Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) and Imagination Technologies have collaborated to develop a targeted ecosystem leveraging the power of TI's OMAP 2 platform and Imagination's PowerVR MBX graphics accelerator. The collaboration offers an extensive portfolio of optimized content, tools and middleware to address the growing 3D graphics hardware accelerated mobile phone marketplace.

The companies are working with third parties to optimize tool chains, graphics stacks and content for mobile phones. Developers can extract new levels of performance and game-play experience for 3D games and graphics by leveraging the combination of TI's OMAP platform and Imagination's PowerVR MBX 3D graphics accelerator.

Previously, the quality of mobile games has been limited by the processing capacity of the mobile phone platform. TI and Imagination are addressing this limitation by combining the horsepower of Imagination's embedded PowerVR MBX 3D engine, which includes the fully programmable VGP vertex processor, with TI's OMAP 2 platform, which includes an ARM1136 with a dedicated vector floating point unit, a C55x DSP for audio and speech, and a full imaging and video processor.
