ALTGX Question

We are currently using the ALTGX module to transmit HD-SDI signal out on ARRIA II GX part. Using Quartus 9.1 every seems to work fine. However, this module does not have SD-SDI option available to transmit SD (270Mbps) video format. Is there anyway to get around the issue? 

plus, what is the reason why SD-SDI option is missing from the module? 

 

NOTE: There are only HD and 3G available from megaWizard !! 

 

Thanks in advance,

Have a look on the IP SDI. 

It's under interfaces and has what you're looking for. 

 

GXB are the physical transceiver and SD-SDI are serial that runs at only 270Mbit so they're "slow" for GXB. 

You can use a "normal" LVDS IO. 

 

Hope it helps. 

 

Best regards
