SimpleVOut -- A Simple FPGA Core for Creating VGA/DVI/HDMI/OpenLDI Signals ========================================================================== SimpleVOut (SVO) is a simple set of FPGA cores for creating video signals in various formats. The cores connect using AXI-streams. Most configurations (resolution, framerate, colordepth, etc.) are set at compile-time using Verilog parameters. See svo_defines.vh for details on those parameters.

This directory contains: svosrc/ This is the actual SVO sourcecode. If you use SVO simply copy this directory into your project. vivado_ip/ An example Vivado IP wrapper (simplehdmi) for SVO. This IP provides a video DMA and a simple terminal overlay and creates DVI/HDMI signals. zybo_vl/ An example design using SVO for the Zybo Board (Xilinx Vivado). This example is written in Verilog HDL. zybo_bd/ An example Vivado block-design using the IPs from vivado_ip/. The svosrc/ directory contains the following cores for outputing video streams in different formats (see zybo_vl/system.v for usage examples): svo_enc.v The video "encoder". Other frameworks call this component a video timings generator. The output of this core can be fed directly into a DAC to create a VGA signal. svo_openldi.v This takes the svo_enc-output and creates an OpenLDI (aka LVDS) video signal. svo_tmds.v This takes the svo_enc-output and creates a DVI/HDMI video signal. The following cores can be used to create video streams: svo_tcard.v This core generates a static test card. svo_pong.v A little pong game. This is implemented as video overlay, so it is perfect as an easter-egg for your design. svo_term.v A text terminal. Only stores the last N (default=2048) characters and scrolls when running out of character memory. Good for dislaying debug information (such as early boot messages). svo_vdma.v A video DMA controller. Has a read-only AXI4 master interface to access the video memory. See also svo_utils.v for various helpers for combining video streams. The svo_pong core is in fact a collection of various cores generating video overlays that are combined using the helper modules from svo_utils.v. So have a look at svo_pong.v for usage examples for the stuff in svo_utils.v.
