with both car manufacturers and subcontractors to enhance existing or develop new interface specifications for automotive applications.
For short distances in camera applications, MIPI CSI-2 is already used in the automotive industry. BitSim has its own IP block, Bit-MIPI CSI-2, used by customers in different industry segments.
Now, this cooperation will cover solutions for longer distances, up to 15 m, for camera and radar sensors.
Since there will be up to eight cameras in modern cars in the near future, the 40 cm that MIPI CSI-2 can handle today is not enough.
