Framebuffer IP core for PCI-e FPGA card
Promwad FPGA team delivered one more successful project for its European customer specialized in the area of safety-critical systems for railway, transportation, and industrial applications. The customer received the updated PCI-e graphics cards product line, which now supports modern monitors & indicating devices.
Our contribution to the project was to develop a versatile frame buffer FPGA IP core and an appropriate Linux kernel framebuffer driver. Framebuffer IP core was validated on a custom Kintex-7 PCI-e board and reference Xilinx KC705 board. The IP core supports:
- The ability to connect two monitors via two independent frame buffers;
- DVI, HDMI connection interfaces;
- PCIe Gen2 8x connection method to PCs;
- 16-bit high-color, 24-bit true-color;
Our engineering team has an excellent FPGA experience to take your project at any stage. Among our partners in this field are global leaders like Xilinx, Intel/Altera, Microchip (ex. Microsemi), Lattice, Samtec, and TI. Do you need FPGA design service? Explore our portfolio in this field, and feel free to contact us with any questions.
