logiREF-ZGPU-ZC706 2D & 3D GPU for the ZC706 Board

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 www.khronos.org/conformance.



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 graphics engine.

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.
