Linux OS - Graphics on Zynq SoC

A comprehensive logicBRICKS software support for open-source Linux operating system enables software designers to use graphics logicBRICKS IP cores with no need to know anything about the underlaying hardware (IP cores) in Xilinx® Zynq™-7000 All Programmable SoC or FPGA device.

Drivers available from Xylon

- Standard Linux Framebuffer driver
- logiCVC-ML Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) Driver
- 2D Graphics Acceleration Qt 5.4 Plugin
- Direct Frame Buffer (DirectFB) library (DEPRECATED!)
- OpenGL ES 1.1* API
