> 1. February 2013 Tokyo (Japan) – Xylon previews the new logicBRICKS graphics reference design for the TED inrevium Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC Extension Microcontroller Card
Xylon Japan participated at the 2013 Programmable Solutions seminar and exhibition hosted by Tokyo Electron Device Ltd. (TED). The event took a place at Tokyo Conference Center Shinagawa, and gathered several TED partners and more than 300 seminar attendees and visitors.
At this year’s exhibition Xylon debuts Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) reference design running on TED’s inrevium Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC Extension Microcontroller Card (Part Number: TB-7Z-020-EMC
). This new Xylon’s reference design will enable TED customers to evaluate and customize 2D and 3D graphic logicBRICKS IP cores and increase design efficiency by selecting off-the-shelf graphics engine for their new Xilinx® Zynq™-7000 All Programmable SoC based products.
As all other logicBRICKS reference designs
, this new design will include evaluation logicBRICKS IP cores and hardware design files prepared for Xilinx Platform Studio (XPS) design suite, a complete Linux OS image, software drivers, demo applications and documentation. It will be available for download in 1Q2013.
Besides the new reference design for the TED inrevium Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC Extension Microcontroller Card, Xylon also presented:
Graphics Engine for the ZedBoard development board from Avnet Electronics Marketing. Design deliverables include complete software support for Linux OS: FrameBuffer driver, DirectFB driver and OpenGL® ES* 1.1.
Human Machine Interface (HMI) for Xilinx ZC702 Evaluation board with the attached FMC HMI board
from Digilent. The design can be used with the Android™, Linux® and Microsoft® Windows® Embedded Compact 7 operating systems to demonstrate common HMI features like touch display and high-resolution color display output control.
The Android Board Support Package (BSP) for the Xilinx ZC702 development board is developed and maintained by Xilinx partner iVeia
. The Windows Embedded Compact 7 BSP supplies Xilinx partner Adeneo Embedded
. Both BSPs can work with Xylon logicBRICKS graphics IP cores.
* 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.
