Brass Roots unveils Gibralter™ IP Core

Today Brass Roots Technologies unveiled an advanced video / graphics processing architecture. The Gibraltar™ Processing architecture offers real-time conversion of high-bandwidth video / graphics data into accurate gray-scale weighted and multi-toned Bit Planes optimized for PWM-based display technologies. The configurable firmware IP core is optimized for the latest generation of programmable devices, such as Xilinx® 7 Series FPGAs. Companion Gibraltar™ Development Tools used to create custom sequences tailored for specific applications incorporate advanced artifact mitigation as well as quantitative evaluation using metrics accurately calibrated to the human visual system. 

Wayne Reynolds, VP of Business Development, said "Gibraltar™ marks a major advancement in the availability of a flexible, high-performance PWM processing solution for researchers and product developers. Designed from the ground-up as a clean-sheet and streamlined processing architecture optimized for performance, Gibraltar™ offers tremendous sustained I/O bandwidth capabilities to drive even the fastest PWM-based display technologies at maximum data rates and the flexibility to support a wide range of advanced applications. Custom implementations of the Gibraltar™ IP Core are now in production in branded digital projection products and are already having a profound effect on high-performance segments of the market. We expect that trend to continue as more developers become aware of the availability and benefits of the Gibraltar™ PWM Processing architecture for specialized application development."
