The curtain is up and the M-PHY specification is taking center stage, positioned handle the many different roles required for a faster, more reliable, physical interface layer (PHY Layer) on mobile devices.

The script for the M-PHY specification was written inside the MIPI (Mobile Industry Processor Interface) Alliance by a working group made up of member companies, and set up to expand the capabilities of mobile devices by defining interface standards that will revolutionize the capabilities of the coming generations of mobile products. Faced with an explosion of mobile multimedia devices.....

The accelerating use of smartphones and the emergence of an exciting class of mobile Internet devices (MIDs) and Netbooks are creating an explosion of data transfer across wireless networks. Such full-featured devices give the consumer a multimedia viewing and listening experience, higher-resolution photography, and a richer set of applications like Web browsing and Global Positioning System (GPS) navigation. Cell-phone manufacturers and the chip providers that supply them need to decide which interface bus to use to support the required low-power, high-speed data transfer between the components that make up these new devices.....
