The Arm Mali-DP550 is designed to provide a low cost, area efficient display solution for panels up to 1080p. Developed to target a wide range of use cases from mobile to industrial and IoT, the Mali-DP550 provides significant power reductions compared to its predecessor and is pre-optimised to work seamlessly with the Mali Multimedia Suite of Video and Graphics processors.
Building on the feature set of the Arm Mali-DP500, the Mali-DP550 display processor offers enhanced capabilities for offloading tasks such as composition, scaling, rotation and image post-processing from the GPU in order to save power. Within a very small silicon area and at low energy consumption, the Mali-DP550 adds support for up to seven display layer composition and includes energy efficient technologies such as AFBC. In addition, its co-processor interface enables third parties to incorporate their own display IP in the Mali-DP550 display pipeline.
- Low cost display processor for 720p and 1080p panels
- Targeting mobile and non-mobile (e.g. Industrial, IoT) applications
- Offloads complex presentation functions from the CPU, GPU and VPU
- Enables efficient composition of up to seven display layers.
- Display timing compatible with CEA, HDMI, MIPI, and VESA.
- Co-processor interface enables further differentiation (for example, CABC, HDR, and LABC).
