LCD Controller - VP14-3ATI

LCD Controller

The VP14-3ATI LCD Controller interfaces with 3ATI displays and other TFT panels requiring a small form factor. The VP14-3ATI is the ideal LCD controller for applications requiring high fidelity analog or digital video conversion, re-sizing, and frame rate conversion for resolutions up to 1920×1200.



Standard and custom video formats up to WUXGA

Converts a wide variety of video formats including RS-343, RS-170, DVI, RGBsog, RGBHV, NTSC/PAL to LVDS


Scaling, Rotating, Windowing, and Area-of-Interest Control

Video area-of-interest control, resizing, rotating, retiming, and reformatting


Single or Dual LVDS up to 165 MPixels/sec

Single or Dual LVDS (up to 165MPixels/sec) at 8 bits/color. Supports parallel video out up to 165 MPixels/sec

Embedded applications

With its low-profile design and locking high-density Hirose connectors, the VP7 is ideal for space-constrained displays

Powerful Configuration Utility

The VP14-3ATI is configured via a utility that supports in-the-field firmware, FPGA and parameter (BIOS) updates. The VP14-3ATI can be dynamically controlled over RS232, USB, or Ethernet with parameters stored in non-volatile memory to retain desired settings. Commands support a multi-mode approach to define:

  • 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
VP14 Configuration Utility Software
VP14 Input Mode Setup

Automatic Video Input Mode Detection

Modes define both the electrical form (RGB, DVI, etc) and the timing of a video input. With fully customizable input mode definitions for each video input, programmable panel power sequences, full control of window size and location within the output area-of-interest, and programmable output timing parameters, you can configure the VP14-3ATI for your application.

  • Each video input can be configured with multiple modes per electrical format (such as VGA, SVGA, XGA, WXGA modes on the RGB interface).
  • When a given electrical format is selected, such as RGB, the VP14-3ATI can automatically detect the pre-programmed, prioritized input modes and convert the modes to a desired output mode.
  • If valid video is not detected per that mode definition, the VP14-3ATI can be programmed to drive a specific flood field.
VP14 Video Processing Features

Scaling, Windowing, and Area-of-Interest Control

  • Independent horizontal and vertical scaling
  • Programmable input area-of-interest is mapped to user-defined area within the output resolution

Rotate video, flip left to right or top to bottom

The VP14-3ATI supports video rotation (in 90 degree increments) for applications with sideways mounted displays, cameras, or other video sources. Video can also be flipped from top to bottom or left to right for specialty applications.
