D/AVE HD (http://tes-dst.com/tes-dst/index.php/graphics-rendering/dave-hd?innerpage_style=1) is an evolution in the D/AVE family supporting high quality 2D rendering and basic 3D rendering for displays up to 4K x 4K. Targeting modern graphics applications on high resolution displays in the industrial, test&measurement, medical, military, avionics, automotive and consumer markets, D/AVE HD is designed to be fast with powerful functionality and at the same time optimized regarding size and footprint. D/AVE HD is available for both FPGA and ASIC integration with high customizability as well as scalability and a peak performance between 1 and 16 pixels per clock cycle. D/AVE HD offers several enhancements over the previous D/AVE 2D version as related to various blit operations, cache enhancements, texture pre-fetch, power management and system functionality.


    Device Utilization and Performance

    50k LEs fully featured 30k LEs without OpenVG support (option) Performance up to 16 pixels per cycle. Typically 4 times faster than D/AVE 2D
