About the Nios II Embedded Evaluation Kit Picture Viewer

The picture viewer application is built for the Nios II standard processor system to show-case the video display via the LCD touch panel.

The picture viewer application takes JPEG images or bitmaps stored on the SD Card and displays them on the LCD Touch Panel.

The Nios II CPU decodes the images and stores the pixels in a video buffer in DDR. A Scatter-Gather DMA is used to transfer pixel data from teh video buffer to teh video pipeline
