The intellectual property core accepts BT656 formatted data and the associated 27MHz clock which it encodes to a 10 bit, digital composite video signa at 54MHz, which can be used to directly drive a digital to analogue converter, modulator or other output device. PT9 include circuitry to reduce or eliminate cross colour and cross-luma artifacts that standard line-comb decoders are prevalent to.
- PAL-M/N/B/D/G/H/I, NTSC-M/J and 960H/1280H outputs (optional).
- High quality video output: <1% DG and <1deg DP, <1% K-factor and <-70dB SNR.
- Requires BT656 video input and 27MHz clock.
- Fully programmable for non-standard inputs and outputs.
- Can work in either slave or master mode.
- Output is up-sampled to 54MHz straight binary digital composite video.
- Switchable luma and chroma comb to reduce cross-colour and cross-luma artifacts in the decoder.
- Pre-programmed register settings for common standards.
- Standard 8-bit control interface bus.
- Demonstration board available (SB5).
- Broadcast quality encoding.
- Almost eliminates cross-colour and cross-luma from line decoder outputs.
- 54MHz up-sampled output.
- Pre-programmed settings for common standards.
- Programmable for non-standard/custom standards.
- PT9: Video Encoder IP core - unlimited time/use license. Supplied as RTL compliant Verilog source code for unlimited time/unit use, (all FPGA vendors and ASIC/IC), with 6 months e-mail design-in support, Verilog test bench (optional) and user manual.
- A version of PT9 with support for 960H and 1280H formats is also available.
- SB5-PT9: PT9 evaluation board.
- Remote inspection.
- Cable TV.
