Cost-Effective Higher Performance Graphics

Serious Gatling™ Technology is a cost-effective graphics enhancement capability for modules without dedicated graphics controllers, such as the SIM115 and SIM231.  It enables the following key performance elements:

  • Lower DRAM bus overhead — less than 17% on the SIM231 in 16 bit color mode compared to nearly 45% on the SIM225
  • 24bit (16 million) color support
  • Removes the “bus lockout” software challenge related to Direct Drive solutions
  • Enables broader LCD timing support for more flexible LCD selection
