The MIPI I3C interface is an evolutionary standard that improves upon the features of I2C, while maintaining backward compatibility. This standard offers a flexible multi-drop interface between the host processor and peripheral sensors to support the growing usage of sensors in embedded systems.
The main purpose of MIPI I3C is threefold:
- To standardize sensor communication
- Reduce the number of physical pins used in sensor system integration and
- Support low-power, high-speed and other critical features that are currently covered by I2C and SPI.
Arasan has participated in multiple MIPI I3C Interop Workshops to ensure compliance of it’s I3C Master IP, I3C Slave IP, I3C Software and HDK
