Introduction to Mobile Graphics
Our 2020 edition of Introduction to Mobile Graphics explains mobile graphics technologies and their architectures, the PowerVR framework for development, texturing, transformations and example shader code including lighting models. There is also an introduction to Vulkan. A range of hardware platforms are supported: the Simulator, Acer Chromebook, and the Beagle Bone Black.
The Beagle Bone Black is one of the most common development boards on the market today. Millions have been sold and users range from Hobbyists to Students to Industrial Developers. The TI Sitara SoC at the heart of this board contains an Imagination SX530 GPU. “Fun with Beagle: Exploring the GPU” shows that there is more you can do with this GPU than just graphics!
