20.1. About the Test Pattern Generator IP

The IP produces an Intel FPGA Streaming Video compliant output stream, with each field containing one of the fixed test images. The IP enables you to adjust the output resolution, color space, subsampling, and selected test pattern at run time.

The IP supports both the full and lite variants of the Intel FPGA streaming video protocol. You can use IP during the design cycle to validate a video system without the possible throughput issues associated with a real video input.

The IP:

  • Supports Intel FPGA Streaming Video protocol, including variable color and chroma sampling interfaces.
  • Produces data on request and consequently permits easier debugging of a video data path without the risks of overflow or misconfiguration associated with the use of real video input.
