Embedded Chip Uses PowerVR Series8XE GPU

14 March 2017

PowerVR Series8XE GPU PowerVR Series8XE GPU Imagination Technologies has announced that the SC1810 system on chip (SoC) from Socionext Inc., uses a PowerVR Series8XE GPU for innovative, high-efficient graphics. The SC1810 targets embedded graphical industrial and automotive applications such as camera based driver information systems, cluster and further information displays such as head-up display (HUD) units, passenger displays or rear seat entertainment systems.

The SC1810 represents a further evolution in both features and performance for in-vehicle graphics. In addition to its high-resolution PowerVR graphics capability, enabling significant improvement in 3D image processing performance compared to Socionext’s previous products, the SoC has a quad-core processor and is also capable of handling six channels of full HD video inputs, and three channels of full HD display outputs. The SC1810 also provides multiple H.264 decoding and encoding cores that can process various camera images simultaneously, supporting surround view, electrical mirror or drive recorder applications, which are rapidly gaining popularity.

Socionext and Imagination are demonstrating the new chip at the Embedded World Conference, being held March 14-16 in Nuremberg, Germany. This will be the first demonstration of a PowerVR Series8XE GPU in a sampled SoC.

Series8XE GPUs from Imagination reportedly deliver the best performance/mm2 for the smallest silicon footprint and power profile while incorporating advanced features and support for the latest APIs, including OpenGL® ES 3.2 and Vulkan™ 1.0. The PowerVR GPU performance empowers Socionext’s CGI Studio 3.0, the software development platform for hybrid 2D and 3D graphical interfaces.
