Fujitsu announces OpenGL ES 1.1-based MB86297 graphic controller for vehicle multimedia and virtual dashboards

The new Fujitsu MB86297 graphic display controller is optimized for high-end vehicle multimedia and virtual dashboard applications, including head-end units and fully configurable instrument clusters that require high quality and versatile human-machine interfaces. It supports all 2D functions, 3D functions, and fogging and lighting, to provide dramatic and realistic 3D effects. Because the MB86297 will support OpenGL ES 1.1, it makes software development a relatively hardware-independent task.

3D Graphics Made Easier with OpenGL ES for BREW

This article on DevX discusses how the introduction of OpenGL ES for BREW, developers now have access to a state-of-the-art 3D rendering platform thats portable across mobile platforms and devices. The article describes how to get your environment set up for OpenGL ES development in BREW, as well as introduces you to the basic concepts you need in order to get started. Note: there's no support for OpenGL in the base BREW emulator. Instead, you need to download the BREW SDK Extension for OpenGL ES for the BREWSDK.

NVPerfHUD ES performance tool for handheld GPUs shown at SIGGRAPH

At SIGGRAPH NVIDIA showed NVPerfHUD ES, a new performance tool for handheld GPUs. This is a comprehensive suite of performance tools to help debug and profile OpenGL ES applications by giving you access to low-level performance counters inside the driver and hardware counters inside the GPU itself. The counters can be used to determine exactly how your application is using the GPU, identify performance issues, and confirm that performance problems have been resolved. It works well in conjuction with gDEBugger ES.
