MIPI Alliance’s New I3C Interface Looks Set for Stardom

by Jim Turley

They say there are 10 kinds of people: those who understand binary arithmetic and those who don’t. Over at the MIPI Alliance, they’ve gone one better, too.

If you’re not a follower of MIPI, this is the nonprofit group that defines interface standards for small, mobile, and handheld devices. (BTW, MIPI stands for… nothing at all. They just liked the way it looked, apparently.) It’s not the only such group, for sure, but it’s one of the more successful ones, in the sense that its standards actually do get adopted and used.  Read More

What is FAR worse?

An 8-way time division multiplexor to "fairly share" memory between 6 processors and 2 DMA channels -- no priority accesses to starve another channel, no contention based allocations, just straight channel 1 gets only time slot 1, ch…

Now you might say that no one would be that stupid as to pack all accessed data into a single subchannel. With the number of sub-channels being 2^n (where n is 1, 2 or 3), it's also pretty likely that the underlying data structure to be processed will hav…

@Karl -- sure multiple banks/channels can offer concurrent read/write, or even multiply sourced reads/write -- but each channel still has the native single access or burst fill performance timings.

Now look at the last three figures above, where Cadenc…
