Table 100.  Members of c_av_st_video_source_sink_base Class
Member Description
mailbox # (c_av_st_video_item) m_video_items= new(0); The Avalon-ST video standard allows you to send symbols in serial or parallel format. You can set this control to either format.
t_pixel_format pixel_transport = parallel;
string name = "undefined";
int video_packets_sent = 0;
int control_packets_sent = 0;
int user_packets_sent = 0;
int readiness_probability = 80; Determines the probability of when a sink or source is ready to receive or send data in any given clock cycle, as manifested on the bus by the READY and VALID signals, respectively.
real long_delay_probability = 0.01;
  • The readiness_probability control provides a steady state readiness condition.
  • The long_delay_probability allows for the possibility of a much rarer and longer period of unreadiness, of durations of the order of the raster line period or even field period.
rand int long_delay_duration_min_beats= 100; This control sets the minimum duration (as measured in data beats of) a long delay.
Note: If pixel_transport = parallel than one data beats = one pixel = one clock cycle.
rand int long_delay_duration_max_beats = 1000; This control sets the maximum duration (as measured in data beats) of a long delay.
rand int long_delay_duration = 80; constraint c1 {long_delay_duration inside [long_delay_duration_min_beats: long_delay_duration_max_beats]};}
