Did you encounter any ground issues when you connected your board to the camera? Did you use a zero ohm resistor between the Camera Link grounds and your ground? Did you use your ground for the Camera Control signals and the serial cantrol lines? I see in the Nation literature where there is some discussion about keeping the Camera ground out of your system but I do not see where most people bother with that.
I just used 0 ohms or a chip inductor to connect the various grounds. Didn't have any problems with teh NatSemi chips at all, I built the camera end and connected to an EPIX frame grabber that has the FPGA on it to do all the work I wanted (and more)best of all that software is written and supported. see epixinc (dot) com
I have to design a Cameralink transmitter as a part of a student project. I am so much confused about the groundings and interfacing the DS90CR287 chip to the FPGA.
Has anybody an example schematic or layout to solve my problem.
Thanks in Advance.
I am also finding a similar problem. I am interfacing DaVinci Advance processor with DeSerializer. But DaVinci accepts only BT1120 format of video data and output is not that format. So how can i convet it in BT 1120 format. Can anyone help?
