Last Updated:11/20/2017


Where can I find the references to module guide resources for the Express Logic GUIX Synergy Port module on sf_el_gx?


Information on the module guide itself and the associated resources and known issues are available here.


The Express Logic GUIX Synergy Port Module, SF_EL_GX, is the Express Logic GUIXTM adaptation layer for Synergy MCU groups, which have graphics engines GLCDC, DRW (2DG engine) or a JPEG decode engine. The API supports graphics hardware engine setup for GUIX and supports graphics rendering and displaying accelerated by hardware engines. The module defines full-set of GUIX low-level display driver functions which draw graphics accelerated by DRW (2DG engine) or JPEG, or displays graphics with GLCDC (See the GUIX User Guide Chapter 5: GUIX Display Drivers). The module encourages the hardware acceleration for graphics rendering but also allows software processing without hardware support.

The GUIX Synergy Port Framework module features include:

  • Adapts GUIX to the SSP Framework
  • Attaches the SSP Display Interface driver to GUIX Display Driver Interface
  • Allows GUIX to draw widgets accelerated by the Synergy D2W (2DG) engine
  • Allows GUIX to draw widgets accelerated by the Synergy JPEG engine
  • Supports double-buffer toggling control for screen transitions without tearing
  • Supports screen rotation (90/180/270 degree)
  • Supports various output color formats
    • 32bpp (ARGB8888, RGB-888)
    • 16bpp (RGB565)
    • 8bpp (8bit Palette (CLUT))
  • Support for user callback functions
