3. Functional Description

The SDI IP core implements a transmitter, receiver, or full-duplex interface. The SDI IP core consists of the following components:

  • Protocol block—transmitter or receiver
  • Transceiver
  • Transceiver controller

In the parameter editor, you can specify either protocol, transceiver, or combined blocks for your design. For example, if you have multiple protocol blocks in a design, you can multiplex the blocks into one transceiver.

The transceiver can be either a soft-logic implementation or a GX transceiver.
