Addressing Techniques of Liquid Crystal Displays - download pdf or read online

Уникальный источник справочной информации, который может быть использован от начала до конца конструкторского проекта для облегчения выбора подходящей техники ЖК-адресации для данного приложения. exact reference resource that may be used from the start to finish of a layout venture to help picking out a suitable liquid crystal display addressing approach for a given program This booklet may be aimed toward layout engineers who're more likely to embed liquid crystal display drivers and controllers in lots of platforms together with structures on chip.

Read e-book online Multiple Constant Multiplication Optimizations for Field PDF

This paintings covers box programmable gate array (FPGA)-specific optimizations of circuits computing the multiplication of a variable through a number of constants, in general denoted as a number of consistent multiplication (MCM). those optimizations specialize in low source utilization yet excessive functionality. They include using quickly carry-chains in adder-based consistent multiplications together with ternary (3-input) adders in addition to the combination of look-up table-based consistent multipliers and embedded multipliers to get the optimum mapping to trendy FPGAs.

The caller must supply the buffer. • The current video state is altered during a save state operation (AL =OIH). If the requesting program needs to continue in the same video state, it can follow the save state request with an immediate call to restore the video state. • This function is supported on the VGA only.
