Chrom-ART DMA2D features

Chrom-ART Accelerator™ is the commercial name for STMicroelectronics’ implementation of their DMA2D peripheral on the STM32F429. The DMA2D, or 2 dimensional Direct Memory Access peripheral and its integrated features make it particularly advantageous for managing graphics. It features:

  • Two input pixel format converters (PFC) to read and decode bitmap files
  • A blender to compute and mix data from the two input PFC
  • An output PFC, which decodes the information to be sent to the destination.
  • FIFOs for both inputs and outputs
By integrating blending, encoding and decoding functionality in the microcontroller itself, ST relieves the core and the application code of these tasks. The DMA2D greatly simplifies coding of applications that display graphics (bitmaps), multiple graphic objects, layered objects, transparency and moving graphics on a color LCD display.

The STM32F429 EvoPrimer and Open4 examples provided here, ease implementation of a range of graphic effects using the DMA2D peripheral and an API to facilitate programming. The source files for the DMA2D can also be easily implemented on the users own hardware with an STM32F429 processor.

A video showing the DMA2D demonstration application is provided here.
