    Thanks for pointing that out. I'll fix it.
    The 2D supports openGL Alpha blending. If it's missing from the Spec, I'll add it. You can see the modes here:...

    I don't think I said noncommercial use. If I did, let me know where and I'll change it.
    GPLv3 allows commercial use if you GPLv3 all of the code in the device. If you were to build a system with...

    Hi all,
    I am Frank Bruno and the GPLGPU is my core. Please feel free to ask questions if you'd like. I wanted to clear some things up:

    1) This core is not intended for people to use to replace...

    I'll try to contact Linus. I'm sure Stallman is OK, but I waffled a bit on the license, so I'm not sure if he'll support it as LGPL, but I'll try.

    True about the LEON.

    A 128 bit datapath isn't...

    I did email Dr. Stallman about this, but I'm not sure I made a good impression. I mixed up free software vs. open source. I'll try to follow up with him.

    We have no intention of ever competing against AMD or Nvidia for the 800M/yr reasons you mention above.

    Sorry for taking so long to respond.
    2D without the VGA (Only needed for true VGA applications, i.e. booting legacy PCs) will fit nicely in a 7010. The VGA may fit also, but it would be tight and...

    Thanks. I'm working on addressing these issues. I'm a hardware engineer in the thick of FPGA design daily, so I probably write too much like an engineer.

    I'm also working on solutions for people...

    Hi Guys,
    I wanted to chime in. I'll be happy to answer questions or take abuse.

    This project goes beyond drivers, unlike many other "open hardware" projects. The GPU can be poked, modified, improved upon. The source code that builds the logic that becomes the GPU is all in...

    Thanks for the ideas. I will definitely get in touch with both RMS and Jim. I'd like to get some of our materials ready to show them, so it'll probably be a couple of weeks.

    150Kish luts should be enough to build a system w/ 3D. 2D would be a lot less.
    We are currently looking at the Altera or Xilinx SOC boards for the hard processors and converting the IP to use AXI....

    They are generally expensive as they support many peripherals to show off the FPGA capabilities. They also have very high density connectors which allow expansion. Typically they include FPGA...

    That is true. The boards are expensive, though. So possibly it comes down to making our own w/ just the components we need to make it work. Something to think about.

    Hi Olaf,
    Thanks for the response. The only issue with building a board like that is that they already exist. Most of the Altera and Xilinx boards have some form of display out (usually HDMI). One...

    I'd love to hear thoughts on licensing. I'm not averse to letting people use the code in any project they want, even if commercial. My main concern is that any modification from the register...

    The GPU is roughly equivalent to a 1998 graphics accelerator in performance and features when implemented on a low end FPGA.

    The 2D core fits in a Cyclone2 25. The 3D (I need to get accurate #s),...
