Integrated logic and 12Mbit memory chip replaces FPGAs and RAM for video buffering
DT Electronics has introduced the Logic Devices LF3312 frame buffer / FIFO. The new device simplifies the design of digital video and data buffering systems by replacing both standard synchronous Random Access Memories (RAM) and Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) logic with a single chip. The LF3312 is the most flexible memory device for buffering multiple video formats. It uses both sequential and random access addressing and integrates both h...
