Programmable Mali200 2D/3D/Video IP rasterizer core delivers PC quality graphics on mobile devices using OpenGL ES 2.0 and OpenVG
Falanx Microsystems announced their new Mali200, a fully programmable graphics and media acceleration core for mobile phones that will take full advantage of OpenGL ES 2.0. It offers sophisticated 3D graphics that go beyond Shader Model 3.0, along with advanced DSP and general multimedia acceleration via OpenGL ES and OpenVG. It uses a single-pipeline 2D/3D/Video IP rasterizer core to deliver 2D/3D acceleration, 16X Full Scene Anti-Aliasing, smart texture filtering & compression and 30fps video recording and playback. Mali200 is designed for use in any multimedia device requiring high performance and low power, such as mobile phones, personal media players and laptops. This scalability is further enhanced with support for OpenGL ES 2.0, which is designed to bring desktop quality OpenGL to set-top boxes, auto navigation systems and even state-of-the-art game consoles such as the PLAYSTATION 3. In a related announcement, Falanx will work with Zoran Corporation to deliver the Mali technologies to mobile phones in the second half of 2006.
