Overview

The DCD’s DBLCD32 core is a fully configurable, universal LCD/TFT display controller. It supports a wide range of resolution and enables both, horizontal and vertical synchronization parameters setup. The display’s pixel clock can be generated by an internal pixel clock divider based on the bus clock, or delivered to the core by a dedicated pin. Additionally there is a possibility of using an externally generated pixel clock. Polarization of the generated pixel clock, as well as synchronization signals, is configurable. The DBLCD32 has a DMA capable master interface, which can be used to access a framebuffer placed directly in a system memory. Embedded DMA controller has configurable FIFO to store pixels data, which increases system throughput and performance. Transmission on the master interface is burst oriented and there is a possibility of defining the burst size limit. Data fetched by the DMA interface can be translated to 24-bits RGB signals, depending on the selected color mode.
