  • should work with any DSI display up to 1920x1080p
  • built-in frame buffer & simple rasterizer with basic graphics primitives
  • HDMI input up to 720p (basic version) or 1080p (with external receiver chip)
  • simple host interface for drawing commands: SPI or parallel 8-bit


  • VR googles (Oculus & alike)
  • home-made projectors
  • graphics card for small microcontrollers
