ARM, the industry’s leading supplier of 16/32-bit embedded RISC microprocessor solutions, is demonstrating PowerVR MBX from PowerVR Technologies at the 2002 3GSM World Congress from 19-22 February, in Cannes, France and the Embedded Systems Show from 19-21 February, in Nuremberg, Germany.

The PowerVR MBX core for mobile graphics applications is designed for integration alongside ARM microprocessor cores and will enable the migration of modern 3D and video graphics content to mobile platforms. PowerVR MBX is a complete 2D/3D graphics solution for future wireless multimedia devices optimised for low power and high performance. The demonstration platform consists of an ARM 920 processor with PowerVR MBX in FPGA technology, with a 320×240 LCD display, and clearly demonstrates the high performance and market leading image quality of an ARM / PowerVR Technologies 2D/3D graphics solution.

ARM and Imagination Technologies expect that the PowerVR MBX technology, which is available for licensing from ARM for use in conjunction with ARM cores, will become the leading graphics solution for next generation mobile computing and communication devices. A companion vertex geometry processor (VGP) is also available for transform and lighting (T&L) operations.

Representatives from 99 countries and all sides of the industry are registered to attend the 3GSM World Congress, including operators, vendors, system integrators, software developers, content providers, investors, service providers and others. The Embedded Systems Show encompasses microcontrollers, processors, boards, hard & software tools as well as operating systems and programming languages for design engineers and system integrators.

The PowerVR MBX family includes cores with different capabilities for all the main mobile, set-top box and consumer electronics applications.

Visit the ARM stand at the 2002 3GSM World Congress at D12 in Hall 2, or at the Embedded Systems Show at Hall 12 E03.</p"
