HSA Foundation has been on quite a roll lately. It managed to gather quite a few names to back its cause and today Sony, ST-Ericsson and STMicroelectronics joined the group.
The HSA Foundation now includes AMD, ARM, Imagination, Mediatek, Qualcomm, Samsung and Texas Instruments as "founders" and a bunch of other big names including LG Electronics, Vivante, Arteris, Codeplay and others as either promoters, supporters or contributors to the Foundation. The HSA Foundation also managed to draw a couple of big names to its "academics" group including HTHU Programming Language and System Software labs, University of Bristol, University of Edinburgh and the University of Illinois.
Today, those numbers swell to 23 as Sony, ST-Ericsson and STMicroelectronics joined up as contributors to the Foundation. Sony is obviously the biggest name today and we are quite sure that they will be able to "contribute" to the group and, of course, ST-Ericsson and STMicroelectronics will surely be a valued addition to the Foundation.
The announcement has not been officially released but those names can be clearly seen on HSA Foundation site. Interestingly enough, the Foundation is still to get its eight "founder" key member and we are quite sure that some big name will join up eventually.
