Zagreb, Croatia, August 2, 2012 – Xylon d.o.o., a leading provider of advanced FPGA application solutions and IP cores, demonstrates 2D and 3D Graphics Processing Units (GPU) for Xilinx® Zynq™-7000 EPP based products by providing pre-verified reference designs for Xilinx Zynq-7000 ZC702 evaluation board.
The reference design includes evaluation logicBRICKS IP cores and hardware design files prepared for Xilinx Platform Studio (XPS) design suite. It also includes complete Linux OS image, software drivers, demo applications and documentation.
System designers can leverage the flexibility and scalability of logicBRICKS IP cores and software to speed up their development cycle. Software designers can develop Linux and standalone applications for their product before target hardware is available and hardware designers can customize the provided logicBRICKS designs to closely fit to their requirements.
The provided hardware logicBRICKS designs can be also used with other popular operating systems. A number of Xilinx partners who provide different OS Board Support Packages (BSP) for Xilinx ZC702 board supports Xylon logicBRICKS.
At the moment Xylon offers two reference designs for download from the company’s web:
1. logiREF-ZGPU Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) reference design demonstrates 2D and 3D logicBRICKS graphics on Xilinx ZC702 Evaluation Board with connected PC monitor. Deliverables include complete software support for Linux OS: standard FrameBuffer driver, DirectFB graphics library and full OpenGL® ES 1.1 API.
2. logiREF-ZHMI-FMC Human Machine Interface (HMI) reference design demonstrates common HMI features: video image capture, touch display control, audio and graphics display. HMI features are supported by the FMC-HMI peripheral board with an integrated high-resolution LCD display. Deliverables include Linux OS image, drivers and demos.
