Vivante pushing the world's first wearable
equipment and Internet oriented whole
series of GPU
Figure core technology co., LTD. (Vivante Corporation) today announced immediately launched its latest GCNano series products, to improve its wearable devices and the Internet of things the GPU (graphics processor) series.The product series include GCNano Lite, GCNano and GCNano Ultra, are all kinds of wearable devices and the Internet of things market segment for the architectural design, thus for the upcoming generation of customized MCU/MPU (micro
controller/microprocessor) platform support, and this platform needs the most compact UI (user interface) graphics hardware and software.All products use limited CPU resources, limited memory resources, and a long battery life of MCU/MPU solution is optimized, and expand support
to include using OpenGL to need?ES 2.0 (GCNano and GCNano Ultra) solution of minimum DDR memory space and display controller, not OS/DDR configuration (GCNano Lite) and customization/comprehensive OS tightly integrated.Advanced GCNano to PPA (power consumption, performance and size) and software, the optimization efficiency, promoting the overall list (BOM) equipment performance and reduce the logistics cost, at the same time extend per charge the service life of the number of days/weeks, user experience and the screen is not restricted.
As part of the product available, figure core software driver stack, the SDK (software development kit) and toolkits will support in GCNano Lite for not OS/DDR interface configuration to achieve the underlying GPU acceleration NanoUI API (application programming interface), and makes the NanoGL API to support more advanced solutions, including embedded Linux, Tizen?, the Android (Android?And Android?Wear such proprietary or advanced operating system, as well as within the minimum memory needed the OpenGL ES 2.0 other real-time operating system (RTOS).All kinds of OS/the DDR platform will form a new generation of wearable devices and the Internet of things, the basis of bring personalized unique optimization experience for
everyone.GCNano drive includes good energy saving, intelligent synthesis and rendering and bandwidth modulation, can make the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and the developer can use ultra
light UI/synthetic drives on wearable devices and the Internet of things brings rich visual experience.
Figure core, President and chief executive of Dai Weijin (Wei - jin Dai) said: "wearable devices and the Internet of things will create a new access, analyze, and display the data, it has to do with smartphones change the way we get information is very similar. For the development of dramatic wearable devices and Internet products, satisfy user to intuitive UI, size, weight, and power requirements, the industry has expanded to include the specific use of MCU/MPU, hardware to support new kinds of products. The main driver of graphical UI is the product use, and the traditional MCU/MPU has always focused on simple UI display platform, so that the product is separated from the general consumer equipment. In order to solve this problem, we developed GCNano series and very focused on silicon dimension, low power, memory space, and the size of the drive, bandwidth compression and display controller/UI surface matching, image quality and minimum CPU overhead extremely tiny detail, to bring on the new MCU/MPU amazing experience. The main innovation will continue to make our smaller faster - more dazzle GPU IP become the" gold standard "in the field of PPA and has robustness in all market segments."
GCNano series include: the benefits of wearable devices and Internet use.Super light vector graphics (GCNano Lite) and OpenGL ES 2.0 (GCNano, GCNano Ultra) drive, the SDK and tools can be wearable devices and physical mesh screen graphical interface of the switch over to the consumer level.GCNano package also includes tutorials, sample code and documentation, to help developers to optimize or change their code.Dedicated to MCU/MPU platforms: efficient design will ease and significantly reduce the system resources, including full UI/synthesis and display controller integration, minimum CPU overhead, DDR and just flash memory configuration interface, modulation bandwidth and the underlying GPU drives and for wearable devices/iot GPU functions, in order to reduce the size of silicon.Ecological system and software support: developers can use light NanoUI NanoGL API to further enhance or customize its solution.Core figure for the large amount of industry support existing products include Android GCNano/GCNano on Ultra products series, Android Wear and key partners of the embedded user interface solutions, fonts, artwork and Qt development environment and related tools.
