Xilinx provides a SMPTE ST 2059 timing core to enable the synchronization of broadcast and professional AV equipment (slaves) to an IEEE1588 grandmaster clock, accelerating time to market and driving the convergence of broadcast and IP networks.
The SMPTE ST 2059 LogiCORE IP provides broadcast and professional AV equipment the ability to support deterministic generation of timing (signals) for video and audio systems. Audio/visual systems are generally synchronized, locked to the same time base with a relative phase with respect to a master time generator. This makes seamless switching between cameras or mixing a presenter in front of weather graphics possible. The same can be true for audio devices. The Xilinx ST 2059 core uses the IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) to provide time-aligned signal generation, thus permitting the interoperable use of IP-based media equipment with conventional genlocked SDI equipment.
Based on standard AXI4-Stream, AXI4-Lite and AXI4-MM interfaces, the ST 2059 core can easily be integrated into your system design.
