HiSilicon licenses ARM Mali gpus to drive next gen smart devices

HiSilicon has licensed a range of ARM Mali gpus, including the Mali-400 MP and Mali-T658, which are designed to drive the next generation of smart connected devices. The company has also licensed the latest ARM Cortex processor technology.

"The Mali gpu architecture enables HiSilicon to optimise our range of graphics solutions to address next generation mobile and home device requirements," said George Yiu, head of processor BU, HiSilicon. "Mass deployment of heterogeneous computing platforms is becoming more of a reality and I see ARM technology providing a unique advantage to address the needs of smart terminals through to the cloud."

HiSilicon hopes that the capabilities of the Mali architecture will enable it to open up a range of new use cases outside traditional graphics processing, including computational photography, image processing and augmented reality.

"In the past 12 months we have seen tremendous uptake and growth in the unit shipments of Mali-enabled SoCs across multiple device categories including market leading smartphones, tablets and DTV solutions," said Simon Segars, evp and general manager, processor and physical IP divisions, ARM. "By being able to harness and optimise the performance that will be possible through ARM's energy efficient Cortex processors and Mali GPUs, HiSilicon will be able to provide consumers with richer user experiences in the most energy efficient way."
