Nufront, a Chinese fabless semiconductor company, has broadened its portfolio of ARM technology with licenses for the ARM Cortex-A15 MPCore Processor and ARM Mali-T658 Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). Access to the advanced intellectual property (IP) from ARM will enhance the scalability of Nufront’s next generation application processor designs, delivering 3G-ready solutions to OEMs for smartphones, tablet computers and smart-TVs.
“Consumers today demand an unprecedented computing experience, and our customers need to offer them a wide range of products and solutions that meet or exceed their expectations,” said Rock Yang, Marketing Vice President, Nufront. “The new licenses for Cortex-A15 processor and Mali-T658 GPU technology will enable Nufront to broaden our portfolio of capabilities to better address trends we see emerging in mobile products. At the same time, the new technology will allow Nufront to leverage its strengths in the WCDMA baseband market to help mobile OEMS deliver the functions and features for future users needs”
The Cortex-A15 processor licensed by Nufront is one of the latest innovations in the Cortex-A series processors. It delivers a combination of performance and energy-efficiency to enable highly differentiated consumer product designs. Based on the Midgard architecture, the Mali-T658 GPU is the one of the most advanced solutions in the ARM graphics processor family and builds on proven GPU technology leadership from ARM.
As an ARM Partner, Nufront is also part of the ARM Connected Community, a global network of over 950 companies with access to a wide variety of resources and aligned to provide optimized solutions based on the ARM architecture.
