Imagination releases First IP core Based on PowerVR Raptor Architecture


Imagination Technologies is rolling out the first intellectual property (IP) core based on its PowerVR Raptor imaging processor architecture- the PowerVR Series2 V2500 core.

The high-performance core offers a highly-configurable solution targeting a broad range of devices from cost-sensitive, mass-market feature phones to automotive to connected home security to premium smartphones and tablets.

The V2500 core is the first imaging processor IP core designed to operate as a cooperative part of a heterogeneous computing platform for next-generation applications. Close connections between the V2500 and other SoC resources can enable full support of 4K Ultra HD video and high pixel count photography in mobile devices and tablets.

Able to work with any video encoder, the V2500 is specially optimized for integration with Imagination's PowerVR Series5 and previous generation video encoders, featuring a dedicated encoder processing path, direct Zero Memory output to the encoder, and the ability to output image statistics and metadata for best-in-class encode quality and real-time bitrate control.

The V2500 core provides the features and functionality needed for optimal integration of modern CMOS camera sensors, with full support for sensors from all major vendors. The V2500 core simultaneously supports multiple sensors with fast context switching, enabling stereo, multi-cam and vision array support for volumetric imaging - all with a single imaging processor. Contexts are expandable to enable multiple stereo cameras. On a phone or tablet, this enables front and rear cameras to be routed through the single IP core, and encoded and displayed simultaneously.

The processing pipelines of the V2500 from CMOS sensor to RGB and YUV promise to offer the highest quality images possible with minimal noise. This includes 1D and 2D image processing pipelines, image enhancement pipeline with a full local tonemapper for enhanced dynamic range, display processing pipeline and encoder processing pipeline. With the V2500 core, the pixel depth of the pipeline can be configured to match the sensor, conserving power compared to DSPs with fixed datapath widths.

With the launch of the V2500 imaging processor, Imagination is also introducing the new PowerVR E5010 JPEG encoder, the lowest power JPEG encode solution available in the market. The E5010 core can be configured to reach performance in excess of 1Gpixel/second. Able to take direct input from the V2500, it enables encoding without the use of external memory.

The PowerVR V2500 core is available for licensing now.
