Get that Smartphone Chip out of my Wearable!

Get that Smartphone Chip out of my Wearable!
by Daniel Nenni on 05-08-2014 at 11:30 am

Image RemovedLast week, I had the pleasure to present at the Linley Group Mobile Conference. My presentation was part of the Wearable Device Session, which examined wearables from several different angles including software, sensor, processor, and IP.

As the smartphone market is maturing and the pace of innovation generally… Read More


Intel is Still Missing Mobile!

Intel is Still Missing Mobile!
by Daniel Nenni on 05-07-2014 at 9:00 am

Paul McLellan was on assignment in Hong Kong last week so I attended the Linley Mobile Conference and was not surprised Intel did not present. During the networking sessions I asked more than a dozen people why and the answers were pretty focused on “Intel still does not play well with others” and “Intel’s current mobile offerings… Read More


Does Processor IP still get the Lion’s share in 2013?

Does Processor IP still get the Lion’s share in 2013?
by Eric Esteve on 04-17-2014 at 1:00 pm

I think that the answer is pretty obvious, but the interesting point is to figure out which processor type, and which part of revenues, up-front license or royalties? One of my customers, let’s call him Mr. X, ask me to clarify this point. Mr. X has bought the excellent report from Gartner “Market Share: Semiconductor Design Intellectual… Read More

Image RemovedThis morning Imagination announced their latest GPU cores, including the world’s smallest fully-featured OpenGL ES3.0/OpenCL GPU core. More on that below. And it is the Internet…and graphics…so cats. Graphically rendered cats.

The first core is a a high end core new generation PowerVR Series6XT… Read More


Raised on radio: RPUs target autos and wearables

Raised on radio: RPUs target autos and wearables
by Don Dingee on 12-29-2013 at 9:00 pm

We’ve become familiar with Imagination Technologies as a leading provider of IP for mobile GPUs, and within the last year the acquisition of the MIPS architecture has established them further in NPU and SoC circles. Their latest move targets an IP solution more in line with their heritage.

Imagination, way before becoming famous… Read More


It’s about the mobile GPU memory bandwidth per watt, folks

by Don Dingee on 11-21-2013 at 4:00 pm

There has been a lot of huffing and puffing lately about 64-bit cores making it into the Apple A7 and other mobile SoCs, and we could probably dedicate a post to that discussion. However, there are a couple other wrinkles to the Apple A7 that should be getting a lot more attention.

There are two primary causes of user frustration in multimedia… Read More

Image RemovedThis fall there seems to be a bumper harvest of cores. Today Imagination Technologies announced their latest core for image signal processing. Like all of their cores, it is designed to be part of an SoC and is designed to work with other Imagination cores to build a complete image processing system. In particular, … Read More


What you compress may not be all you get

What you compress may not be all you get
by Don Dingee on 10-30-2013 at 4:00 pm

Now that we’ve looked at the basics, we wrap up this three-part series exploring PVRTC texture compression. We’ll take a brief look at PVRTC2, the latest version of the technology, and then explore the issues behind visual quality from several different angles.

PVRTC2 is supported on the newest Series5XT or Series6 GPU cores from… Read More

Image RemovedSince Imagination’s acquisition of MIPS at the end of last year, the MIPS product line has been given a new lease of life. There are two things driving this. The first is simply that with its new home, the MIPS architecture has a solid future whereas before it was uncertain. Secondly, Imagination moved their own… Read More
