Eric,

it looks like I am missing something

1) the only thing at X-Fest was the rotazoom that takes images from
NOR flash
no video pass through demo (at X-Fest in Munich)

2) the only "derived" DDR2 design seems to be board test design where
PicoBlaze
reads out the MIG testbench error led status and displays p or f on
hyperterminal -
is this the MIG derived design you have been referreing to, or is
there some more
functional design available?
