Question.  What is maximum display resolution of i.MX51 in dual display mode ?

 

Answer.  Maximal peak rate (including blanking overhead) of i.MX51 :

- Single display: 110 MPixel/sec

- Total: 120 MPixel/sec

 

So, if SXGA (1280x1024 ~ 1.3 MP) is the first display, this consumes 78 MP/sec = 1.3MP * 60 Hz, therefore only additional WQVGA (400x240 ~ 96 KP, ~5.8MP/sec) display can be supported.

 

WVGA configuration (800x480 ~ 0.4 MP) exceeds performance restriction, since it consumes ~24MP/sec at 60Hz.
