There are more graphics intensive applications and user interfaces in battery-powered mobile consumer devices, and this trend seems likely to expand even further in the future. In recent years the information volume and diversity of the content displayed on mobile phones and portable digital AV devices has increased explosively. At the same time the graphical user interface that allows users to access various information and content is becoming ever more important and more complex from computing perspective. Demand for new and more innovative user experiences via mobile devices have played a major role to expand the importance of mobile consumer devices in our everyday life.

The DMP IP core supports various industry standard graphical API specifications that have been established by the Khronos Group. It also complies with industry-standard SoC bus specifications such as OCP and AMBA.
DMP uses optimized graphics pipelines and dynamic clock gating to provide low power solutions that are suitable for portable devices where there is a need for long battery life.
SoCs for portable devices impose strict cost requirements. (SoC stands for“System on Chip.”) The DMP IP core provides the smallest gate size of its class available in the embedded industry, which contributes to the development of lower cost SoCs.
The DMP IP core does not just have excellent graphical processing performance, but it boosts the industry’s highest level of processing performance per unit area of silicon. This delivers efficient graphical rendering at lower silicon cost.
The degree of parallelism for the graphics processing pipelines within the DMP IP core can be changed in a scalable manner. This allows the DMP IP core to flexibly support the performance requirements for a wide range of graphics systems, from low-end to high-end graphics systems.
There are various specifications required for graphics for portable devices. The DMP IP core can be customized flexibly in accordance with your demands, in terms of both software and hardware. IP core customization is supported by DMP’s industry-leading development and testing environment.
SMAPH-S is based on the OpenGL ES 2.0 and Open CL 1.1, which are 3D graphics and parallel computing standards for leading embedded devices. SMAPH-S can be used for SoCs for smartphones and tablets that have seen explosive growth in recent years.
PICA200 Lite is a small footprint and cost effective OpenGL ES 1.1 core, which allows high resolution full 3D graphical user interface on price sensitive compact digital cameras.
In order to enjoy music and video anywhere and at any time, personal media players need to have both an easy-to-use graphical user interface and the capability to play for a long time while running on batteries. The OpenVG 1.1 compliant SMAPH-F 2D vector graphics IP core delivers high quality graphical user interfaces that can be operated smoothly, by exploiting 2D vector graphics such as Flash. At the same time, the super low power consumption makes it possible to enjoy content for a long time.
