## How to determine video clocking frequency and how to do VGA bits conversion

Jump to solution

Hi,

I'm studying video output with VGA and I'm having two questions about how it works:

1. How do I determine the video clocking frequency given a resolution and a frame rate?

2. I want to display a RGB image, each channel having 8 bits. How do I convert these 8 bits to ZedBoard VGA specification of 4 bits per channel?

Thanks in advance

I strongly suggest following VESA CVT video timing and/or CEA video timing.

These definitions are suitable for you.

> 2. I want to display a RGB image, each channel having 8 bits. How do I convert these 8 bits to ZedBoard VGA specification of 4 bits per channel?

I'm not familier with ZedBoard. However, generally, I recommend to refer this connections.

RGB_IMAGE_R[1] = ZEDBORD_R[0]

RGB_IMAGE_R[3] = ZEDBORD_R[1]

RGB_IMAGE_R[5] = ZEDBORD_R[2]

RGB_IMAGE_R[7] = ZEDBORD_R[3]

Best regards,
