In recent years semiconductor process technology has progressed to the point where FPGAs can be installed in both product prototypes and mass produced products, thanks to higher capacities and lower prices. In particular, we are now seeing many cases where FPGAs are adopted in products that are produced at low volumes and products where there is a need for long-term supply, and the demand to install a full-scale graphics sub-system on these FPGAs is growing every year.

The DMP IP core supports various industry standard graphical API specifications that have been established by the Khronos Group. It also complies with industry-standard SoC bus specifications such as OCP and AMBA.
SoCs for portable devices impose strict cost requirements. (SoC stands for“System on Chip.”) The DMP IP core provides the smallest gate size of its class available in the embedded industry, which contributes to the development of lower cost SoCs.
The DMP IP core does not just have excellent graphical processing performance, but it boosts the industry’s highest level of processing performance per unit area of silicon. This delivers efficient graphical rendering at lower silicon cost.
There are various specifications required for graphics for portable devices. The DMP IP core can be customized flexibly in accordance with your demands, in terms of both software and hardware. IP core customization is supported by DMP’s industry-leading development and testing environment.
PICA®200 for FGPA is an IP graphics core that has been optimized for FPGAs. The glass cockpits of modern airplanes use many LCD displays, and including PICA200 for FGPA makes it possible to improve visual clarity by displaying information such as instrument data, flight course data and weather information in a way that is both more graphics intensive and more solid.
The PICA200 for FGPA can deliver stable long-term supply for clinical situations where advanced medical imaging devices, such as endoscopes and various other medical imaging diagnostic devices, come into play. The PICA200 for FGPA can be used to create three dimensional images of parts inside the human body that cannot normally be viewed, in a way that is both faster and more precise than previous methods, so that these images can be utilized as a source of useful visual information.
In recent years, captions (including text and icons) have been widely used in video production by broadcasters, including terrestrial, satellite and cable television stations. The PICA200 for FGPA is a graphics IP core that has been optimized for FPGAs in order to bring out more visually dramatic effects by converting these captions to 3D images.
