D/AVE HD is an evolution in the D/AVE family to support high quality 2D rendering for displays up to 2K x 2K.

D/AVE HD is an evolution in the D/AVE family supporting high quality 2D rendering and basic 3D rendering for displays up to 4K x 4K. Targeting modern graphics applications on high resolution displays in the Industrial, Medical, Military, Avionics, Automotive and Consumer markets, D/AVE HD is designed to be fast with powerful functionality and at the same time optimized regarding size and footprint.

D/AVE HD is available for both FPGA and ASIC integration with high customizability as well as scalability and a peak performance between 1 and 16 pixels per clock cycle. D/AVE HD offers several enhancements over the previous D/AVE 2D version as related to various blit operations, cache enhancements, texture pre-fetch, power management and system functionality.
