UHD Serial Digital Interface (UHD-SDI)

Product Description

The UHD Serial Digital Interface (UHD-SDI), is widely used in broadcast applications for the transport of uncompressed digital video streams up to 4K resolutions over coax cable. The LogiCORE™ IP UHD- SDI interface solution provides receiver and transmitter interfaces for the SMPTE SD-SDI, HD-SDI,  3G-SDI, 6G-SDI and 12G-SDI standards.

The UHD SDI LogiCORE IP can be implemented in Xilinx 7-series and UltraScale FPGAs. Users can implement one to many 4K processing channels including capture and display on a single FPGA using UHD-SDI IP and Video processing cores from Xilinx and its partners.  The UHD SDI LogiCORE IP is designed based on applicable SMPTE standards (SMPTE ST-2081 and SMPTE ST-2082 drafts defining 6G and 12 G interfaces).

Key Features & Benefits

The core supports the following SMPTE standards:

  • SMPTE ST 259: SD-SDI at 270 Mb/s
  • SMPTE RP 165: EDH for SD-SDI
  • SMPTE ST 292: HD-SDI at 1.485 Gb/s and 1.485/1.001 Gb/s
  • SMPTE ST 372: Dual Link HD-SDI (by instantiation of two UHD-SDI cores)
  • SMPTE ST 424: 3G-SDI with data mapped by any ST 425-x mapping at 2.97 Gb/s and 2.97/1.001 Gb/s.SMPTE ST 2081-1: 6G-SDI with data mapped by any ST 2081-x mapping at 5.94 Gb/s and 5.94/1.001 Gb/s (including multi-link 6G-SDI)
  • SMPTE ST 2082-1: 12G-SDI with data mapped by any ST 2082-x mapping at 11.88 Gb/s and 11.88/1.001 Gb/s (including multi-link 12G-SDI)
  • Dual link and Quad link 6G-SDI and 12G-SDI are supported by instantiating two or four UHD-SDI cores
