1. SDI IP Core Overview

The Serial Digital Interface (SDI) IP core implements a receiver, transmitter, or full-duplex SDI at standard definition (SD), high definition (HD), or 3 gigabits per second (3G). The SDI IP core supports dual standard (HD-SDI and SD-SDI) and triple standard (SD-SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI). These modes provide automatic receiver rate detection.

Attention: Intel has discontinued support for the SDI IP core. You may continue using this IP without support. However, Intel recommends that you use the SDI II Intel® FPGA IP for the latest features and continued support.
