logiREF-ZGPU-ZC706 is the pre-verified logicBRICKS reference design that
showcases the complete Xylon 2D graphics acceleration and the world's fastest 3D graphics engine (GPU) for programmable logic running on the Xilinx® Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC ZC706 Evaluation
Kit. The design is implemented by Xylon logicBRICKS IP cores.
The design provides system designers with everything they need to develop graphics on a display connected to the ZC706 kit. Design deliverables
include evaluation logicBRICKS IP cores and HW design files
prepared for Xilinx Vivado® Design Suite, complete Linux OS
image, software drivers, demo applications and documentation.
The World's Fastest 3D Graphics Engine for Programmable Logic
3D graphics demos rendered by
Xylon's logi3D Scalable 3D Graphics Accelerator IP core running on the
Xilinx® Zynq-7000 ZC706 Evaluation Kit and Linux OS. The logi3D is
designed to support the OpenGL® ES 1.1 API and run on the Xilinx
Zynq®-7000 AP SoC.
Product is based on a
published Khronos specification, and is expected to pass the Khronos
Conformance Testing Process. Current conformance status can be found at
The evaluation hardware design is highly customizable. logicBRICKS IP
cores can be setup through the Vivado IP Integrator (IPI) GUI
parametrization to support only required graphics features; from small
and efficient display control that uses just a fraction of programmable
logic in the smallest Z-7010 Zynq-7000 AP SoC device, up to the full 3D accelerated
Provided software drivers include standard Linux FrameBuffer driver and the OpenGL® ES* 1.1 API. The latest release of the reference design includes the XylonQPA software plug-in for Qt 5.x, which works with the logiBITBLT
2D graphics accelerator IP. The XylonQPA enables software programmers to use the Qt cross-platform application
framework in familiar ways and to design HMIs in the same way as with
any SoC. XylonQPA supported 2D graphics acceleration off-loads the processing system for other system tasks and enables faster HMIs on the Zynq-7000 AP SoC.
logicBRICKS graphics IP cores work with other popular operating systems
running on the Zynq-7000 AP SoC: QNX®, Android™ and Microsoft® Windows®
Embedded Compact. A number of Xilinx partners provide different OS
Board Support Packages (BSP) with included logicBRICKS support.
Standard software drivers enable software developers to work
fast and efficiently with popular graphic libraries, widget toolkits
and familiar development tools. Xylon also supplies bare-metal software
drivers for non-OS use.
