LONDON Imagination Technologies, the Kings Langley based provider of system-on-chip intellectual property (SoC IP), has extended its licensing deal with Texas Instruments to include the PowerVR MBX Lite graphics core for integration into a range of applicationsprocessors based on the OMAP 2 architecture for mobile phones.
This deal extends the existing collaboration between the companies that earlier saw the PowerVR MBX graphics core integrated into TI's OMAP 2 architecture.
PowerVR MBX Lite has been developed to meet the growing multimedia needs of ultra-low power, cost-sensitive SoC applications such as mainstream mobile phones and handheld gaming devices. When used with embedded microprocessor cores, PowerVR MBX Lite enables the migration of complex 3D/2D graphics and video content to such platforms. The PowerVR MBX graphics processor targets more advanced and higher end mobile devices and PDAs as well as graphics requirements in other embedded consumer systems.
