Acting in partnership, Altera and TES Electronic Solutions have created an FPGA-based PCI graphics intellectual property (IP) core for automotive and industrial display applications. Dubbed the TE Display Controller/Accelerated Vector Engine (D/AVE) PCI IP, the core allows systems designers to quickly integrate specific graphics functions, i.e., thin film transistor pixel rendering, into all of Altera’s low-cost Cyclone and high-end Stratix series FPGAs. The D/AVE generates vector graphics with sub-pixel processing and extended anti-aliasing functionality. It connects via the PCI interface and provides a unique rendering engine as the main component for system integration at the hardware level. Applications include navigation, dashboard, and on-system displays. For further information, call ALTERA CORP., San Jose, CA. (408) 544-7000 or TES ELECTRONIC SOLUTIONS, Santa Clara, CA. (408) 980-8601.
