Ensigma RPU Series 4 "Explorer", FloWorks, And HelloSoft
Rounding off the unveilings from Imagination's event was a trio of connectivity technologies: Ensigma for on-chip communications, FloWorks for the cloud, and HelloSoft for V.VOIP communication (Video and Voice Over IP).
Ensigma RPU Series 4 "Explorer"
The Ensigma RPU is essentially the final component of Imagination’s ideal fully-integrated SoC. It removes the need for discrete radios by providing integrated on-chip communications hardware.
The newest Ensigma RPU, the Series 4 “Explorer” offers connectivity for every 802.11 Wi-Fi standard, Bluetooth, TV, and radio. Explorer will be available in both integrated and standalone variants.
According to Imagination, FloWorks aims to offer simple APIs with shrink-wrapped support for basic services that enables devices to communicate with one another for content sharing and to easily create an ecosystem for a wide range of services including: IoT, M2M, media streaming, and subscription/transaction-based models.
Last but not least is the somewhat awkwardly-named HelloSoft, an integrated, unified voice and video communications technology. HelloSoft merits mention for its optimized media engine, which offers enhanced voice (EVQM), dynamic video quality management (DVQM), and is capable of operating on any device, regardless of platform, connection, or process.
