Verilog / VHDL IP Cores for SoC, ASSP, ASICs and FPGAs
Digital Blocks is a leading developer of silicon-proven semiconductor Intellectual Property (IP) cores for developers requiring best-in-class IP for Embedded Processors, Multi-Channel DMA / I3C / I2C / SPI AMBA Peripherals, LCD / OLED Display Controllers & Processors, 2D Graphics Hardware Accelerator Engines, LVDS Display Link Layer Drivers, Video Signal & Image Processing, and Low-Latency TCP/UDP/RTP Hardware Protocol Stacks..
We offer synthesizable RTL Verilog, SystemVerilog, and VHDL IP Cores for System-on-Chip (SoC) ASSP, ASIC, and FPGA designers. At Digital Blocks we are both System Architects and ASIC/FPGA designers. Thus, we provide IP Cores with deep system-level capabilities.
Building on our IP cores, Digital Blocks design services can customize the IP core to your unique requirements, as well as develop higher level system solutions encompassing FPGA, printed circuit board, and software design.
Display Controllers - LCD & OLED Panels
Digital Blocks offers the DB9000 family of programmable Display Controller IP Cores for systems requiring display panels. The DB9000 Display Controller IP supports a wide range of display resolutions and drives an image to the display via on-chip interconnect connecting to Frame Buffer Memory and a Processor. DB9000 features span from basic baseline display requirements to advanced multi-layer overlay window composition. User selection of features offers potential savings in VLSI resources and licensing costs.
2D Graphics Hardware Accelerator Engines
Digital Blocks DB91000 BitBLT Graphics Hardware Accelerator IP renders a graphics frame by generating bitmaps from commands combining existing bitmaps on and off-screen using one of 256 Raster Operations. A Bitmap Color Expansion feature provides font expansion of compressed character bitmaps. The DB9200 2D Graphics Hardware Accelerator IP adds a Line Drawing Unit for lines, polygons, circles.
Embedded Processors & Peripherals
Digital Blocks offers best-in-class 8/16-bit MCU, ARM AMBA I2C, SPI, QSPI Flash, UART, PWM, and DMA Controller Peripherals, and Intel Compatible 8255/8259/8279 Peripherals IP Cores.
Video Signal and Image Processing
Digital Blocks Video Signal & Image Processing IP Cores perform a wide range of functions, including NTSC/PAL/SECAM Video Sync Separator, Color Space Converter, Chroma Resampler, and BT.656 Encoder & Decoder.
Low-Latency, High-Speed Networking
Digital Blocks ultra-low latency UDP/IP, TCP/IP, and RTP/UDP/IP with optional MPEG TS Off-load Engine IP Cores target leading-edge network adapter cards with one or more 10/100/1000 MbE or 10/40/100 GbE network links to implement low-latency interface to network
