Xilinx Making Immersive 3D and 4K2K Displays Possible with 7 Series FPGA System Integration
Industry's First 4K2K FPGA Implementation at CES Highlights Xilinx Design Platforms for Bringing Ultra Realistic Interactive Displays to Market.
San Jose, Calif., USA, Jan. 5, 2012
Xilinx, Inc. today introduced new 28nm Kintex-7 Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA)-based targeted reference designs and a new development baseboard for accelerating the development of next-generation, 3D and 4K2K display technologies aimed at giving consumers a rich, immersive experience. 4K2K Mosaic and HDTV-to-4K2K up-converter targeted reference designs and the new ACDC (Acquisition, Contribution, Distribution and Consumption) 1.0 Baseboard using Kintex-7 FPGAs have been jointly developed with Premier Xilinx Alliance Program member Tokyo Electron Device Ltd. (TED).
The processing performance and flexibility provided by 28nm Kintex-7 FPGAs allows manufacturers to build stunningly immersive technology into new consumer TV screens that come with features such as multiple windows/picture-in-picture, 3D graphics for games and ultra-realistic viewing that goes far beyond HDTV. By having development resources that include the baseboard, tools, IP cores, and reference designs needed to begin developing their system, manufacturers can accelerate their development of cutting-edge televisions, projectors, and monitors.
Kintex-7 FPGA System Integration for Display
The ACDC 1.0 Base Board forms the heart of Xilinx's system integration tools for developing consumer displays. Designers who are already working with 1080i or 1080P technologies can quickly migrate to 4K2K by using the Mosaic reference design and HDTV-to-4K2K up-converter included as part of the platform. The HDTV-to-4K2K up-converter also solves the content dilemma by providing a necessary tool to be able to use any standard 1080i (HD) or 1080P (Full HD) content on a rich immersive 4K2K display.
