The Display Interface module is a core module that provides the interface directly to an LCD module, or through and external triple DAC or HDMI transmitter, directly to any standard video display. Small and efficient and simple to use interfaces and driver model make it easier than ever to get output from your FPGA to the screen.
The core design can be integrated and tested using the following steps: 1. Create buffers/RAMs in the target device family for the line buffers and add them to the generic memory vhd file. Same for the cursor cache if needed. 2. Instantiate the core into the FPGA design connecting to specific Qsys Avalon interfaces depending on functions needed and to the video interface/display bus. 3. If needed adjust output video HW bus to your display's needs. The output from the core can easily manipulated into various interface standards by the end developer. Custom interfaces can be developed by Tectonics. Please email email@example.com with questions. 3. Set the generics on the core file according to functions needed/used. 4. import the graphics library files into the nios SW project 5. Initialize a frame buffer using the library 6. Initialize a font and then use printf() function to print to the frame buffer 7. Add other calls from the library as needed.
