Santa Clara, USA – October 22nd, 2012 - Evatronix SA, provider of the high performance display processor for mobile applications, PANTA DP20, announced today a demonstration of capabilities of the successor to the DP20 design, the PANTA DP30 IP. The IP prototype will enable ARM TechCon attendees to experience the improvement in IP performance and find out the additional benefits over the current-gen product.
“The PANTA DP30 prototype is our vision for the evolution of display processors and the demonstration of their benefits when matched with the GPU,” said Marcin Zys, Multimedia IP Product Line Manager at Evatronix. “We’ve introduced support for even more technologies from ARM, the leading name in the mobile CPU and GPU market, so that users can maximize their SoC performance and keep the power level at the minimum.”
The PANTA DP30 is targeted especially for mobile applications in which the GPU is under heavy computing load. Execution of such operations like scaling, rotation and color space conversion within the PANTA DP30 processor eases the GPU load significantly and contributes to lower power requirements. The PANTA DP30 implements the AMBA AXI4 system bus interface with long bursts and outstanding transactions for compatibility with latest ARM CPUs, GPUs and video decoders.
The most significant difference to the PANTA DP20 is the presence of the PANTA CP10 – a dedicated coprocessor that enables arbitrary scaling of video and graphics layers. Depending on the application, user can integrate 0, 1 or 2 instances of the PANTA CP10 within the PANTA DP30-enabled SoC. The implementation of a DMA module with the AMBA AXI4 write interface offers new possibilities for development of video subsystems based on the Evatronix PANTA IP family.
