Digital Blocks offers the DB9000 family of programmable Display Controller & Processor IP Cores for systems requiring TFT LCD panels in their product. The DB9000 TFT LCD Controller IP is offered with a customer-specific range of features, supporting basic display applications up to optional advanced features.

The DB9000AXI TFT LCD Controller interfaces frame buffer memory and an ARM processor (or any other high-performance processor) via the AMBA 4.0 AXI bus fabric to TFT LCD panels. The DB9000AXI contains a 256 / 128 / 64 or 32-bit interface to frame buffer memory, and contains a programmable option to drive a 1 Port or 2 Port LCD Interface. We optionally offer a LVDS link layer interface. The DB9000AXI is particularly geared to drive high resolutions panels, including HD displays. Available in Verilog, the DB9000AXI IP core comes with a comprehensive simulation test suite, Synopsys Design Constraints for synthesis, and a user manual.

The DB9000AXI4 builds on the AXI version, with the addition of AXI Specification 2.0 higher burst lengths (greater than 16 beats per memory request) and Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities.

The DB9000AHB TFT LCD Controller interfaces frame buffer memory and an ARM processor via the AMBA 2.0 AHB bus fabric to TFT LCD panels. Available in Verilog, the silicon-verified DB9000AHB IP core comes with a comprehensive test suite, synthesis scripts, data sheet, and user manual.

The DB9000AHB-Lite offers a AHB-Lite Master interface to frame buffer memory, typically for a point-to-point connection to a multi-port memory controller with the AHB-Lite interface.

The DB9000OCP TFT LCD Controller interfaces frame buffer memory and a variety of processors via the Open Core Protocol Specification 2.2 interface to TFT LCD panels. Available in Verilog, the silicon-verified DB9000OCP IP core comes with a comprehensive test suite, synthesis scripts, data sheet, and user manual.

The DB9000AVLN TFT LCD Controller interfaces frame buffer memory and an Altera® NIOS® II or ARM processor via the Altera Avalon® Bus to TFT LCD panels. Available in Verilog and VHDL, the silicon-verified DB9000AVLN IP core comes with a comprehensive test suite, software driver, synthesis scripts, data sheet, and user manual.

The DB9000AVLN and DB9000AXI are Qsys System Integration Tool and AMPP Approved by Altera

The Qsys System Compliant designation by Altera certifies the DB9000AVLN IP Core contains an Avalon compatible bus interface, Qsys Integration Tool support files, push-button Qsys Integration flow, software support files, and that the DB9000AVLN is both software and hardware tested.

The DB9000AXI-UHD TFT LCD Controller builds on the AXI4 / AXI3 versions targeting 3840 x 2160 Ultra / Quad Full High Definition (UHD/QFHD) panels with added streaming video capabilities. The DB9000AXI-UHD targets applications in UHD-TV, Consumer, Education, Signage, Gaming, Broadcasting, Aerospace / Defense, Simulating & Training, Control Rooms, Tiled Video Walls, Medical, & Industrial Design.

The DB9000AXI-DCI TFT LCD targets 4K Digital Cinema TFT LCD panels with added features to meet the Digital Cinema Initiative. The DB9000AXI-DCI targets both 2k and 4K Digital Cinema Display requirements, and incorporates UHD / QFHD panel resolutions.
