D/AVE HD - 2D/3D graphics rendering IP core family for FPGAs and ASICs

The D/AVE HD GPU family is an evolution of the D/AVE 2D family supporting high quality 2D rendering and fixed function 3D rendering for displays up to 4K x 4K. Targeting modern graphics applications on high resolution displays in the Industrial, Medical, Military, Avionics, Automotive and Consumer
markets, D/AVE HD is designed to be fast with powerful functionality. In addition, it is configurable and optimizable regarding size and footprint. The footprint optimized variants are the ideal choice e.g. for feature rich wearables, smart watches and IoT devices with animated 2D and 3D GUIs, while the fully featured variants target performance demanding graphics in professional and high-end consumer electronics applications.

D/AVE HD is available for both FPGA and ASIC integration with high customizability and scalability and
already silicon proven e.g. in automotive products.
