D/AVE 2D (http://tes-dst.com/tes-dst/index.php/graphics-rendering/dave-2d?innerpage_style=1) is a Hardware IP Core, optimized for easy integration into FPGAs and ASICs. Focus of D/AVE 2D is to provide cost efficient high quality vector graphics with subpixel processing and an extended anti-aliasing functionality. D/AVE 2D has been developed for all applications that benefit from high quality vector graphics. Examples are navigation, dashboard and OSDs in the automotive and aviation area as well as modern Smart-Phone like HMIs in consumer, test&measurement and industrial applications.


    Device Utilization and Performance

    D/AVE 2D: 10k LEs D/AVE 2D-Lite: 6k LEs (at about 2.5 times lower performance than D/AVE 2D)
