MIPI Alliance Developing MIPI Touch for Mobile Devices, Tablets and Automotive Applications

PISCATAWAY, NJ and Mountain View, CA --- The MIPI Alliance, introduces MIPI TouchSM, a forthcoming specification that leverages current and new MIPI specifications to provide an innovative, comprehensive touch interface. MIPI Alliance invites industry participation in the development of the touch specification. The organization made the announcement during MIPI DevCon 2016, its developer conference held this week.

MIPI Alliance is developing MIPI Touch to optimize the integration and performance of touch technologies in mobile phones, tablets, automotive dashboards and infotainment displays, and other devices and applications.

MIPI Alliance encourages manufacturers and OS providers to contribute to the MIPI Touch specification first draft, scheduled for completion in 2017. MIPI Alliance member companies and other organizations interested in sharing perspectives can join the MIPI Display Working Group, which is specifying the MIPI Touch specification, and theMIPI Software Working Group, which is investigating the architecture of a supporting software framework.

Versatile Architecture: High Performance, Low Power, Low Cost for Multiple Use Cases

The new touch specification will help designers respond to the increasing importance of touch-capable displays and the market’s demand for increasingly innovative touch features in mobile devices. The specification will also make it easier to integrate touch features into current designs.

MIPI Touch will help overcome time-to-market and integration challenges in mobile devices that have both display and touch features. Manufacturers will be able to use the solution to support single touch, multi-finger touch and stylus capabilities in mobile phones, tablets, automotive and other applications.

MIPI Touch will leverage current and future MIPI Alliance specifications under development, including a standard command set and MIPI I3CSM, the forthcoming sensor and control interface specification that includes backward compatibility with I2C bus devices.
