ON Semiconductor Joins Mobile Industry Processor Interface Alliance.Business Editors/High-Tech Writers
SOPHIA-ANTIPOLIS, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 25, 2004
Global semiconductor manufacturer teaming up with other
industry leaders as a participant in inaugural members meeting
ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN) announces that it has joined the Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI MIPI Mobile Industry Processor Interface
MIPI Music Industry Privacy Investigations ) Alliance and has been accepted by the alliance as a Contributor Member. The company will participate as a member of the System Power Management Investigation Group. The alliance is a not-for-profit consortium that has as its goal the definition and promotion of open standard specifications for mobile application processor interfaces. These open standards Specifications for hardware and software that are developed by a standards organization or a consortium involved in supporting a standard. Available to the public for developing compliant products, open standards imply "open systems;" that an existing component in a system can be replaced are intended to make implementation of hardware and software easier and facilitate reuse reuse - Using code developed for one application program in another application. Traditionally achieved using program libraries. Object-oriented programming offers reusability of code via its techniques of inheritance and genericity. across mobile devices, accelerating time-to-market.
"We are very pleased to be a member of the MIPI Alliance," said Keith Jackson For the former professional American football player, see Keith Jackson (football player).
Keith Jackson (born October 18, 1928, in Roopville, Georgia) is a former American sportscaster, known for his long career with ABC Sports television, his coverage of college football , ON Semiconductor president and CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. . "The addition of features such as cameras, enhanced audio and Internet capabilities continues to increase the demands placed on the power management systems of portable devices. ON Semiconductor's extensive experience in the mobile phone and portable computing computing - computer markets makes us an ideal partner to contribute solutions knowledge that supports the MIPI Alliance's goals of open architectures and hardware interoperability The capability of two or more hardware devices or two or more software routines to work harmoniously together. For example, in an Ethernet network, display adapters, hubs, switches and routers from different vendors must conform to the Ethernet standard and interoperate with each other. . We look forward to being an active participant in the MIPI Alliance."
Andy Khayat, ON Semiconductor marketing director for portable Applications, said, "ON's decision to join the MIPI Alliance was in part based on the belief that open industry standards will be a dominant force that shapes the mobile industry business environment over the next few years. We intend to steer our high-performance portable products road maps to comply with MIPI Alliance standards so that our customers can take full advantage of shorter development cycles and advanced system features."
About The MIPI Alliance
The Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) Alliance is a collaboration of mobile industry leaders with the objective to define and promote open standards for interfaces to mobile application processors. Through these open standards, the MIPI Alliance intends to speed deployment of new services to mobile users by establishing specifications for standard hardware and software interfaces to mobile application processors and encouraging the adoption of those standards throughout the industry value chain. The MIPI Alliance is intended to complement existing standards bodies Following are some of the standards bodies defined in this database. For Windows users of CDE, look up Lessons/Review/Associations. For Web users of CDE's online HTML version, review the Lessons list at the bottom of the definition.
Organization Covers ANSI U.S. with a focus on microprocessors, peripherals and software interfaces.
