Telechips Chooses PowerVR GPU for Automotive Solutions

June 19, 2019 Laura Dolan

Telechips chose Imagination Technologies’ PowerVR Series9XTP for its in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) and vehicle cockpit solutions.

The PowerVR architecture does the following:

  • Is capable of hosting multiple operating systems (OS) using a single GPU core
  • Offers an extensive tool suite for debugging and tuning 

Essential improvements include:   

  • Up to 50 percent fps/mm2 density increase
  • Extensive PPA optimization throughout the design, including low-level architectural tuning
  • ALU-width up to 40-wide per cluster for impactful growth in FLOP density
  • Reduced bandwidth usage through PVRIC4 and micro-architectural cache tuning
  • YUV sampling and filtering acceleration

“We selected Imagination’s PowerVR Series9XTP GPUs for two reasons – PowerVR’s extensive history and experience in the automotive industry and its GPU virtualization capabilities,” said Telechips’ Future Strategy Group Leader, Leanne Lee. “We needed a vendor that understood the unique challenges faced by the automotive market, and that offered a cost-efficient, flexible and futureproof solution, with the robustness needed for the target market. We found all of that in PowerVR and we look forward to collaborating with them on other automotive-focused projects in the future.”
