PT8 is a Multistandard Video encoder IP core with support for 960H outputs.


PT8 is a multistandard Video encoder supporting PAL-M/N/B/D/G/H/I and NTSC-M/J.

The intellectual property core accepts BT656 formatted data, in either 8 or 10 bit format, and the associated 27MHz clock, and it encodes this data to a 10 bit, digital composite video signal, also at 27MHz which can be used to directly drive a digital to analogue converter, modulator or other output device.

  • PAL-M/N/B/D/G/H/I, NTSC-M/J and 960H outputs.
  • High quality video output: <1% DG and <1deg DP, <1% K-factor and <-70dB SNR.
  • Requires BT656 compatible input and 27MHz clock.
  • Fully programmable for non-standard inputs and outputs.
  • Output is up-sampled to 27MHz straight binary digital composite video.
  • 12 bit chroma modulator.
  • Switchable Sinx/x correction.
  • Pre-programmed register settings for PAL and NTSC.
  • Standard 8-bit control interface bus.
  • Demonstration board available (SB5).


Order Codes:
