The AIP-ST2059 is an FPGA IP core that generates timing and clock signals according to the SMPTE ST 2059 standard defined by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers. These deterministic timing signals can be used to time synchronize audio and video systems to a SMPTE ST 2059 (PTP) grandmaster.
The IP core provides broadcast and professional AV equipment the ability to support deterministic generation of timing (signals) for video and audio systems. Audio/visual systems are generally synchronized, locked to the same time base with a relative phase with respect to a master time generator. This makes seamless switching between cameras or mixing a presenter in front of weather graphics possible. The same can be true for audio devices.
AIP-ST2059 uses the IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) to provide time-aligned signal generation, thus permitting the interoperable use of IP-based media equipment with conventional genlocked SDI equipment.
Based on standard AXI4-Stream, AXI4-Lite and AXI4-MM interfaces, the AIP-ST2059 core can easily be integrated into your system design.
