OmniShield - security for all devices__f

Bringing better security to mobile, automotive or IoT

         

Consumers today use their devices to do more than ever before and the data they produce becomes extremely valuable to potential criminals. To add to this challenge, applications installed from untrusted sources make it very difficult to identify and stop potential security breaches. Luckily, there is now a solution to address security concerns at the […]

Low power Standing Egg sensor hub uses MIPS M5100 MCU

       

Sensor hubs have played a central role in the recent development of wearable and IoT devices but are now becoming increasingly relevant for other connected devices that require always-on, low power functionality. This category of chips is currently evolving from performing only simple, individual tasks (e.g. accelerometer, gyroscope, pressure etc.) to becoming a small compute […]

A look at the PowerVR graphics architecture: Tile-based rendering

      

I’m fond of telling the story about why I joined Imagination. It goes along the lines of: despite offers to go work on graphics in much sunnier climes, I took the job working on PowerVR Graphics here in distinctly un-sunny Britain because I was really interested in how Tile-Based Deferred Rendering (TBDR) could work in […]

Firefox OS home screen - MIPS PowerVR

Firefox OS now running on a MIPS-based reference tablet

       

Over 7 billion people call Earth home but only about a third own a mobile device. This means there is vast potential for companies to innovate and bring the exciting mobile web experience to new consumers, especially in fast-growing markets such as South America, South-East Asia, Eastern Europe and many others. Imagination plays a vital […]

PowerVR Series7XT GPUs push graphics and compute performance to the max

         

If you’ve been keeping track of the evolution of mobile graphics in the last decade, you might have noticed several trends that have changed the industry to the core. Probably the most visible and often talked about is the rapid increase in performance and feature set. It is becoming clear that high-end mobile GPUs are […]

New PowerVR Series7XE family targets the next billion mobile and embedded GPUs

        

One of the main advantages of PowerVR GPUs lies in their ability to meet even the most demanding requirements across a wide range of markets, from mobile devices and smart TVs to automotive and game consoles. If mid- to high-end devices prioritize performance per mW and useful, differentiating features, the entry-level market is driven by […]

Four questions about Moore’s Law, 28nm and the future of IP design

        

A few weeks ago Brian Bailey, the well-known technology editor for EDA at Semiconductor Engineering, kindly asked me to provide some comments in relation to a set of very interesting questions on the fate of Moore’s Law and the adoption of sub-20nm process nodes. You can find a selection of my answers, alongside opinions and […]
