JESD204 v5.1 IP - Rx TVALID not correctly asserted under certain conditions


For Subclass 1 operation, JESD204B requires that a SYSREF signal is generated.

A periodic SYSREF is valid, but when all of the following conditions are met, the core does not assert TVALID after correctly synchronizing the link:

  • SYSREF Period equals Multiframe Size
  • Subclass is set to 1
  • RX_BUFFER_DELAY is set to 0
  • SYSREF_ALWAYS is set to 1


For a Periodic SYSREF signal, the period must be greater than the Multiframe size in use on the link.

If the SYSREF period must match the LMFC period then setting a non-zero value in RX_BUFFER_DELAY will also fix the problem.

Note It is also a requirement of the JESD204 core that the SYSREF period be a multiple of 4 byte clocks, as the core operates on a 4-byte datapath.
