Imagination receives TSMC 2015 Graphics Partner of the Year Award

Recognition highlights advanced technology collaboration between Imagination and TSMC

London, UK – 24 September, 2015– Imagination Technologies (IMG.L) announces that it was awarded a Partner of the Year Award from TSMC during the TSMC Open Innovation Platform® (OIP) Ecosystem Forum. Imagination received this recognition in the Graphics IP category for its collaboration with TSMC to develop highly optimized reference design flows and silicon implementations using Imagination’s industry-leading PowerVR Series6 GPUs combined with TSMC’s advanced process technologies, including 16nm FinFET process technology.

TSMC selects the winners for the partner award based on customers’ feedback, the number of tape-outs and wafer shipment enabled by the IP, along with the strength of technical support offered by the company.

Tony King-Smith, EVP marketing, Imagination, says: “We’re delighted to receive this honor from TSMC. Our long-time collaboration is focused on helping our mutual customers get the most out of Imagination’s IP combined with TSMC’s advanced processes. This includes developing improved design flows and engineering guidance through PPA projects such as our PowerVR Series6XT GPU on 16nm FinFET.”

Suk Lee, TSMC senior director, Design Infrastructure Marketing Division, says: “This award recognizes Imagination’s excellence in delivering leading-edge graphics technology on our advanced process nodes. Imagination’s commitment to delivering the highest quality results and strong product differentiation, enables our mutual customers to speed their time to volume production in the most efficient way.”

Imagination and TSMC are also working together to optimize Imagination’s IP platforms incorporating PowerVR multimedia IP, MIPS CPUs, Ensigma RPUs and OmniShield security technology with the broad portfolio of TSMC processes to dramatically reduce time to volume and R&D costs for creating next generation smart, connected SoCs for IoT, automotive, consumer, enterprise and mobile markets.
