SiliconArts provides real-time Ray-tracing intellectual property (IP) RayCore graphics processing unit (GPU) IP to NewGenGraphics.

SiliconArts, a fabless semiconductor company, announced on Sept. 22 that it signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with NewGenGraphics, an affiliate of U.S. technology innovation startup Pixilica, for business cooperation.

Accordingly, SiliconArts provides real-time Ray-tracing intellectual property (IP) RayCore graphics processing unit (GPU) IP to NewGenGraphics.

NewGenGraphics will be responsible for developing advanced graphics processing architectures by applying licensed raycore and producing field programmable gate array (FPGA) and embedded solutions and global sales.

It is going to expand the range of products that are applied with SiliconArt's real-time ray tracing technology from current PC and mobile graphics to FPGA and embedded fields.

Based on this, NewGenGraphics is planning to introduce solutions that apply real-time ray-tracing GPU.

Yoon Hyung-min, CEO of SiliconArts, said, "We are planning to expand the coverage of real-time ray tracing GPU IP raycore by conducting sales activities in the U.S., China, and Taiwan and diversify our sales areas."
