"We are accelerating customer time-to-market by delivering advanced digital displays solutions such as precise gamma correction, image dithering engines and color temperature adjustment compensation, dynamic false contour reduction and image dithering engines on the market's lowest-cost FPGA family," said Mr. Madhukar Dev, CEO of Tata Elxsi, a leading provider of customized design solutions. "Not only does this accelerate customer time-to-market at a lower cost point -- any designer using a Spartan-3-based display development board can easily evaluate these complex algorithms in minutes."

"We have targeted our digital displays solutions development to the Xilinx Spartan family of devices, which we feel best addresses the high-performance and low-cost requirements of the flat-panel television industry," said Brian Donahoe, President of DDC, a craftsman organization committed to providing best-in-class design services for the digital industry. "Customers can implement our favorite color transformation, motion artifact compensation and auto contrast, sharpness enhancement and noise reduction algorithms easily on a Spartan device to quickly deliver leading-edge image quality products to the marketplace."

"Customers are looking for solutions to implement integrated contrast and color enhancement algorithms while still maintaining flexibility to tune flat panel displays to account for regional variations in color preferences," said Michael Tusch, president and managing director of Apical Ltd., a leading provider of advanced image processing solutions. "We found the Xilinx Spartan-3 family of devices capable of supporting the high-speed parallel digital signal processing required to implement our advanced dynamic range correction algorithms, while providing the necessary programmable flexibility required for displays' color customization requirements."

Digital Displays Solutions

Xilinx partners DDC, Tata Elxsi and Apical have proven reference design offerings for both the digital display panel and the video board. These companies are all members of the Xilinx Alliance Program, which requires their solutions to pass a rigorous certification process. The fully certified digital displays and video board solutions include:
