LCD Controller Board - VP13

VP13
LCD Controller

The VP13 is the ideal LCD controller board for applications requiring simultaneous viewing of 2 or more inputs. Two input channels are standard, and up to 2 additional channels can be supported via input mezzanine boards. Each input can be placed in one or more windows within the output active area.

Supported inputs include DVI, RGB, component, composite and many specialty video formats. DisplayPort and Dual DVI inputs are options. Supported outputs include LVDS, parallel RGB, and Single Link DVI.

Video Conversion and Synchronization

  • Digitization of computer-generated analog RGB video sources with separate syncs or sync-on-green, non-interlaced and interlaced
  • DVI (TMDS) inputs
  • Digitization and de-interlacing of consumer video formats, including NTSC and PAL Composite, S-Video, and Component Video,
  • Custom video and specialty formats such as RS-343, RS-170, and STANAG
  • Incoming video gain and offset adjustments
  • Fine phase clock adjustment for pixel sampling
  • Per window YUV and RGB colorspace adjustments
  • Free-running output or genlocked to an input channel

Powerful Configuration Utility

The VP13 is configured via a utility that supports in-the-field firmware, FPGA and parameter (BIOS) updates. The VP13 can be dynamically controlled over RS232, USB, or Ethernet with parameters stored in non-volatile memory to retain desired settings.  VP13 Configure supports the setup of:

 

  • A prioritized list of all applicable video input modes that can be automatically detected
  • Mode-independent parameters, such as scaled (output) area-of-interest and location within output resolution
  • Synchronization method
  • Sequences for power up, loss of video and video detection

VP13 LCD Controller Features

Scaling, Windowing, and Area-of-Interest Control

  • Unlimited, independent horizontal and vertical scaling
  • Programmable window size and position within a larger output resolution for each input video mode

Rotate video, flip left to right or top to bottom

  • Image can be reversed left to right and flipped top to bottom
  • Image can be rotated 90, 180, or 270 degrees

Optional keying with blending

An optional keying block supports RGB-keyed alpha blend and other techniques between a key plane and the background plane to form the visual plane. Keying is performed on the foreground layer, with programmable foreground and background alpha values for outside the key area, when key=true, and when key=false)

Multi Mode Window - VP13

Automatic Video Input Mode Detection

To support (2) standard input channels, multiple input types per channel, and multiple windows in an embedded application, the VP13 offers a comprehensive approach for automatic detection, conversion, and windowing of many video formats.  Each input channel can have multiple, prioritized video input modes associated with it.  A mode consists of the input type (DVI, VGA. CVBS, etc), video timing, and associated window parameters.

Each input channel has a mode selection subsystem to scan for defined modes per a user-defined methodology. The VP13 can scan defined modes associated with a specific input type (such as VGA), all input types on that channel, or a specific mode identifier.  At power up, each channel’s mode selection subsystem initiates an automated scan. Once a mode is matched (either exactly or within pre-defined limits), that video input is displayed in its window(s) per the mode’s associated window parameters (input area-of-interest, window size, window location).
