Video Test Patter Generator not producing data

Jump to solution

I've been trying to understand how to use the AXI4-Stream to Video Out IP but can't seem to get anything on the screen. Here is my test circuit:

I have included the TCL file for this design below

 

I have a Video Test Pattern Generator connected to an Axi4-stream to Video Out IP driven by a Video Timing Controller IP. The Axi4s to video out is driven by a 25Mhz clock and the VTC and VTPG are driven by a 50 Mhz clock (is this correct?) 

 

Here is a simulation:

As you can see, Tdata ( from the VTPG ) produces only X's. TVALID is never set. The lock signal is never produced as well. Any ideas on why this is happening? My target board is the Nexys 4 DDR. Here are the settings for my IPs:

 

Any guidance would be appreciated! 

 

ip1

 

ip2

 

ip3

 

ip4

ip5

Hi @rishubnagpal,

 

You might want to read the Product Guide for the TPG (PG103) before using it.

 

You are not controlling the AXI-Lite interface. The TPG IP requires to be started by configuring reg 0x0:

You can have an example of simulation with the TPG using the Example design for the TPG. Refer to PG103 chapter 6 (Simulation example design).

@florentw Thanks for the quick reply.

 

Does this mean I will need a MicroBlaze processor?

Hi @rishubnagpal,

> For simulation you can use only a VIP as in the simulation reference design.

For running on HW, the recommended (and simplest ) flow is to use a Microblaze but if you want you can only create an customer IP to do the AXI4-Lite write to registers.
