Google Approved as a Promoter Member of the MIPI Alliance


The Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) Alliance is a global organization, serving industries that develop mobile-influenced and moving-mobile-forward devices. Its core mission is straightforward: To provide hardware and software interface specifications necessary for device vendors to create mobile-connected innovations (while accelerating time-to-market and reducing costs wherever possible). The MIPI Alliance actively promotes and encourages developer education, liaison relationships with like organizations, and the tapping-into of other resources in order to simplify the industry’s challenges and further the MIPI’s own vision of growth in the ecosystem. The MIPI’s specifications can be found here.

At the end of February, the MIPI Alliance announced that Google had been approved as its newest Promoter member. As a newly appointed Promoter, Google gains a seat on the MIPI Board of Directors to guide the alliance’s strategic directions, as well as its key implementations in mobile, IoT, IIoT, AR and VR spaces. These cover medical devices in healthcare, industrial systems, vehicles, and consumer-focused applications.

This new Promoter member status didn’t come instantly, though; Google joined the MIPI Alliance in 2010, providing multifaceted contributions and even earning an MIPI award in 2021. Google now joins other Promoter members like Intel, Qualcomm, Bosch, Samsung, and Texas Instruments Incorporated.

“We are delighted to welcome Google as our newest Promoter member company,” said Sanjiv Desai, chair of MIPI Alliance. “This is a recognition of Google’s leadership across multiple MIPI working groups over the last decade, and now we look forward to Google’s contributions on the MIPI board in stewarding the ongoing development of MIPI specifications to advance interface technology across the many market segments that MIPI members serve.”

Neil Hendin, Hardware Engineering Manager at Google, will represent Google on the MIPI Board of Directors.
