Developing an interactive GUI or touchscreen application? Avnet Electronics Marketing, an operating group of Avnet, Inc.

To facilitate designs using the 7-inch Zed Touch Display Kit, Avnet is providing an HDL-based display panel controller core that resides in the Xilinx Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC programmable logic.
