Dear all,I'm using the Test Pattern Generator (from Altera) to feed the clocked video output. I configured it to generate a 176x144(QCIF) pixels progressive colorbar for my DVI output. The colorspace is RGB with 8 bits per color space using 4:4:4 sampling. The clocked video output is configured like this: Image Width: 176 pixels Image Height: 144 lines Bits per pixel per color plane: 8 Color plane transmission format: parallel Pixel fifo size: 176 pixels Sync signals: on separate wires But how to set these synchronization settings like h/v sync, h/v front porch, h/v back porch? Altera has some default settings for HD1080p, bu can anybody tell me know to calculate these parameters for other resolutions? Thanks!
DVI is not usually used for such low resolutions. The DVI spec has a minimum pixel clock of 25.175 MHz. To achieve this clock rate with such a low resolution would require a high refresh rate or unusually large blanking intervals.The HDMI spec has a similar minimum clock frequency. For resolutions like 720x480i60, the HDMI spec requires pixel repetition to get the clock rate high enough. What are you trying to feed with your DVI output? Perhaps you need to consider scaling up your video to something like 640x480p60.
Thanks you two. The output from DVI is connected with a 23 inches LCD monitor. My plan is to test the smaller resolution first, then gradually scale up to larger resolution like VGA or HD1080
I would start with 640x480. I haven't tried before so I don't know for sure, but I suspect most DVI monitors will not work with a resolution much lower than this.
