I love it when cool new Zynq-based designs just drop out of the sky. Here’s a very short video just posted on YouTube from ELMG Digital Power in New Zealand demonstrating a graphical vehicle dashboard. The ELMG demo runs on a Zynq-based Avnet MicroZed plugged into an I/O carrier card:
The really interesting part of this demo is the international array of Zynq-compatible software components ELMG used to create this demo:
- The automotive dash cluster is built with QT Graphics headquartered in Helsinki.
- The graphics control IP is programmed from Xylon’s LogicBricks LCD controller and 2D GPU. Xylon is in Croatia.
- The dash widgets are based on code from 3electrons.com in Poland.
- The system runs ubuntu linux from, well, cyberspace.
