In this paper, I propose how to implement a MDDI protocol packet generation method in software. MDDI protocol is widely used in the display device. MDDI protocol packets are generated by software within micro processor. This method needs the minimum hardware configuration. In order to implement this method, I design a hardware platform with a high performance microprocessor and a FPGA. The packets generated by software within microprocessor are converted into LVDS signals, and transmitted by the hardware within the FPGA. This study suggests the benefits of the way software can easily create a variety of packet. But, the proposed method takes more time in packet transmission compared to the traditional method. This issue still remains as a future challenge, which can be soon improved.
