ADC-8032B User Manual (Iss. 02B)
Introduction • 1-1
Overview
The ADC-8032B is a 10-bit broadcast quality decoder with a 12-bit analog to digital converter. It is
specifically designed for broadcast or production situations in which an analog PAL-B, PAL-M, PALN, or NTSC composite signal must be converted to a component SDI signal. Four SDI outputs are
provided.
The ADC-8032B fits into the Ross 8000 series digital frames, with four cards in the DFR-8104A
(1RU), and up to ten cards in the DFR-8110A (2RU). Please refer to the frame User Manual for
specific ventilation and cooling instructions to maintain optimum operating conditions. This card also
fits into Leitch* FR-6800 series frames to provide you with greater installation versatility.
The ADC-8032B is available in two different models:
•
ADC-8032B - The base model decoder includes Proc Amp, Line Delay, and Line
Synchronizer modes.
•
ADC-8032B-S - The “S” model includes a Frame Synchronizer, along with all the
features available on the ADC-8032B
The ADC-8032B-S version comes with a full featured frame synchronizer, capable of synchronizing
incoming video to house reference. Various timing modes are available to accommodate most
situations. New techniques in frame synchronization contribute to the board’s low power
requirements and compact design. The complete circuit for the ADC-8032B, including a 12-bit A-D
converter, decoder, frame (or line) synchronizer, serializer, tracking delay pulse, and microprocessor is
contained on a single DA-sized card. Additional daughter cards are not required.
A rich set of features is instantly accessible using simple card-edge switches and controls in
conjunction with a concise Heads-Up Display. The ADC-8032B’s 10-bit decoding process provides
excellent performance with all types of picture sources. In order to achieve the highest level of
precision, all signal processing and decoding is performed entirely in the digital domain. The decoder
uses adaptive 3D, 3-line, and 5-line filters with advanced control algorithms.
To simplify configuration, the ADC-8032B offers a Heads-Up Display for most board-level
adjustments. This display is especially convenient during setup, and for programming several ADC8032B cards with identical configurations. With the display enabled, the parameter currently being
adjusted has its value super-imposed over all board outputs.

About the Timing Modes
The ADC-8032B and ADC-8032B-S offer two sets of timing modes; Line Delay/Sync and Frame
Delay/Sync.
4-14 • Using Banks
ADC-8032B User Manual (Iss. 02B)
ADC-8032B Timing Mode Features
•
Line Delay and Line Sync timing modes
•
Two lines of memory
•
Can be timed within one line in 37ns increments
•
Can be field-upgraded to the Frame Sync version
ADC-8032B-S Timing Mode Features
•
Frame Delay and Frame Sync as well as Line Delay and Line Sync timing modes
•
One frame of memory
•
Can be timed within one frame in 37ns increments
Both versions of the ADC-8032B offer a tracking delay output that pulses high at frame rate on
BNC 6. The pulse width is a measurement of the video delay through the card. This is useful when
connecting with devices which accept this type of measurement signal (such as the RossGear ADL8520 AES Audio Delay Unit). On both versions, the fine phase potentiometer (RV2) is provided for
sub-pixel adjustment.
Line Delay (ADC-8032B & ADC-8032B-S)
Line Delay mode uses the input signal to generate the output timing. There is a constant delay
between the input and the output. The external reference is not used in any way. This is useful in
applications where a constant delay through the card is required.
The delay through the card has a minimum value, as described in Chapter 7, “Specifications”. Output
timing can be adjusted from this minimum delay up to an additional two lines in sub-pixel increments.
Line Sync (ADC-8032B & ADC-8032B-S)
Line Sync mode uses the external reference to generate the output timing on a line-by-line basis, but
uses the input signal timing to decide when a frame begins.
Whenever a signal is received, the output-timing generator waits for the next falling edge of H Sync
on the external reference before displaying the incoming line. The advantage of this mode is that as
long as all input sources are timed to be on the same line, the output timing stays constant, regardless
of which input is selected. This is very useful in that all sources to the ADC-8032B (for example,
from a routing switcher) only need to be lined up to the same line.
The Line Sync mode has internal latency, so that using minimum delay still means that the output
video will not be lined up with the external reference. To do so would have added even more latency,
which would not be desirable. However, output timing can be delayed by up to two lines from the
minimum delay point on, in sub-pixel increments, so that the output video can be lined up as required.
Note
If two input sources are not on the same line, then switching
from one source to the other causes a jump in the output timing
by an exact number of lines. For example, if the two sources
are 2.5 lines apart, the output will jump by either 2 or 3 lines
depending on the position of the sources with respect to the
external reference.
ADC-8032B User Manual (Iss. 02B)
Using Banks • 4-15
Threshold Point
As the input signal is delayed in time, there comes a point where the output timing will have to jump
by exactly one line (the output must always come after the input). This point is called the threshold
point. When comparing the input signal with the external reference, the threshold point is 26
microseconds before the falling edge of the external reference. In other words, if the input signal’s
falling H sync edge is 26 microseconds before the external reference’s falling H sync edge, the input
signal is said to be on the threshold point.
In addition, there is built in hysteresis so that if an input source is on the threshold point, the output
timing will be constant and will not jump back and forth by a line if the input signal varies slightly.
However, if the input signal is exactly on the threshold point, the output timing may vary from one
power up sequence to the other. In other words, the card may power up with different timing than the
previous time it was powered-up. To avoid this condition, it is recommended to keep the input signal
away from the threshold point. Two microseconds can be considered a safe distance.
In Line Sync mode, you should keep the falling edge of the
incoming video away from the threshold point.
Note
Frame Delay (ADC-8032B-S)
The Frame Delay mode is identical to the Line Delay mode, except that the output timing can be
delayed by up to a full frame of video. By using almost a full frame of delay, it is possible to set
apparent negative timing, making it look like the output occurs before the input, although delayed by 1
frame.
Frame Sync (ADC-8032B-S)
The Frame Sync mode makes it possible to use asynchronous sources. The output timing is generated
entirely based on the external reference. Whether a synchronous or an asynchronous source is used,
output timing is constant. The delay through the card will be the minimum latency (in the order of
microseconds) to a full frame of delay.

