Imagination has named four of eight licensees signed up so far for graphics cores from its PowerVR Series 6 family. Who are the missing four customers?
As my recent blog asking about the top ten customers of ARM Holdings plc (Cambridge, England) proved popular I thought I would try and repeat the trick with regard to graphics IP licensor Imagination Technologies Group plc. (Kings Langley, England), which of course is also a competitor to ARM.
However I don't have a ranking of Imagination's customers by revenue contribution to hand and so things will have to be done a different way.
Imagination recently announced the first products in its PowerVR Series 6 family, previously codenamed "Rogue." The company also said it has eight licensees for Series 6 cores including: ST-Ericsson, Texas Instruments, Renesas Electronics and MediaTek.
So who are the missing four licensees from that list?
My nominations would be:
and Qualcomm, which was disclosed as a licensor in Imagination's most recent financial results.
Readers may think (or know) otherwise. Feel free to share in the forum below.
