Entropic Switches To ARM Mali For Superior Graphics Performance and Extends ARM Cortex Processor Licenses

ARM ® (LSE: ARM; Nasdaq: ARMH) today announced that  Entropic (NASDAQ: ENTR), a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, has licensed the ARM Mali™-400 and Mali-450 Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) technology and has also entered into a new license agreement for the Cortex-R5 processor. The strengthened partnership will enable Entropic to provide more advanced media and connectivity processing to its customers across the connected home ecosystem, from manufacturers of set-top boxes (STB) and CE devices to makers of home networking solutions.

Entropic offers a diverse portfolio of STB system-on-a-chip (SoC) and MoCA® (Multimedia over Coax Alliance)-based connectivity solutions that will increasingly utilize the combination of ARM MPCore Cortex processors and graphics processing technology as the basis for the fundamental platform. The Company reliably and securely delivers and processes multimedia digital content into and throughout the home to seamlessly support the transition from traditional broadcast to IP streaming video delivery.

The strengthened ARM and Entropic alliance comes at a time when global Pay-TV service providers are accelerating their evolution toward IP video gateway/client architectures in the home, which require faster, more robust media processing solutions. By expanding the agreement for the Cortex series, Entropic is making a commitment to its customers to provide advanced, integrated multicore SoC plus MoCA platforms that deliver on higher performance, lower power and greater scalability.

To complement the ARM Cortex processors, Entropic is investing in the Mali GPUs, which maintain the core ARM principles, namely high performance, industry-leading power efficiency and improved system cost. ARM’s Mali-400 and Mali-450 GPUs take performance density to new levels and are designed to minimize power and bandwidth requirements. The Mali-450 GPU has been optimized with a special focus on energy and bandwidth savings.

"Our strengthened partnership with ARM is an important step to advancing the evolution of the connected home,” said Vahid Manian, senior vice president, Global Operations, Entropic. “The ARM multi-core architecture coupled with its high-speed graphics engine enables Entropic to deliver richer, faster media experiences in its next-generation platform silicon solutions.”
