FPGA Based Massage Display System Improvement using Scanning Technique to Minimize Power Consumption

K. Saharia, M. Motiur


This paper presents a field programmable gate array (FPGA) based embedded system for low power message display. Scanning technique is used to minimize the power consumption. The experiment is conducted on 30 seven segments where an field programmable gate array based intelligent controller scans all the display elements continuously at a certain speed to ensure only one display unit is on and other are off at a given time but human eyes cannot detect it. The test result shows the significant reduction of power consumption over static display system. That is very essential of power efficient solution for the portable electronic system.
