Fujitsu Launches Graphics SoC for Digital Dashboards & Car Navigation using OpenGL ES

Fujitsu Microelectronics Asia Pte Ltd announced the launch of MB86298 a new graphics controller System-on-Chip (SoC) for automotive infotainment systems. The new controller offers the highest-class graphics capability for embedded systems, as well as an industry first of providing output to up to 4 displays, and up to 4 video inputs.The MB86298 graphics controller contains an acceleration function for OpenGL® ES 2.0, making it simpler to construct an in-vehicle entertainment environment. Fujitsu Microelectronics plans to provide OpenVG 1.0 support for smooth enlargement/reduction of characters and straight or curved lines. Read More

NVIDIA looking to partner with application developers using OpenCL with the GPU Ventures Program

NVIDIA wants to give you between $0.5M to $5M, plus partner with you on marketing, development, distribution, and more. If you're developing an application that leverages a GPU's parallelism, and your application is built using OpenCL 1.0, CUDA, or ATI's Stream SDK, NVIDIA wants to hear from you. NVIDIA announced its new GPU Ventures Program and GPU Venture Zone website to support its new market-building effort.You can find details of how to submit your proposal on their GPU Ventures Program website.

CINEMA 4D r11 from MAXON now supports COLLADA

Staying true to MAXON’s commitment to integration, CINEMA 4D Release 11 now supports COLLADA. Exchanging scenes with other 3D applications is now easier than ever for diverse DCC production pipelines. CINEMA 4D‘s support of the Collada provides for comprehensive exchange of scenes including geometry, hierarchies, weighting, UVs, normals, and animation. Read More

DMP announces a two day getting start GLSL Programming training course

DMP has announced a new two day getting start GLSL Programming training course on April 16th and 17th 2009. The OpenGL ES roadmap has been tailored to the diverse needs of the embedded industry and contains two tracks with "1.X" and "2.X" specification roadmaps that will evolve in parallel. The 1.X roadmap will continue to be developed for new-generation fixed function 3D accelerators while the 2.X roadmap will enable emerging programmable 3D pipelines.This course introduce the world of programmable pipeline by explaining basic topics of the GLSL(OpenGL Shading Language) which is a core feature of OpenGL ES 2.x and OpenGL 2.x.
