Standard Mobile Imaging Architecture

SMIA Specifications covers a raw bayer output image sensor head: Those specify housing, mechanical interconnection, functionality, register set and electrical interface.

Introduction and overview document is cross-section document about SMIA. You get all basic SMIA information from this document.


A functional specification fully standardises the control and image data interfaces. It is suitable for software implementation of image signal processing functions and also for use with a hardware processing machine.

This document specifies minimum level qualification test requirements for SMIA camera modules. The purpose of qualification tests, which are described in this document, is to demonstrate that a component will meet the specified electrical, mechanical and optical characteristics under defined environmental conditions at the satisfactory level.
