My dream (because I can't tell how it can be done) is that we can one day develop something which just needs compatible = img,530 or imp,540 or img,544. Then we can't make the number clocks depend on the implementation any more.

Do we already have an idea if we can get into contact and get help from ImgTec for this topic or if we have to live with what we have?

BR and thanks,
