DS90UB960 frame sync

Dear TI:

I have a urgency problem, My board deserializer is DS90UB960, serializer is DS90UB935, Sensor is AR0234, 1920*1080, FPS is 30fps, the SOC just have one camera(have one DS90UB953);
I want to generate a frame synchronization signal (FrameSync), so it can make camera generate picture, I see your DS90UB960 datasheet about FrameSync Operation, So I configure the register about 960 and 953, But I found that my configure failed.
then I print the register about deserializer and serializer, and I add my configure of deserializer and serializer, so can TI help me solve this problem?

  • Hello,

    Are you able to probe the GPIO pin to verify whether you are getting anything on the output?  I think it would be good to start by doing one thing at a time, so try setting 0x18[1] to 1 just to get a pulse with a 50% duty cycle and lets verify that we see a signal on the output of the serializer.  If not then try outputting it on one of the local GPIOs to verify that the signal is being generated properly in the deserialzier by setting register 0x10 or the respective register of a GPIO that can be probed.

    So start by generating the signal locally, then once you verify it works try sending it using the backchannel GPIOs to the serializer.

  • Hi Nick
    The camera is our customer's camera, He won't allow us to open camera, So I want to know how to mapp GPIO_0 between DS90UB960 and DS90UB953,
    I read the datasheet "7.4.11.3 Forward Channel GPIO", I try to configure deserializer regirster, But I found I failed agagin, so can you tell me that how to mapp GPIO_0 between DS90UB960 and DS90UB953, It's one serializer to one deserializer.

    Best Regards

  • Hi Nick
    I have probe the GPIO_0 pin in serializer_935, I found the gpio value is always 0, I don't the reason, can you help me?

  • Hello,

    I am a bit confused here, aren't you trying to generate the framesync signal with the 960 to be sent to the serializers?  Shouldn't you be using the backchannel GPIOs to transmit the signal to the serializer?  Thats why I was suggesting to output the framesync signal generated in the 960 to a local GPIO to see that the signal is actually being generated.  Follow the setup procedure shown in 7.4.24.

    Regards,

    Nick

  • Hi Nick:
    1.I try generate the framesync signal with the 960 to be sent to 935
    2.In my understanding, there are two ways to generate framesync, one can follow the setup procedure shown in 7.4.24 and the other one can follow the setup procedure shown in 7.4.4, Did I get that right?
    3.I have folloed the setup procedure shown in 7.4.24. next is my configure:

  • Hello,

    I don't see here where you set the GPIO registers on the 935.  Also change GPIO0 on the 960 to output mode by changing bit 0 in 0x0F and probe that GPIO to see if you can see the signal.

    Regards,
