MediaTek Extends Partnership With ARM To Drive Next-Generation Mobile And Consumer Technology

ARM (LSE: ARM; Nasdaq: ARMH) the world’s leading semiconductor IP supplier and MediaTek Incorporated (TWSE:  2454), a leading fabless semiconductor company for wireless communications and digital multimedia solutions, announced today that MediaTek has acquired a broad license to Cortex-A50 Series processor cores and the next generation of ARM Mali graphics processing Unit (GPU) solutions. This combination positions MediaTek and its customers at the fore of current central processing unit (CPU) and GPU technology.

“MediaTek has taken the leadership position with the MT8135 mobile SoC being the first application processor to employ ARM’s big.LITTLE™ architecture in a heterogeneous multiprocessing (HMP) configuration," said Tom Cronk, executive vice president and general manager, Processor Division, ARM. “ARM is pleased to build upon this partnership for innovative mobile consumer products. The Cortex-A50 series of processors, alongside the Mali GPU products, help MediaTek to continue its position as an industry leader.”

“MediaTek is delighted to be working closely with ARM to bring the benefits of cutting-edge CPU and GPU solutions to manufacturers and consumers worldwide,” said Johan Lodenius, chief marketing officer, MediaTek. “Together with ARM, we are setting the pace for low power, high performance products that give users the benefits of next-generation processing speed, security and graphics.”

ARM is in the unique position of providing an optimized compute platform that uses ARM Cortex processors, Mali GPU and ARM CoreLink™ CCI-400 technologies. Alongside technologies such as big.LITTLE and MediaTek’s SoC and system expertise, this heterogeneous approach means that the broad range of applications needed in mobile devices can be processed faster and more efficiently when divided between the CPUs and the GPUs. This arrangement makes full use of the inherent capabilities of each system component to achieve the best possible balance of power and performance.

The ARM Cortex-A57 and ARM Cortex-A53 support the ARMv8-A Architecture with both 64-bit and 32-bit execution. These processors extend the available performance range with a focus on power-efficient implementation while maintaining compatibility with the existing 32-bit software ecosystem around ARM processors. The ARM Mali GPU family scales to deliver industry-leading graphics on entry level smartphones, through to visually stunning user experiences for future top-end superphones, tablets and Smart TVs.
