The new ARM Mali media IP suite combines the Mali-V550 video accelerator, the Mali-DP550 display processor and Mali-T800 GPU series to deliver a solution of integrated media IP designed to efficiently deliver rich visual content. The Tensilica IVP DSP complements ARM's GPU and Video IP and is ideal for the complex algorithms in imaging, video and computer vision. Display Transmitter PHY is a physical display IP solution that works with the Mali-DP500 and Mali-DP500 display processors and supports all major display standards required in the mobile and consumer worlds, including MIPI DPI and DSI, eDP and HDMI. Through this collaboration between ARM and Cadence, customers can enjoy an optimized and compelling visual experience out of the box. 

"Cadence is a valuable IP ecosystem partner, and our work together enables highly differentiated, power-efficient multimedia solutions across a diverse range of consumer devices," said Mark Dickinson, general manager, media processing group, ARM. "Our mutual customers can greatly benefit from our collaboration to reduce system bandwidth demands. This can lower system power requirements and accelerate system-level integration."

"By licensing AFBC, we plan to work with ARM to ensure that Cadence IP works seamlessly with the ARM Mali media suite of IP," said Steve Roddy, senior group director, Tensilica marketing, at Cadence. "Through our longstanding collaboration with ARM, we're continuing to deliver innovations that benefit mobile users in high volume markets while keeping energy use as low as possible."
