Imagination Technologies extends successful POWERVR SGX53x family

Latest POWERVR SGX531 graphics IP core available for licensing now

Imagination Technologies – the leader in mobile and embedded graphics – announces the launch of the POWERVR SGX531 IP (Intellectual Property) core with native support for emerging trends in higher performance SoCs (Systems on Chip) that incorporate 128-bit or other higher data throughput bus fabrics.

POWERVR SGX531 takes the already industry-leading capabilities of POWERVR SGX IP cores to another new level with an upgraded 128-bit internal bus architecture and related enhancements to maximise performance when integrated in the latest SoCs. This makes POWERVR SGX531 an ideal solution for next generation SoCs, including those targeting 1080p HD resolution displays and high frame rate applications.

Says Tony King-Smith, VP marketing, Imagination Technologies: “”POWERVR SGX531 continues our leadership in delivering the strongest roadmap in the business. . Imagination’s ongoing R&D innovation in embedded graphics demonstrates we are continually delivering new features and performance levels.””

Deliverables are available now for the POWERVR SGX531 IP core, which is already in design with lead customers.

The rapid adoption of 3D graphics in the consumer and mobile markets, along with the popularity of sharing personal content on any available display, is driving the growing requirement to address 1080p capable HD screens at high frame rates, even from handheld and portable devices.

The POWERVR graphics architecture is sweeping the embedded world with over 100 POWERVR graphics-enabled devices shipping and more than 100 million production SoCs already shipped.
