United Kingdom : Imagination introduces industry s smallest Android GPU solution

July 17, 2014

Imagination Technologies (IMG.L) announces a new PowerVR graphics processor IP core that provides the industry s smallest Android compatible GPU solution. This latest addition to the line-up at an incredibly small 0.55mm2 (250MHz in 28nm) silicon footprint features full OpenGL ES 2.0 capability, ultra-low power consumption, and Imagination s advanced PVRTC texture compression technology.

With the new PowerVR Series5XE GX5300 core, companies can create compelling GUIs and user experiences with longer battery life for a range of low-cost, area constrained applications.

Imagination s PowerVR GPUs are the de facto standard for mobile and embedded graphics. The new GX5300 core builds upon previous Series5 devices, with substantial improvements in efficiency, providing an ideal low-power solution for entry-level smartphones, wearables, IoT and other small footprint embedded applications.The GX5300 features PowerVR s programmable shader-based tile based deferred rendering (TBDR) architecture that leads to high performance efficiency and the lowest power consumption per frame. Imagination s industry-leading PVRTC technology ensures minimum memory footprint and superior image quality.

Tony King-Smith, EVP marketing, Imagination, says: While Imagination has long been known for our leadership in high-end mobile and embedded graphics, the inherent scalability and power efficiency of the PowerVR architecture enables us to provide the best GPU solutions across the entire spectrum of consumer devices. We have leading products across all segments of mobile, consumer and embedded devices, and new GPU cores such as the tiny GX5300 core demonstrate our leadership for the entry-level. We see many compelling opportunities such as low-cost smartphones and tablets, wearables and IoT devices. Imagination s silicon IP will be at the center of many of these devices with our PowerVR GPUs, video and vision processors, MIPS CPUs and Ensigma Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, complemented by our FlowCloud device-to-cloud software platform.

The PowerVR GX5300 has been designed for graphics efficiency in ultra-compact silicon area, obtaining better real device performance and compatibility without unnecessary overhead. This GPU is optimized for small footprint devices, yet does not compromise functionality, with full support for APIs such as OpenGL ES 2.0, and Imagination s industry-leading PVRTC as well as all major texture compression formats.
