Think Silicon NEMA GPU Series and NEMA dc are claimed to be the world’s smallest 2D/2.5D/3D GPU and display controller. They have been specifically designed for area constrained wearable devices, embedded systems and IoT platforms where power consumption and battery life is crucial while still maintaining vibrant graphics and fluid smartphone performance-like user interface performance. The NEMA GPU Series is what Think Silicon claims to be the only GPU which works with SoCs sporting a 32-bit MCU such as the ARM Cortex-M by utilizing the MCU by just 3-4%. Think Silicon's GPU for Embedded silicon footprint can be of 0.1mm2 @ 28nm, has leakage power GPU consumption of 0.07mW. Implementing Think Silicon’s patented compression technologies (TSFBc and TSTXc) limits memory power consumption to just 0.03mW (in DDR-less systems). With Think Silicon’s proprietary graphics API NEMA|GFX and the GUI Developer Toolkit NEMA|GUI, developers can use these tools provided by Think Silicon to create their individual Graphical User Interface in a fraction of time. Tools and the GPU Bitstream (NEMA|Bits) are available for free to download at http://think-silicon.com
