What's in the New MIPI Alliance I3C V1.1 Standard?

27 Feb 2020

Mobile devices today contain a rich assortment of sensors that need to communicate their information as quickly as possible at the lowest possible power. To achieve this the MIPI Alliance has gathered industry leaders to create a new interface standard for connecting peripherals and sensors.

I3C has the advantages in reducing pin count, increasing performance, and decreasing power while achieving some level of backwards compatibility with the long-established I2C interface. The new I3C V1.1, announced in January 2020, enables faster interface speeds up to 100 Mhz and has many other new features that will aid the transition from I2C to I3C in applications.
