Marketwire: In-Stat predicts MIPI CSI-2 penetration is to surpass 70% in computing and consumer electronic devices with image sensors by 2016. Smartphones and handsets will account for the largest percentage and highest growth rate of CSI-2 and CSI-3 penetration.
In-Stat expects over 225 million Tablet PC image sensors to ship using MIPI in 2016, with MIPI CSI-3 representing about 20% of these, and MIPI CSI-2 representing 80%.
"Proprietary interfaces prevent devices from different manufacturers from working together and result in industry fragmentation," says Jim McGregor, Chief Technology Strategist. "MIPI’s CSI-2 and CSI-3 provide the entire electronics industry, not just mobile devices, with a standard that is high-speed, low-power, cost-effective, and scalable."
