MIPS Technologies and Sigma Designs Enable Android on HD Screens

MIPS Technologies and Sigma Designs have teamed together to bring the full high-definition (HD) experience to the Android platform. To enable Android to run on an HD screen rather than the small screen of a mobile handset, Sigma and MIPS enhanced the Android libraries and the MIPS architecture. Sigma Designs extended libraries within Android to support hardware graphics acceleration and hardware decoding to take advantage of their SoC capabilities for HD. MIPS Technologies is also making performance optimizations specifically for the MIPS32 architecture. This optimized code will be available in the future as part of the publicly-available Android on MIPS code.
