LG Electronics has licensed the next generation of ARM Cortex-A50 series of central processing unit (CPU) solutions and the ARM Mali graphics processing units (GPUs).

LG has previously used both Cortex processors and Mali GPUs in its system-on-chip (SoC) technology. The new agreement will enable the South Korean firm to offer a wider range of “high-performance SoCs.”

Launched in October, the Cortex-A50 family bridges the performance requirements of next-generation 32-bit and 64-bit applications.

“The close interaction between the CPU and GPU becomes increasingly important as solutions transition between the 32-bit and 64-bit world,” said Bo-ik Sohn, senior vice president, LG Electronics. “Being able to implement Full Profile GPU Compute in conjunction with ARM big.LITTLE processing configurations will be a key driver to the overall performance and capabilities of our devices.”
