Transferring LUT / processing functionality from standard applets into VAs

  • Hi there,


    currently I am working with a customer who basically already solved some applications using microEnable IV AD4. Now he wants to switch to Marathon VCL with aditional functionallity, which is why we are planning to implement a VA for him.

    Of course we want to give him as much look and feel as he is used to from the standard applet (MediumLineRGB) and while I was comparing our specification with the existing applet I came up with some "questionmarks".


    The main question which popped up is how I can implement the LUT and "Processing" operator in an Applet so that the user (at best) does not feel a difference. What is the best way to do it? Can it be solved using VA?



    best regards,

    Theo

  • Hi Theo,

    unfortunatly it's not that easy to solve this problem. The Processing Module in our Standard Applets actually is simply a lookup table. The values for these lookup-table are calculated in software and than written to the FPGA.


    So, what you need to do than would be giving the customer a Routine that he can use to load the values accordingly.

    If you want I think we can help you with that.


    Best regards,

  • Thanks Björn,


    thats what I thought. I will implement the LUTs only as the customer is ok with dealing with that via software.
