Use of FPGAs in electronic devices for the consumer market was almost unthinkable until recently. The consumer market's demands were just overwhelming for FPGAs in the past. Rapid technology developments have evolved FPGAs from a simple 'glue logic' to full Systems-on-Chip solutions, which increasingly finding place in digital displays and television, portable entertainment, cameras, and other consumer electronic products.
Such products include a myriad of different displays, video input types, input devices and communication interfaces. Integration of these interfaces demands highly flexible silicon components to harmonize contradictory requirements of being standard and highly configurable at the same time. Xilinx® FPGAs certainly provide that level of flexibility.

IP cores are designed for Xilinx FPGAs and provide broad feature sets applicable for development of consumer electronic products.The logicBRICKS
and fully compatible with Xilinx Platform Studio design suite.
In addition to the rich IP library, Xylon provides full turnkey design services. Xylon FPGA team is highly skilled, experienced and capable to design the most complex designs in Xilinx technology.
Xylon's logiTAP Photo Demo (photo) turns user's Secure Card (SD) directory three into a list of images organized as a scrolling stripe of thumbnails shown on the LCD left side. The thumbnails can be scrolled fast up and down, selected (touch display) and displayed in a full LCD display's resolution.
The demo showcases GUI system rendered by the Xilinx MicroBlaze™ CPU and accelerated by Xylon logicBRICKS IP cores. The MicroBlaze handles SD card's file system, controls touch screen inputs, calculates drawing parameters for the thumbnails stripe positioning, initiates different visual effects and initializes IP cores for graphics rendering.
platform for embedded GUI developments comes preloaded with several GUI based demos. All demos are run by the same Xilinx FPGA device designed by Xilinx and Xylon IP cores. The demo FPGA design is open for evaluation and can be used as a base for further developments.
