23.4.1. Achieving Genlock Controller Free Running (for Initialization or from Lock to Reference Clock N)
The IP drives the Genlock controller DAC PWM output pin to high impedance if you do not drive it. Therefore, the external Genlock controller floats to either high or low, which pushes the VCXO to one of its limits. However, this floating isn’t always stable especially because of changes in temperature. Intel recommends you always drive the Genlock controller DAC PWM output pin with a known value. At this stage you can drive that pin and no contention exists on the PCB.
If the Genlock controller is free running, at some point you may need to lock to a reference clock. As you don’t know the reference clock frequency, lock from the VCXO mid value.
- Enable DAC driver from High Z to mid value:
- Write DAC control register = 0x1
- If the IP is already locked to reference clock, return the DAC to its mid value. Leave both the PFD and LPF as they have no impact on the DAC output.
