Imagination Technologies announced that it has joined SiFive‘s DesignShare ecosystem, giving system designers easy access to its industry-leading PowerVR GPU and neural network accelerator (NNA) IP cores. The PowerVR GPU will be the first fully featured GPU supporting the Vulkan® applications programming interface (API) available via the DesignShare ecosystem.
DesignShare reduces the upfront costs of acquiring IP for System-on-Chip (SoC) prototyping. Imagination’s PowerVR Series8XE GPU and PowerVR Series3NX NNA IP will be available for customers to use in their DesignShare SoCs, with the expectation of further Imagination IP being made available in the future to meet market demand. PowerVR’s integrated GPU and NNA software stack will enable customers to achieve the very best performance and flexibility. The PowerVR software has been designed to work with all processor architectures, including the rapidly-growing, open-standard RISC-V that is at the heart of the SiFive DesignShare ecosystem.
