Implement SMPTE SDI interfaces with transceivers

Posted: 08 Jan 2013     Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:serial digital interface  broadcast video equipment  ancillary data  FPGA 

The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) serial digital interface (SDI) family of standards is widely employed in professional broadcast video equipment. These interfaces are used in broadcast studios and video production centres to carry uncompressed digital video, along with embedded ancillary data such as multiple audio channels.

The Xilinx SMPTE SDI LogiCORE IP is a generic SDI receive/transmit datapath that does not have any device-specific control functions. This application note provides a module containing control logic to couple the SMPTE SDI LogiCORE IP with the Kintex-7 GTX transceivers to form a complete SDI interface. This application note also provides several example SDI designs that run on the Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA KC705 evaluation board.
