MIPI DSI-2 & VESA Video Compression Enable Next-Generation Displays

By Joseph Rodriguez and Simon Bussières It is hard to believe, but it has been 20 years since MIPI Alliance was first founded. The organization was originally formed to standardize the video interface technologies for cameras and displays in phones, with the MIPI acronym standing for Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI). As the mobile industry has evolved, MIPI Alliance has evolved wi... » read more

Driving The Future Of Automotive Displays With Video Compression

Mobile devices have heavily influenced the demand for displays in all areas of our lives over the last decade, and one area where there has been a particularly rapid transformation is in cars. This article will look at some of display trends in cars and investigate how VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) video compression codecs can be leveraged by automotive designers to meet these ... » read more

Research Bits: July 26

Photonic computing with polarization Researchers at the University of Oxford and University of Exeter developed a method that uses the polarization of light to maximize information storage density and computing performance using nanowires. The researchers note that different polarizations of light do not interact with each other, allowing each to be used as an independent information channe... » read more

Designing Immersive AR/VR Displays

Last month, we looked at how VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) video compression codecs enable cutting-edge displays. Over the next couple of articles, we will take a closer look at some of the markets where VESA DSC (Display Stream Compression) and VDC-M (VESA Display Compression) compression offer significant benefits for designers working on display-based applications. Demand... » read more

Modeling ALE Scientists at U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), in coordination with Lam Research, modeled atomic layer etching (ALE) for semiconductor fabrication. “This would be one little piece in the whole process,” said David Graves, associate laboratory director for low-temperature plasma surface interactions at PPPL and a professor in th... » read more

Video Compression Enables Cutting-Edge Displays

Display technology has advanced in leaps and bounds. We can now create professional-quality video content on our mobiles, and our cars often have more displays than our living room. In recent years, electronics manufacturers have been using increasingly sophisticated display feature sets as a way of differentiating their products in the highly competitive consumer electronics market. Each new g... » read more

Are Tiny MicroLEDs The Next Big Thing For Displays?

One of the latest emerging trends is a renewed focus on microLED technology. What is a microLED, and why is the industry focusing on this technology? As the name suggests, a microLED, or µLED, is a light-emitting diode (LED) – roughly 100 times smaller than conventional LEDs. MicroLEDs can be arranged into arrays to make high-resolution displays for applications ranging from smartwatches... » read more

Research Bits: May 24

Printed flexible OLED display Researchers from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities and Korea Institute of Industrial Technology used a customized 3D printer to print a flexible OLED display. “OLED displays are usually produced in big, expensive, ultra-clean fabrication facilities,” said Michael McAlpine, a professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at University of Minnes... » read more

HDCP 2.3: Enabling Robust Security Of High-Res Displays

Displays, monitors and touchscreens are the interface to our digital lives everywhere—at home, at work, and in the car. Display designers continuously upgrade their products with higher bandwidth, new technologies, and innovative features. New, modular products incorporate micro LEDs to allow new form factors, such as designing displays that are as thin as a canvas, can be rolled up, or can b... » read more

Innovation In C-PHY

The addition of cameras and larger displays in mobile phones intensified the need to move data at higher speeds with fewer wires and low power using asymmetrical interfaces. The MIPI Alliance was formed in 2003 to standardize these interfaces and enable interoperability. The use of MIPI specifications has spread from mobile applications with extremely high-volume requirements to many other appl... » read more
