Imagination META

The META is a 32-bit multithreaded microprocessor developed by Metagence Technologies Division from Imagination Technologies1 First version of META were developed in 2001 as META-1 multithreaded DSP core aimed for audio, radio and video processing2 META HTP core family was announced in 2007 and is based on META-2 architecture34

META family consists of Meta HTP applications processors 400–700 MHz on 65L - 65G process3, META MTP Embedded Processors and Meta LTP Embedded Microcontrollers5

It is supported by the Linux kernel as of version 39678
