London, United Kingdom-December 6, 2021 Imagination Technologies announced today that its ultra-efficient BXM-4-64 graphics processing unit (GPU) has been adopted and licensed by YADRO Microprocessors. YADRO Microprocessors is a fabless chip design company with a leading position in the Russian market for its enterprise server and storage solutions. IMG B-series GPUs will be used in YADRO Microprocessors’ EL Construct T series RISC-V-based system-on-chip (SoC). The target market is enterprise tablet applications. The SoC is expected to be shipped in 2023.
The advantages of IMG BXM-4-64 GPU in the mobile market have been repeatedly verified. It has the highest area efficiency and the number of pixels per clock (4PPC) among the GPU IPs available on the market today. It also provides the B series The additional advantage of multi-core architecture to support users to achieve scalability.
BXM is equipped with powerful application programming interface (API) and operating system support, further enhancing its compatibility with any Linux-based tablet software. The GPU is also fully compatible with the EL Construct T RISC-V main processor, thanks to the driver software stack that the GPU can cooperate with any CPU architecture, achieving the design goal of being easily portable and integrating with various operating systems. So as to help customers realize a complete solution.
Artem Ikoev, Chief Technology Officer of YADRO, said: “As a high-tech engineering company, we are always looking for partners at the forefront of innovation. Imagination’s BXM GPU is a significant advantage for us because it allows us to be confident What is going to be implemented is a proven, mature architecture that is fully compatible with the SoC infrastructure, while maintaining power efficiency without sacrificing speed. This is useful for displaying high-speed and high-quality complex graphics on the tablet screen It’s very important.”
The IMG B series includes Imagination’s IMGIC technology, which is the most advanced image compression technology on the market and can provide customers with new options in terms of bandwidth savings. IMGIC provides multi-level real-time image compression without increasing chip area, thus achieving a balance between storage bandwidth and image quality.
Steve Evans, Chief Revenue Officer of Imagination Technologies, said: “As more and more companies invest in mobile solutions, we see that the entire Russian market is vigorously promoting technological innovation. This cooperation with YADRO is Imagination in this market. Opportunities to achieve beneficial growth. We are excited about the first step taken in cooperation with Yadro and look forward to more opportunities for cooperation in the coming years.”
