The SDI-PCIe Bridging reference design uses Altera’s SDI MegaCore® function and the internal hard coded PCI Express in Altera’s Stratix® IV GX FPGAs to create a bridging function for triple-rate SDI-in to PCI Express-out, and vice versa. Omnitek’s direct memory access (DMA) controller provides efficient DMA in the serial digital interface (SDI) video stream to and from the PCI Express domain.
Figure 1 shows the block diagram of the reference design.
