Video input ports (Maya)
Info Box

Overview[edit  edit source]
DM8148 processor provides a rich video subsystem that integrates input ports. These are described in detail on chapter 12 of [1] Technical Reference Manual.
Three video inputs are available:
 VIN0 (in turn splittable in two subports)
 VIN1 (in turn splittable in two subports)
 camera parallel interface (CPI).
From the architectural standpoint, VIN0 and VIN1 ports belong to the HDVPSS subsytems. For the sake of completeness a simplified block diagram of it is shown below.
Camera parallel interface belongs to the Imaging Subsystem (ISS) instead. As ISS documentation is released under NDA, no information are provided here. For more details about it please contact your local Texas Instruments sales representative or FAE.
Main features[edit  edit source]
The following is a list of VIN0/VIN1 main features:
 The HDVPSS supports two independently configurable external video input capture ports with up to 165MHz.
 Each video input capture port can be operated as one 24bit mode to support RGB capture or 16bit input channel (with separate Y and Cb/Cr inputs) or two clock independent 8bit input channels (with interleaved Y/C data input).
 Support both embedded sync and discrete sync
 The video capture port channel supports demultiplexing of both pixeltopixel and linetoline multiplexed streams.
 Up to 1920x1200@60 Hz (165 MHz) input data rate supports 16bit mode input port.
 Each video capture port supports one scaler capable of both up and down scaling of one nonmultiplexed input stream (one of two 8bit channel inputs or 16bit channel input data). Note that if the source is from external video decoder/camera, only down scaling is supported.
 Each video capture port supports one programmable color space conversion to convert between 24bit RGB data and YCbCr data.
 The VIP supports data storage in RGB, 422, and 420 formats.
 Each video capture port channel supports chroma downsampling (422 to 420) for any nonmultiplexed input data. The chroma downsampling for multiplexed streams is done as memory to memory operations outside of HDVPSS on an individual frame data.
Routing on Maya connectors[edit  edit source]
The following tables lists which signals  referred to video input/output ports  are routed to Maya SODIMM connector and thus are available to user application. It is also useful to visualize potential issues due to the pads' multiplexing scheme.
