Vivante announces collaboration with China's ICT
Vivante Corporation has announced a collaborative relationship with the Institute of Computing Technology (ICT) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
This long-term development partnership will enable ICT and Vivante to integrate their respective CPU and GPU designs into a cost-efficient, low-power system on chip (SoC) and advance netbook technology for the next generation.
ICT, which specialises in comprehensive research into computer science and technology in China, successfully produced China's first general-purpose digital computer and is a research-and-development base for high-performance, low-power computer technology in China.
ICT research focuses on strategic, advanced and fundamental contributions towards industry innovation, national needs and market demands.

Multipix Imaging adds Pleora IP engines to its range of networked video connectivity devices download
Multipix Imaging has added two further IP engines from Pleora Technologies to its range of networked video connectivity products: the Iport NTx-Ten is a high-performance GigE Vision transmitter using 10 GigE technology, while the Iport NTx-U3 is a compact transmitter enabling the fast creation of USB3 Vision-compliant cameras.
Avago Technologies has announced that its 28nm serialiser/deserialiser (SerDes) core has achieved 32Gbps performance while withstanding up to 40dB of channel loss. According to the company, this latest SerDes core redefines the data-rate feasibility of chip-to-chip portside and backplane interfaces.
Microgen Systems has announced that vibration energy-harvesting Bolt power cells enabled a live wireless sensor network using Linear Technology’s Dust Networks LTC5800-IPM Smartmesh IP mote-on-chip device at the Sensors Expo and Conference in Rosemont, Illinois, in June 2013. The mote was powered by Microgen’s piezoelectric micro-electromechanical system (piezo-MEMS) vibrational energy harvester or micro-power generator technology.
National Instruments (NI) has introduced 10 pieces of application intellectual property (IP) that enable engineers and scientists to use the Labview system design software to build their own custom radio-frequency (RF) instruments.
