Standard Mobile Imaging Architecture Forum (SMIA)
Overview: The SMIA Forum was established to promote and support the SMIA specification, created in 2003 by Nokia and ST Microelectronics. Members of the Forum had certain benefits, but did not have any control over the specification itself. The specification was freely available, but not an open standard under usual definitions. The SMIA specification was intended to be used by companies making, buying or specifying miniature integrated camera modules for use in mobile applications. It was intended to be a complete specification, in that it is proposed that a product will be compliant with all of its elements. The main goal of the specification was to enable the connection of any SMIA compliant sensor to any SMIA compliant host system with matching capabilities, in order to get a working system with acceptable performance. The scope of SMIA covered a raw bayer output image sensor head, and the specification specifies housing, mechanical interconnection, functionality, register set and electrical interface.
