The MIPI Alliance has released new versions of MIPI Display Serial Interface 2 (DSI-2) and MIPI Display Command Set (DCS). Both new specifications support the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) Display Compression - M (VDC-M), a display interface compression standard specifically designed for the handheld display market.
MIPI DSI-2 v1.1 specifies the physical link between the chip and display in devices such as smartphones, tablets, AR/VR headsets and connected cars. MIPI DCS v1.4 specifies display functions such as resolution, width and brightness that are transmitted over MIPI DSI-2 v1.1.
The VDC-M standard provides up to 5:1 compression with no visible effect on video quality and a corresponding reduction in power consumption. The combination of VDC-M and MIPI DSI-2 and DCS helps systems designers minimize device cost and complexity, maximize battery life and deliver the high-resolution video content that customers seek.
MIPI DSI-2 v1.1 and MIPI DCS v1.4 are available to MIPI members. For more info, pay a visit to the MIPI Display Working Group.
