AN4059 discusses the various clocking options that can be used in these applications when using the HOTLink II device.This application note focuses on HD-SDI applications at the 1.485 Gbps.

Introduction

The HOTLink II™ family of physical layer (PHY) devices is a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint communications building block that provide serialization, deserialization, selectable 8B/10B encoding/decoding and framing functions. The family of devices are used in both SD (Standard Definition) and HD (High Definition) SDI (Serial Digital Interface) applications, that is, SMPTE 259M-CD (270 and 360 Mbps), and SMPTE 292M (1.485 and 1.485/1.001 Gbps).
