Renesas MS7724 and DirectFB

Mar 9, 2010 8:51:45 PM

I have been working lately on a new platform for Storyboard, the Renesas MS7724 Platform.  This is a really nice platform to work with and came with an 800x480 LCD screen.  It has 2D hardware acceleration for blitting including alpha blending and color keying.  It also has multiple display layers, a camera input and onboard video decode.  It is nice to work with a platform which has some horsepower for a change.  I also liked the fact that it booted from a USB key which made it very easy to work with.

Storyboard is running well on the platform and is fully accelerated though the DirectFB driver.  The main core ran right away on the SH platform with no changes.  And with a few tweaks to the DirectFB support animations and transitions are snappy and the layer support is a nice plus.  Next we will be working on the hardware video integration.
