LogiCORE IP Spartan-6 FPGA Triple-Rate SDI (Serial Digital Interface) - I cannot find the "hd sdi" protocol in the Spartan-6 GTP Transceiver Wizard

Description

I cannot find the "hd sdi" protocol in the Spartan-6 GTP Transceiver Wizard?

The Spartan-6 FPGA Triple-Rate SDI core and XAPP1076 say to use the "hd sdi" protocol when using theSpartan-6 GTP Transceiver Wizard, but the"hd sdi" protocol is not available.

Solution

The Spartan-6 GTP Transceiver Wizard v1.6 and later change the name of the protocol from "hd sdi" to "sdi". This is the protocol that users should select when using the Spartan-6 GTP Transceiver Wizard to generate the GTP instantiation template for use with the Spartan-6 FPGA Triple Rate SDI core.

The Spartan-6 GTP Transceiver Wizard v1.10 added a "3G-SDI" protocol. This protocol does not work with the Spartan-6 FPGA Triple-Rate SDI core, and should not be used with Spartan-6 FPGA Triple-Rate SDI designs.
