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!
MIPI Alliance hosted their first I3C Interop Workshop open to non-members. By all measures, the event was a great success, and let me tell you why.
The result of a close collaboration with Intel, Renesas unveils a family of 2:4 and 2:8 I3C Intelligent Switches to greatly improve scalability of I3C on next-gen servers and infrastructure equipment.
The MIPI Alliance will be hosting the next I3C Interop Workshop on 13-14 June in Munich, Germany. This workshop will be open to non-members for the first time!
The Renesas F0443 is a Dual Matched Broadband RF digital variable gain amplifier designed for use in diversity/MIMO receivers. This is quite a deviation from the typical applications of I3C-capable devices.
With I3C being the standard for DDR5 management, it only makes sense that the ecosystem of supporting components also adopt I3C as their primary communication interface.
The iMX RT Crossover Microcontrollers are an interesting beast. They've got some interesting bells and whisltes, but the real reason that I'm writing about them today is due to the fact that the RT500 and RT600 series devices feature I3C peripherals.
