SH-Mobile3 Targets the Mobile Phone Market

London, UK: Imagination Technologies Group plc (“”;Imagination Technologies””;) a leader in System on Chip Intellectual Property (“”;IP””;) reports that Renesas Technology Corp. today announced the SH-Mobile3 (SH73180).

This next high-end model in the SH-Mobile series of application processors for mobile phone systems features IP licensed from Imagination Technologies. The SH-Mobile3 (SH73180) will enable advanced multimedia applications for next-generation mobile phones.
