VECTOR GRAPHICS GPUs

Vivante is the market leader and largest provider of vector graphics IP cores in the automotive market. This dedicated core targets the latest HMI and instrument clusters that require a dedicated vector graphics engine with QoS (Quality of Service). QoS ensures vector based needle renderings on dials are precise, clean, and fast without adding load to the 3D GPU or CPU. New technologies built around vector graphics can also be enabled in next generation applications, including the latest hardware accelerated web browsers and APIs for crisp and sharp fonts, lines, images, and documents.


An optimized software stack complete with developer tools, and an extensive application ecosystem are supported by our vector graphics pipeline supporting the latest OpenVG 1.1 API specification. Additional VG features can be unlocked through our VivanteVG API extension to create other eye catching effects.
