Summary

POLLUX is the 3rd generation chip adopting MagicEyes' VRender Technology.
Its high performance and low power consumption architecture realize a big
differentiation in developing richer-end user applications such as 2D/3D Car
Navigation System, dual display POS System, High resolution & various visual
effective Display System and convergence Handheld products such as Multimedia
Toy, MP4 Player, low-end PMP, and etc.

POLLUX, with its 533MHz ARM926EJ and 3D graphics engine, enables to implement
high-end application such as navigation device improving from 2D graphics to 3D
in progress.

POLLUX 3D graphics engine can be used not only rendering 3D contents such as 3D
map but also various color LCD terminal application's needs on splendid user
interface and variety of display function through its various visual effects.

POLLUX is a SoC including ARM926EJ 32bit CPU, 3D Graphics Accelerator, NTSC/PAL
Encoder with video DAC and various interfaces like USB 2.0, 4ch UART, 2ch SD/MMC, I2C.

The embedded 3D Graphics engine enables high performance 3D graphics and display
functions without sacrificing host CPU power to reserve most CPU power to
other application software.

POLLUX provides the powerful display unit enabling simultaneous multilayer display on digital convergence system:

  • Displays 3 layers simultanously such as background, Cursor, 3D graphics
  • Enables PIP function by hardwired NTSC PAL encoder with Video DAC
  • Supports two difference display(1 digital & 1 analog) simultaneously

Pollux gives designers flexibility in developing system with enough CPU horse
power, powerful 3D performance, multi-layering display togather with lots of
I/O interfaces to realize competitiveness portable/handheld/embedded products.
