Patras, Greece, November 15th, 2012-- Think Silicon Ltd, today announced that DialogSemiconductor uses ThinkVG, a Graphics Processing Unit to get Graphics power in it's new seriesof products. ThinkVG is integrated in the recently announced Green VoIP™ “SC14453” multicoresystem-on-chip (SoC) along with ThinkLCD Display Processor that enables rendering of fluidgraphic user interfaces onto touchscreen LCD displays.
ThinkVG is the smallest Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) in the market supporting the KhronosGroup OpenVG 1.1 standard. It is an extremely low-gate count IP Core based on VShader, a C/C++programmable Floating Point SIMD Streaming processor, designed for graphics applications.System Architecture is Scalable and embedded software allows flexibility. ThinkVG comescomplete with Software Library implementing OpenVG 1.1 running on VShader and with APIpackage running on host processor with emphasis on minimizing CPU overhead by the use ofcommand lists and on reducing memory bandwidth by utilizing custom image compression hardware.
“ThinkVG is developed to support OpenVG having in mind to provide a very compact and lowpower solution for embedded devices that require fast 2.5D Graphics Rendering” said GeorgeSidiropoulos, Managing Director of Think Silicon. “We focused on designing Unified ShadingArchitecture assisted by a balanced pipeline that would achieve the highest throughput per gateratio due to high component reusability and at the same time offer scalability for differentstandards and performance levels in the future.”
René Kohlmann, Senior Director for Dialog’s Low Energy Wireless and VoIP Business Development,comments: “In close cooperation with Think Silicon, Dialog successfully integrated the ThinkVGgraphical process unit in its latest high end VoIP processor the SC14453."
ThinkVG is available today and can be complemented with ThinkLCD/ML, a multilayer Displaycontroller and Think2D/MJPEG, a 2D Composition Engine with optional built-in MJPEG decoder features.
Think Silicon LtdThink Silicon specializes in designing and developing Intellectual Property Semiconductor Cores inthe field of Computer Graphics for mobile/embedded devices including silicon design, APIsoftware libraries for industry standards like DirectFB and the Khronos Group OpenGL-ES,OpenVG, OpenCL, and OS drives. Think Silicon markets ThinkLCD/ML Multilayer Displaycontrollers, Think2D/2.5D a high performance 2.5D Graphics Acceleration and composition engine,and ThinkVG, a compact GPU for Vector Graphics. Think Silicon provides complete Graphics IPsolutions and becomes part of partners' product roadmap.
