IS it possible to connect VGA cable to Zynq Ultrascale+ mpsoc?

Hi All,

i am planning to create a custom board based on Zynq UltraSclae+ MPSoc device.

This device has DisplayPort controller but i dont want to use DisplayPort i want to use VGA cable. As the monitor i am going to use has only VGA port available.

Is there any way i can design the hardware to support VGA port instead of Display port.

I dont want to use any converter please advice if it's possible.

@vickyisro 

Is it possible? Yes.  You will likely need to use a video encode chip on the custom board to convert from digital video into analog VGA.

Hi @vickyisro 

The other solution would be to not use thd Displayport controller and create your own logic to create a VGA controller in the PL

@tedbooth

Thanx for replying..

Is there any such chip available in MIL GRADE packaging

 

 

@florentw 

Will it also be able to redirect the out put of linux OS runing on ARM processor or just the stuffs in FPGA.

HI @vickyisro 

If you use a DMA you wil be able to move data from PS to PL

Do you have any link to some sample design which displays the linux os display via PL. From any port whether Display or HDMi i. Ijust want to see how it will be designed .

HI @vickyisro 

You can check the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC Base TRD 2020.1 (ZCU102) or the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC VCU TRD 2020.1 (ZCU106).
