Today, as the industry works on fleshing out the accelerated ray tracing ecosystem on Windows-based PCs, consoles, and eventually, onto other markets in the future, (with bigger GPUs leading the way), there’s a missing piece of the puzzle that’s yet to show up: ray tracing performance analysis software.
In this video we are demonstrating Imagination’s own OpenGL® SC™ 2.0 API software driver development, running on our automotive-grade silicon platforms as found in millions of production vehicles on the market today. The driver is a clean development, aligned to ISO26262:2018 process requirements.
A picture paints a thousand words and for ambitious companies with microcontroller unit (MCU) technology, the picture below is very clear – market growth in IoT-oriented connected devices offers great opportunities. In a slow-growing market, each new design win requires the removal of an incumbent. However, the rapidly growing connected IoT market offers ideal conditions for dynamic companies to gain market share quickly. Unfortunately, MCU companies without connectivity cannot play in this rapidly growing sector.
It is a time of uncertainty, volatility, complexity and ambiguity – all the things that we humans struggle with (so it is OK to feel you are struggling or overwhelmed). Sadly, the pandemic will have a deep impact, and many lives will be affected in some way – but there is light at the end of the tunnel, as decisive action in East Asia has shown.
Inside every A-Series, from the smallest to the very largest are eight individual hardware control lanes, each isolated in memory, enabling different tasks to be submitted to the GPU simultaneously, for fully secure GPU multitasking. We call it HyperLane Technology.
If you’re wary about Call of Duty®: Mobile, don’t be. Sure, there are compromises here and there – along with some mildly obnoxious microtransactions – but none of them spoils what’s arguably the best shooter right now on Android and it plays like a dream on a PowerVR-powered Oppo Reno Z.
Earlier this week, we announced our new iEB110 IP, a complete Bluetooth Low Energy IP solution based on the recently announced Bluetooth SIG version 5.2 specification. We’re particularly excited about this IP as the BLE 5.2 specification introduces LE audio, which is a significant step forward for Bluetooth audio, both in terms of sounds quality and functionality.
In ray tracing, different types of surfaces cause rays to bounce in a variety of directions, which causes the problem of ray coherency. Imagination’s PowerVR ray tracing solves this with a hardware-based ray tracker. Read on to find out more.
Kynisys is a new AI marketplace for edge compute that offered toolsets and all the building blocks that an edge AI system integrator needs. It’s an easy-to-use platform to create, test and deploy edge AI in less than a day; putting the power in the hands of those who have to solve “edge problems”.
We all know passwords are a problem. We have too many of them to remember, but too many of them are reused to make them secure. No surprise that they are the root cause of the vast majority of data breaches. Fortunately, clever minds are working at ways to replace them and they have come together to create the FIDO® (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance.
