Virtex-7 GTX for SMPTE SDI implementation

Posted: 13 Feb 2013     Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:SMPTE  serial digital interface  FPGA 

The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) serial digital interface (SDI) family of standards is widely utilised in professional broadcast video equipment. These interfaces are used in broadcast studios and video production centers to carry uncompressed digital video, along with embedded ancillary data such as multiple audio channels. The Xilinx SMPTE SD/HD/3G-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 Virtex-7 GTX transceivers to form a complete SDI interface. This application note also provides several example SD/HD/3G-SDI designs that run on the Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA VC707 evaluation board.
