DP500 component

This section describes the DP500 component.

DP500 - about

This component is a model of the DP500 Display Processor, with basic support for the display and scaling engines. Connect it to a visualization component to view LCD output. This is the single display configuration of DP500. For the dual display configuration, use DP500x2.

It is a C++ component with a LISA wrapper.

It passes tests as part of a booting Android kernel and running under the control of the official DP500 drivers.


  • All RGB and YUV format parsing.
  • Color adjustment in Display Engine (DE).
  • Nearest neighbor scaling.
  • All layers.
  • Alpha blending.
  • Memory writeback.
  • Inverse gamma adjustment.
  • Basic layer (overlay) and register security semantics.


  • No support for polyphase scaling algorithm. Falls back to nearest neighbor when configured to do so.
  • No support for 3D or interlaced video.
  • No support for image enhancing functionality.
  • No colorspace conversion support.
  • No support for two plane YUV memory writeback.

DP500 - ports

This section describes the ports.

Table 4-58 DP500 ports

Name Protocol Type Description
clk_in ClockSignal Slave Master clock input, typically 24MHz, to drive pixel clock timing.
display LCD Master Connection to visualization component.
intr Signal Master Interrupt signaling from display engine.
intr_se Signal Master Interrupt signaling from scaling engine.
pvbus_m PVBus Master DMA port for video data.
pvbus_s PVBus Slave Slave port for connection for APB access.
reset_signal Signal Slave Slave port for external reset line.

DP500 - parameters

This section describes the parameters.

Table 4-59 DP500 parameters

Name Type Allowed values Default value Description
disable_snooping_dma bool true, false false Disable DMA snooping.
dual_mode bool true, false false Whether 2 display mode is supported.
force_frame_rate int 0-60 0
Model uses input clock as PXLCLOCK.
Model refreshes screen display n times per simulated second.

DP500 - registers

This component provides the registers that the Technical Reference Manual (TRM) specifies.
