Open source HD video project on Digilent board powered by Xilinx FPGA

Digilent High Definition Video Platform: Showcased in International Conference

Nexys Video FPGA BoardIn December 2015, we invited Mr. Michael Field (who is one of our favorite people from the Forum) to showcase his high-definition video applications on Nexys Video and Genesys 2 at the International Conference on Field-Programmable Technology (ICFPT) held in New Zealand. ICFPT is a premier conference in the Asia-Pacific region on field-programmable technology. We were glad that Michael could share his fabulous work with other experts in the field. His project is detailed below!

Mandelbrot set on Genesys 2

The Mandelbrot set is well-known for fractal geometry. Mike implemented the Mandelbrot sets on the Genesys 2 to create real-time images, and shared the project in Digilent Forum Project Vault . 

Genesys 2

The project uses about 100,000 flip-flops, 150,000 Look-Up Tables (LUTs), and 640 Digital Signal Processing (DSP) slices on Xilinx Kintex 7 FPGA. In this project, there isn’t any frame buffer, meaning that each pixel is recalculated every time. Additionally, Mike used...
