Update the user experience on industrial devices with the area-efficient A-Series GPU, guaranteed to banish clunky, unresponsive user interfaces to the past.
wearable icon


The low area, power conscious A-Series GPUs are perfect for devices where space is at a premium, but a responsive user interface is a must-have.

Power management optimisations combine with the innate performance of A-Series GPUs to bring a smooth user interface and sustained gaming performance to mainstream mobile devices.

AAA GPU architecture

The A-Series architecture features an ultra-wide arithmetic logic unit (ALU) complemented by compiler optimisations that maximise ALU utilisation. It gives silicon designers more bandwidth management options by making the cache sizes configurable. And it offers improved power management with algorithms that immediately slow down – or even put to sleep – parts of the GPU that aren’t in use.

HyperLane Virtualisation

HyperLane, Imagination’s virtualisation solution, brings another level of flexibility to IMG A-Series. This technology provides eight individual hardware control lanes, each isolated in memory, enabling different tasks to be submitted to the GPU simultaneously for fully secure GPU multitasking.
