Mali Display Processors

The Mali display IP offers an extensive range of functionality, including composition, rotation and scaling, within a very small die area.

Mali Display Processors (DPU) are a family of products optimized to process tasks offloaded from the GPU, and with support for Arm Frame Buffer Compression (AFBC) they are able to considerably lower system-wide power consumption. The Komeda architecture brings significant improvements to both mainstream and premium devices. Mali-D77 is the premium level display IP which solves complex scenes and drives displays for resolutions up to 4K at 120FPS.

With compatibility for Arm TrustZone technology, Mali display technologies secure the display path for use cases such as mobile payment and video playback. Crucially, when a Mali display processor is implemented in a complete Arm-based SoC, the Android driver for each processor will, by design, work together extremely efficiently; this highly optimized multimedia software  significantly reduces implementation effort while at the same time delivering best in class performance and maximized power efficiency.

As resolutions and display quality increase, display processing becomes even more important in a media system. Having a dedicated display processor that not only controls output to the screen but also enables the GPU to offload basic tasks such as multi-layer composition or image post-processing to a dedicated processor improves visual quality and reduces overall SoC power consumption. Arm Mali Display Processors are designed with three key benefits in mind: lowering system bandwidth, simplifying software integration and offering a secure display path.
