Imagination Technologies is back on track, and focussing on intellectual property licencing, according to CEO Andrew Heath.
The UK firm, once known as VideoLogic, is behind two well-known intellectual property (IP) brands: PowerVR graphics processors, which is the dominant GPU architecture in high-end mobile phones, and MIPS RISC processing cores – after buying MIPS four years ago. The third arm of its now all-IP business is the Ensigma brand of radio/wireless IP which includes cores for mobile Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
Businesses that have been sold during restructuring, or are being sold, include Pure DAB radios, Imagination’s VoIP business, its music subscription service, and its SoC design services company IMGworks.
