Using FPGAs to Render Graphics and Drive LCD Interfaces
This paper describes the use of FPGAs to add a LCD and GUI display to any embedded system. Unlike fixed processor device implementations, this approach is scalable and can support any display interface. Graphics can be generated by any external processor, an embedded processor, or a hardware graphics acceleration engine integrated into the same FPGA design as the display graphics controller. The benefits of FPGA implementation and available tools and IP are described, and links to reference designs and third-party solution providers are given.
