MIPI Alliance Releases MIPI CCS, a New Specification that Streamlines Integration of Image Sensors in Mobile Devices
The MIPI® Alliance, an international organization that develops interface specifications for mobile and mobile-influenced industries, today released a new specification that provides a standardized way to integrate image sensors in mobile-connected devices.
The new specification, MIPI Camera Command Set v1.0 (MIPI CCS v1.0), defines a standard set of functionalities for implementing and controlling image sensors. The specification is offered for use with MIPI Camera Serial Interface 2 v2.0 (MIPI CSI-2 v2.0) and is now available for download. In an effort to help standardize use of MIPI CSI-2, MIPI Alliance membership is not required to access the specification.
MIPI CSI-2 is the industry’s most widely used hardware interface for deploying camera and imaging components in mobile devices. The introduction of MIPI CCS to MIPI CSI-2 further increases interoperability, and reduces integration and costs for complex imaging and vision systems.
“MIPI Alliance is building on its success in the mobile camera and imaging ecosystem with MIPI CCS, a new specification that will enhance the market-enabling conveniences MIPI CSI-2 already provides,” said Joel Huloux, chairman of MIPI Alliance. “The availability of MIPI CCS will help image sensor vendors promote greater adoption of their technologies and it will help developers accelerate time-to-market with innovative designs targeting the mobile industry, connected cars, the Internet of Things, AR/VR and other areas.”
From startups to global organizations, companies are integrating image sensor components into their designs for specialized and mass-market products. To date, image sensor integration has required device-specific software to enable basic operations. As imaging applications have become more sophisticated and manufacturers have begun deploying multiple image sensors in their products, implementation has become more complex and time consuming.
MIPI CCS alleviates these challenges by making it possible to craft a common software driver to configure the basic functionalities of any off-the-shelf image sensor that is compliant with MIPI CCS and MIPI CSI-2 v2.0. The new specification provides a complete command set that can be used to integrate basic image sensor features such as resolution, frame rate and exposure time, as well as advanced features like phase detection auto focus (PDAF), single frame HDR or fast bracketing.
“The overall advantage of MIPI CCS is that it will enable rapid integration of basic camera functionalities in plug-and-play fashion without requiring any device-specific drivers, which has been a significant pain point for developers,” said Mikko Muukki, technical lead for MIPI CCS. “MIPI CCS will also give developers flexibility to customize their implementations for more advanced camera and imaging systems.”
MIPI CCS v1.0 was developed for use with MIPI CSI-2 v2.0 and, as such, is backward compatible with earlier versions of the MIPI CSI-2 interface. It is implemented on either of two physical layers from MIPI Alliance: MIPI C-PHY or MIPI D-PHY.
Join the MIPI CCS v1.0 Webinar
Developers are invited to attend a webinar “Introduction to MIPI Camera Command Set v1.0” on 10 January at 11 a.m. EST, 8 a.m. PST. For information and registration, please go to: http://bit.ly/2jMIp2g.

ISAE-SUPAERO Launches a New MOOC in the Field of Space and Aeronautics18.1.2019 11:00 | Tiedote
ISAE-SUPAERO, the world leader in aerospace engineering training has launched a new MOOC for the start of 2019: "DynaMOOC". “DynaMOOC”: understand and apply the fundamentals of structural dynamics The basic architecture of aerospace structures is generally founded on static criteria. The modern approach consists of integrating the dynamics not to certification but also to the fundamental design and specification of aerospace structures and light structures. Thus, all areas which involve structural works are affected: aircraft, vehicles, naval engineering and civil engineering. In-depth knowledge of the fundamentals of dynamics offers a new perspective on the classification and behavior of all mechanical systems. This MOOC goes back to the basics of solid dynamics applied to structural analysis. This four-week course is aimed at undergraduate students in mechanical or physical engineering who would like to comprehend the transition from statics to dynamics, as well as to structural engi
Ipsen: Patients Living with Spasticity Want Long-lasting Symptom Relief18.1.2019 09:30 | Tiedote
Regulatory News: This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190117005697/en/ Carenity Infographic Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) today presents at TOXINS, results from an international survey revealing the hidden burden of spasticity and the need for longer periods of symptomatic relief1. Affecting 12 million people around the world2, spasticity is one of the most common and disabling conditions associated with neurological diseases in adults (stroke, traumatic brain, etc.) and characterised by an abnormal increase in muscle tone or stiffness3. A survey of 615 respondents from 6 participating countries confirms that spasticity has a profound impact on ability to perform everyday tasks, including the ability to carry items, walk, and drive and reduces independence overall. The survey1 also found that spasticity affects the ability to work (22% of patients surveyed did not work) and impacts sex life as well as self-este
A Better Way to Earn Interest on Digital Assets18.1.2019 04:00 | Tiedote
Cred, the leading provider of crypto borrowing and lending with over $300 million in credit facilities, today announced the launch of CredEarn* on the Uphold platform. CredEarn allows Uphold customers to lend their crypto and fiat assets to Cred and receive up to 10% of annualized interest. “We’re thrilled to offer consumers the opportunity to earn interest on their digital assets and fiat currencies,” said Dan Schatt, Co-founder and President of Cred. “In a bear market, customers can benefit from the liquidity they receive when obtaining a fixed amount of interest in USD or Stablecoin. In a bull market, customers also benefit by receiving the full upside on the amount of crypto they originally committed.” CredEarn customers can commit to a six-month term with the ability to rollover assets for additional periods. No account minimum is needed and interest is paid out in U.S. Dollars or Stablecoin every three months on Uphold. The principal is paid back in the fiat or crypto amounts tha
Servier and Taiho Oncology Present Latest LONSURF® (trifluridine/tipiracil) Data at ASCO 2019 Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium (ASCO GI)18.1.2019 02:45 | Tiedote
Servier and Taiho Oncology, Inc. (U.S.), a subsidiary of Taiho Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (Japan), jointly announced today that the safety and efficacy data in the gastrectomy patient subgroup of the global Phase III trial TAGS evaluating LONSURF® (trifluridine/tipiracil, TAS-102) in patients with metastatic gastric cancer (mGC) are consistent with the overall study results published in The Lancet Oncology. These data were highlighted in an oral presentation at the ASCO 2019 Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium (ASCO-GI) on Thursday 17 January. In TAGS, 221 (44%) of the 507 randomized mGC patients had undergone prior gastrectomy (147 LONSURF, 74 placebo), which is reflective of the real-world patient population diagnosed with mGC. The results confirmed that trifluridine/tipiracil prolonged survival versus placebo regardless of prior gastrectomy. The overall results of TAGS demonstrated that patients treated with oral trifluridine/tipiracil showed a clinically meaningful and statistically s
