ARM Mali-SVG-t Software for 2D Graphics Rendering Incorporated into Range of Samsung Mobile Phones
ARM announced that Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a leading mobile handset provider, has licensed ARM Mali-SVG-t software for use in a wide range of mobile handsets, enabling clear graphical rendering of 2D objects and easy scaling for different display resolutions and zoom factors. Samsung joins a group of leading handset manufacturers who are leveraging ARM Mali hardware and software technology to deliver innovative, next-generation mobile devices.
Mobile operators’ specifications are increasingly demanding SVG-t (Scalable Vector Graphics Tiny) compliant scalable 2D graphics capability across different platforms. ARM Mali-SVG-t technology provides a middleware layer compliant with the SVG-t 1.2 specification that is both optimized for ARM processors and able to take advantage of OpenVG compliant graphics acceleration technology, such as the ARM Mali family of graphics processing units (GPUs). The technology will enable Samsung to deliver optimum performance and power consumption characteristics across a variety of ARM powered platforms.
“Only ARM delivers the full spectrum of graphics system elements, ensuring complete compatibility across the stack and enabling Partners like Samsung to develop the most advanced consumer products,” said Lance Howarth, general manager, Media Processing Division, ARM. “Samsung’s selection of the Mali-SVG-t software validates our position as a vendor of choice for all embedded graphics needs, from those of handheld mobile devices to larger, more demanding applications. We continue to work closely with our Partners to ensure consistent graphics rendering, regardless of the device.”
