Unlocking the 3D Capabilities of Graphics Display Controllers
More and more, users expect 3D-rendered elements in user interfaces for LCD displays. These expectations will intensify over the next few years and by 2015, it is predicted that 3D interfaces will be the norm. Generating 3D images requires a sophisticated graphics display controller (GDC), such as Fujitsu's MB86R0x "Jade" and MB86R1x "Emerald" families. In many cases, existing applications are not fully utilizing "Jade's" 3D rendering capabilities. This white paper provides an overview of Fujitsu's 3D GDC and explains how to unlock the power of 3D with "Jade". The ways that 3D significantly improves 2D user interfaces and the overall end-user experience are examined. Finally the paper describes how Fujitsu can help companies develop 3D user interfaces.
