Emulator for OpenGL ES 2.0, 3.0, 3.1 and 3.2
Develop applications for the next generation graphics API
The OpenGL® ES Emulator is a library that maps OpenGL ES 3.2 API calls to the OpenGL API. By running on a standard PC, the emulator helps software development and testing of next generation OpenGL ES 3.2 applications since no embedded platform is required. The emulator requires a graphics card that supports at least OpenGL 4.3.
Features and benefits
- OpenGL ES 3.2 Emulation
High Performance OpenGL ES 3.2 Emulation accelerated by desktop GPU capable of OpenGL 4.3. Support for OpenGL ES features such as transform feedback, multiple render targets, instancing and more
- Tutorial Examples
Example applications to demonstrate ease of use

END USER LICENCE AGREEMENT FOR MALI OPENGL ES EMULATORS THIS END USER LICENCE AGREEMENT ("LICENCE") IS A LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU (EITHER A SINGLE INDIVIDUAL, OR SINGLE LEGAL ENTITY) AND ARM LIMITED ("ARM") FOR THE USE OF THE DELIVERABLES ACCOMPANYING THIS LICENCE. ARM IS ONLY WILLING TO LICENSE THE DELIVERABLES TO YOU ON CONDITION THAT YOU ACCEPT ALL OF THE TERMS IN THIS LICENCE. BY CLICKING "I AGREE" OR BY INSTALLING OR OTHERWISE USING OR COPYING THE DELIVERABLES YOU INDICATE THAT YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ALL THE TERMS OF THIS LICENCE. 1. DEFINITIONS. "Authorised Purpose" means the internal use of the Deliverables to simulate OpenGL ES graphics applications and shader programs on desktop PCs. "Deliverables" means the software binaries accompanying this Licence, and any printed, electronic or online documentation supplied with it, in all cases relating to the Mali OpenGL ES Emulators. "Input" means all suggestions, comments, feedback, ideas, or know-how (whether in oral or written form) provided by you to ARM under this Licence and in connection with the Deliverables. "Subsidiary" means any company the majority of whose voting shares is now or hereafter owned or controlled, directly or indirectly, by ARM.
