2.7. Hardware Setup

To run the hardware test for parallel loopback designs, connect an SDI video generator to the receiver input pin.

  • Connect an external video analyzer to the TX instance to verify full functionality.
  • To validate if the RX core locks to the signal and receives the video data correctly, use the on-board LEDs that display the RX status.

To run the hardware test for serial loopback designs, connect the transmitter output pin directly to the receiver input pin.

  • To validate if the RX core locks to the signal and receives the video data correctly, use the on-board LEDs that display the RX status.
  • You may also connect an SDI signal analyzer to the transmitter output pin to view the generated image.
