#185493 - ah well
Responding to: Christoph Franck's previous message
The incoming video is some completely made up standard never seen before apart from this one product so they had no choice really we quoted them for the extra work and they had to swallow it, but it just goes to show even if you have a specification and you discuss it in detail with the customer it still doesn't mean that they know what they are asking for.
It was a strange project all along as they had already designed the hardware complete with cypress FIFOs and outdated CPLD and they just wanted someone to write the code for the CPLD, even that wasn't straight forward as the FIFOs are pipelined and you have to do stupid tricks to keep the read and write pointers aligned.
