Lattice Semiconductor has adopted the MIPI Battery Interface (BIF) standard within the iCE40 mobileFPGA family of products. As an industry-created and adopted standard, the MIPI BIF single-wire specification accelerates the design and use of smart batteries in mobile devices. Lattice Semiconductor is engaged with key customers on the MIPI BIF standard. They plan to make support broadly available through its IP suite during the first half of this year. The MIPI BIF solutions will be free of charge to customers with high-volume mobile applications.
