Specifically targeted for TFT LCD panels and the ARM AMBA 2.0 AHB Bus, the DB9000AHB is an out-of-the-box synthesizable soft IP Core for display system designers.
GLEN ROCK, New Jersey, June 5, 2007 Digital Blocks, a leading developer of siliconproven semiconductor Intellectually Property (IP) soft cores for embedded processor and video system designers, today announces the DB9000AHB TFT LCD Controller IP Core. The DB9000AHB IP Core targets systems-on-chip (SoC) ASSP, ASIC, and FPGA designs containing ARM embedded processors and the AMBA 2.0 AHB on-chip bus, as well as other processors that support the AHB bus, and system requirements for a TFT LCD panel.
The DB9000AHB IP Core specifically and cost-effectively targets TFT LCD panels with 1 Port of 18-bit digital (6-bits/color) or 24-bit digital (8-bits/color) interface. This includes single LVDS/TMDS ports with appropriate external drivers.
The DB9000AHB IP Core contains programmable features comparable to entry-level ASSP LCD controller chips, including a color palette to reduce frame buffer space and AHB Interconnect bandwidth. With the cores wide range of programming parameters, the controller can support a wide range of LCD panel resolutions. Representative examples are as follows:
|Format || Resolution |
|Square || 240x240 |
|QVGA || 320x240 |
| 240x320 |
|16:9 Aspect Ratio || 480x272 |
|VGA || 640x480 |
|SVGA || 800x600 |
|XGA || 1024x768 |
|SXGA || 1280x1024 |
|UXGA || 1600x1200 |
|WUXGA || 1920x1200 |
Price and Availability
The DB9000AHB is available immediately in synthesizable Verilog, along with synthesis scripts, a simulation test bench with expected results, datasheet, and user manual. For further information, product evaluation, or pricing, please go to Digital Blocks at http://www.digitalblocks.com
