About us

Imagination is a global technology leader whose products touch the lives of billions of people worldwide. Established in Britain in 1985, Imagination’s broad range of silicon IP (intellectual property) includes the key processing blocks needed to create SoCs (Systems on Chips) for mobile phones, mobile computers, consumer multimedia, wearables, IoT devices, automotive, networking and enterprise. Imagination IP includes solutions for graphics, video and vision processing, general processing, multi-standard communications and connectivity.

Our products touch billions of lives worldwide.

At Imagination Technologies we love engineering the AI, Graphics and Connectivity chip designs that are at the core of your favourite electronic products. What’s unique about our designs is that they’re high performance and power efficient while being squeezed into the smallest space possible. That means a no-compromise approach to making your gadgets smart and portable.

It’s this philosophy that has led to Imagination Technologies powering more than 10 billion of the world’s most iconic electronic devices; from phones to drones.

Imagination works closely with leading semiconductor companies and the consumer electronics companies responsible for many of the most iconic and culturally important products of the 21st century.
