PT9 is a Multistandard Video encoder IP core with a special cross-colour and cross-luma reduction mode.

The intellectual property core accepts BT656 formatted data and the associated 27MHz clock which it encodes to a 10 bit, digital composite video signal at 27MHz, which can be used to directly drive a digital to analogue converter, modulator or other output device. PT9 includes circuitry to reduce or eliminate cross colour and cross-luma artifacts that standard line-comb decoders are prevalent to.

    PAL-M/N/B/D/G/H/I, NTSC-M/J and 960H outputs (optional).

    High quality video output: <1% DG and <1deg DP, <1% K-factor and <-70dB SNR.

    Requires BT656 video input and 27MHz clock.

    Fully programmable for non-standard inputs and outputs.

    Can work in either slave or master mode.

    Output is up-sampled to 54MHz straight binary digital composite video.

    Switchable luma and chroma comb to reduce cross-colour and cross-luma artifacts in the decoder.

    Pre-programmed register settings for common standards.Standard 8-bit control interface bus.

    Demonstration board available (SM09).
