Imagination is a leader in the technologies that have enabled the mobile computing revolution across devices such as smartphones and tablets.
Having absorbed the feature-phone segment, smartphones now dominate the mobile space to create a mainstream of high-performance devices that form the majority of the billions of phones shipped annually.
As well as an increasing demand for graphics and general processing that come with ever larger and higher resolution screens, there are also new advanced applications such as computational photography, and an swell in demand for mobile devices to communicate with all sorts of other devices, from audio systems and TVs, to cars and home automation systems.
Increasingly the motto of the industry is ‘everything, everywhere’. Mobile solutions must now offer connectivity to bring content from your PC, your TV and your music library onto the device.
Security and protection of personal data, as well as streaming content is of increasing relevance to users and content providers.
We have addressed the demand for increased heterogeneous processing in mobile computing systems across all our technologies – PowerVR graphics processors (GPUs), PowerVR Vision & AI and Ensigma wireless communication processors.
