LG ELECTRONICS BECOMES LEAD PARTNER FOR ARM CORTEX-A50 FAMILY OF PRODUCTS AND NEXT-GENERATION MALI GPUS
LG Electronics licenses ARM’s leading-edge CPU and GPU technologies, taking next-generation SoC solutions to new performance levels
CAMBRIDGE – MAY 23, 2013 – ARM announced that LG Electronics has licensed the next generation of ARM® Cortex®-A50 series of central processing unit (CPU) solutions and the next generation of ARM Mali™ graphics processing units (GPUs). This agreement means that LG Electronics will have access to ARM’s highest-performing CPU and GPU solutions to create market-leading technology.
This agreement builds on an already strong relationship between LG Electronics and ARM, as LG Electronics has previously used both Cortex processors and Mali GPUs in its system-on-chip (SoC) technology. This new agreement will enable LG Electronics to offer a wider range of high-performance SoCs. Launched in October, the Cortex-A50 family bridges the performance requirements of next-generation 32-bit and 64-bit applications. The next generation of the Mali GPUs licensed by LG Electronics will extend the performance capabilities beyond that offered by the Mali-T678 GPU, taking graphics and GPU computing to new levels.
“The close interaction between the CPU and GPU becomes increasingly important as solutions transition between the 32-bit and 64-bit world,” said Bo-ik Sohn, senior vice president, LG Electronics. “Being able to implement Full Profile GPU Compute in conjunction with ARM big.LITTLE™ processing configurations will be a key driver to the overall performance and capabilities of our devices.”
“Licensing the highest-performing IP from ARM for both CPU and GPU enables LG Electronics to expand the possibilities for end devices,” said Pete Hutton, executive vice president & general manager, Media Processing Division, ARM. “The capabilities of next-generation Cortex CPUs and Mali GPUs in concert will make innovative features, at market-leading levels of energy efficiency, a reality.”
