Mali Driver Development Kit

The Mali Driver Development Kits (DDK) work alongside GPU products belonging to the Valhall and Bifrost architecture families of GPUs. Mali DDKs support the most common graphics and compute APIs under Linux and Android operating systems. The DDK products can be used on their own, or combined together to provide support for multiple APIs. Based on the capabilities of the GPU, the DDKs enable the APIs listed below.
