The available CLIPs for the NI 6587 LVDS FAM perform serialization/deserialization with a ratio of 1:10 (ChannelSerdes) or 1:6 (ConnectorSerdes). Sometimes applications require different serialization/deserialization ratios (e.g. CameraLink – 1:7) for which the CLIP can be modified.
This tutorial describes the steps in detail which are required to achieve 1:7 SERDES ratio with the NI 6587 LVDS FAM. During the modification, the clocking of the acquisition is also fundamentally changed to support sampling controlled by a frame clock.
