Vivante’s OpenGL(R) ES 2.0 Conformance Submission First to Support Depth Texture Extension
Vivante Corporation today announced that it has become the first OpenGL(R) ES 2.0 3D graphics technology provider to submit conformance results that include the Depth Texture extension (OES depth texture). OpenGL ES 2.0, an industry-specified fully programmable application programming interface (API), enables rapid rendering of cutting-edge 3D graphics for consumer electronics devices like high definition home entertainment, cell phones and cameras as well as navigation and automotive applications.
Vivante has submitted conformance results based on the GC600 2D/3D GPU IP core for the OpenGL ES 2.0 conformance test to the Khronos(TM) Group for review. The Khronos Group is an independent industry consortium responsible for the development, promotion and certification of the OpenGL ES standard.
Vivante is working closely with OpenGL ES 2.0 application developers and Vivante's semiconductor solution provider licensees to deliver realistic graphics capabilities to a broad range of consumer and automotive electronics devices including high definition home entertainment, mobile devices and automotive instrument cluster and console displays.
