A new inter-chip interface specification, SLIMbus™, under development by the MIPI (Mobile Industry Processor Interface) Alliance, is described. The primary target of the interface is isochronous transfer of digital audio signals, supporting all common sample rates and word lengths, and related device control, but the interface is equally well ap-plicable for any application needing moderate data rates up to 28 Mbit/s. The serial multi-drop bus with separate data and clock wires supports high-quality mobile audio by providing high-quality clock, flexible power management, and a large number of devices and audio channels.
