Imagination Technologies Group plc (LSE: IMG; “”Imagination””), a leading multimedia and communications chip technologies company, reports that it has signed a multi-use license agreement with Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE: 6723; “”Renesas””), a premiere supplier of advanced semiconductors, for a multi-processor core from Imagination’s new POWERVR SGX Series5XT IP core family.

Renesas will deploy the technology in future system-on-chip (SoC) designs for the mobile market.

Under the terms of its licensing arrangements Imagination receives license fees and royalty revenues on shipment of SoCs incorporating Imagination’s IP.

About POWERVR Series5XT
Members of the POWERVR SGX Series5XT Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) IP core family feature significant performance enhancements over the already highly successful SGX Series5 architecture.
