I3C Cafe - Now Brewing: A New Digital Protocol
Welcome to I3C Cafe, the first site dedicated to the exchange of news and information regarding industry adoption of the MIPI I3C® (and subsequently I3C BasicSM) protocol. First released in December 2018, the MIPI Improved Integrated Inter Integrated Circuit (I3C) communication protocol has matured to the point that it's starting to show up in mainstream semiconductors. No longer constrained to FPGA projects with licensed IP blocks, the stage is set for widespread adoption. Sit back, sip your coffee and enjoy the show!

Microchip's 8-bit MCU offers the fastest path to I3C Target development, especially when paired with Binho tools.
The new Entry Line RA-series MCUs support I3C SDR communications in Controller or Target roles. Still no HDR-DDR mode, but offers a great step up from the limitations of the RA2E2.
After years of having I3C Target support in their sensor lines, ST has finally added an I3C controller to their catalog with the introduction of STM32H5 series MCUs.
Marking their first formal participation at the Embedded World conference, The MIPI Alliance is offering an I3C session as part of the Board Level Hardware Engineering track.
