Mini PCIe IO and processing module based on Microsemi PolarFire MPF300T-1FCVG484 FPGA

This is a small footprint mini-PCIe board with circuit to support 3G/SDI videos. It uses PolarFire MPF300T-1FCVG484E FPGA fpr processing and interface to host and the TI LMH0397 chip for 3G/SDI functionality. It has 2 U.FL connector which can be used as 2 Output or as one Input and one Output.

There is a complete  BSP for supporting host Linux under RedHat 7.9 or Ubuntu 20.04. For detailed information please contact Sundance support team, but below is a short list of features and functions available as part of BSP:

  1. supports 3G and SDI, raw and formatted modes
  2. support two modes of operation:
    1. Idle or Capture.
    2. Playback
  3. Read from host and send to output
  4. Capture and write to host and save to file
  5. Capture and send to output
  6. Supports Y C′bC′r 4:2:2  formats:
    1. 10bit: 1080p30, 720p60, 1080p60, 1080p25, 720p50, 1080p50;
    2. 12bit: 1080p30, 1080p25;
    3. Support of 30/1.001 & 60/1.001 variants;
  7. RGB 4:4:4 format: 10bit: 1080p24;
