Synchronization of Video Timing Controller as generator using fsync_in, outputs remain static

Jump to solution

I have had no success trying to sync a VTC via its fsync_in pin, from another VTC's fsync_out. There are just no signals toggling on the outputs. Below is some relevant info, I'd appreciate advice please.

- VTC ver 6.1

- Vivado 2015.4

Use in block design:

Setup:

HI @reindeer613,

 

Could you move to a newer vivado version. The fsync option in the GUI is an issue which is fixed in 2016.3. I reccomend you to move the the latest vivado version (i.e to 2018.2)

Hi @reindeer613,

 

The first thing I note is that you have "enable detection" enabled while all the signals for detection are disabled. I am not sure this could work.

Hi, this VTC is part of a larger system that I am developing on a Zedboard, and found the problem with the following setup:

1) no AXI-lite interface.

2) ~80MHz input clock with synchronous reset

3) fsync_in derived from another VTC's vsync  (1 clock pulse wide)

4) output syncs go to the system, but also to pins on the IO connectors

5) measure with a scope to confirm clock input and fsync_in as required. The reset is used by other parts of the system that work, so I assume the VTC is not stuck in reset.

 

The result is just static outputs, ie, HS, VS and AV remain high or low.

 

To answer @florentw 's question, it appears to be impossible to de-select detection, and then select "Synchronize Generator to Detector or to "fsync_in". The option becomes grayed out, and the fsync_in pin is not made available.
