The Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) Alliance has released the Display Serial Interface Specification (DSI) for mobile phones.

DSI is based on MIPI's D-PHY physical layer specification, a high-speed, low-power scalable serial interconnect. The SLVS-based physical layer enables data rates as high as 1Gbps per differential set of wires, while generating minimal noise.

Based on the core D-PHY technology, DSI adds features to meet the needs of display subsystems in mobile devices. They include low-power modes, bi-directional communication, native support for 16, 18 and 24-bit pixels, the ability to drive up to four display panels from a single interface, and support for both buffered and unbuffered panels.

"This standard brings important benefits to a wide range of mobile systems, from simple low-end devices to the highly complex smartphones to larger handheld platforms," said Dick Lawrence, chair of MIPI's display working group, in a statement. "The mobile industry has been waiting for an open standard to converge upon, and DSI provides the compelling technology to drive that transition."
