Some dramatic video showing 30x speedup for 2Dgraphics on Xilinx Zynq SoC using Xylon LogicBRICKS IP

Many displays on instruments and other industrial equipment can benefit from a 2D speedup. The Xylon LogicBRICKS IP core collection includes a Bit Blt accelerator (called the Xylon LogiBITBLT) for 2D graphics. It delivers roughly 30x display update acceleration while reducing the Zynq SoC’s ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore CPU usage by approximately 20x.


Below is a short 1.5-minute video with two demos of the Xylon LogiBITBLT. The first shows a waveform update, much like what you’d see on a digital oscilloscope. Note the much faster the update rate when using the 2D accelerator. The second demo shows the improvement in frame update rate for a short video.





This demo is running on a Xilinx ZC702 Zynq SoC Evaluation Kit. The OS is Microsoft Windows Embedded Compact 7.