•
Crossing the minimum delay returns the H Delay value to 1715 (NTSC or PAL-M)
or 1725 (PAL-B or PAL-N) and decrements the V Delay value by 1.
Crossing from 0 to maximum or from maximum to 0 will affect
the V Delay setting in Bank C-4.

Sub-pixel timing adjustments can be made using the RV1 Fine Phase Adjust
potentiometer on the front edge of the card. Turning the pot clockwise increases
delay, whereas turning it counter-clockwise decreases the delay. The range is
approximately ±20 ns, which is slightly longer than the step size of the H Delay
function.

It is recommended that the Hotswitch Mode and Input Loss Mode
have the same setting: both set to freeze, or both set to black. There
is circuitry in the sync stripper that removes unwanted impulses to
make the circuit more noise tolerant. During a hotswitch, this could
cause the ADC-8032B to interpret the signal has been lost. Since the
Input Loss mode overrides the Hotswitch mode setting, having one
set to freeze and the other set to black could lead to a momentary
glitch on the output.
Important
Bank C-B: Hotswitch Mode
The ADC-8032B uses a phase-locked-loop (PLL) to synchronize its pixel clock to the incoming
signal’s line rate. Because of this, any disturbance to the incoming line rate, such as an untimed
switch outside the lock window of the PLL, will cause the PLL to lose lock. It can take several fields
before the PLL can regain lock, and until it does so, the decoder cannot properly decode the incoming
video. The result is that untimed switches will result in a disruption to the output video.
To mask this disruption, a hotswitch mode was created. This is accomplished by momentarily freezing
the last good frame, or momentarily going to black while the untimed switch occurs. Going to black is
recommended since the output can be forced to black as soon as the hotswitch condition is detected.
Freezing must wait until the next field, in which case a single corrupted field could get through to the
output.
4-22 • Using Banks
ADC-8032B User Manual (Iss. 02B)
In Frame Sync, the output timing will be undisturbed as it is based on the external reference. In Line
Sync mode, as long as the input sources are on the same line relative to the external reference, and
they do not cross the threshold point (see Bank C-1 Timing Mode for details on the threshold point),
then the output timing will also be undisturbed. In all other cases, the output timing will be disturbed
any time an untimed switch is made at the input of the ADC-8032B. This function sets the mode or
disables it. Three choices are available:
•
Off - disables the Hotswitch Mode.
•
Black - the output momentarily cuts to black when an untimed switch is made at the
input.
•
Freeze - (ADC-8032B-S only) the last valid image is momentarily frozen. The
freeze will affect either field 1, field 2 or the entire frame (as determined by the
Freeze Mode function).
In either case, the output returns once the card has resynchronized to the input. Use the following
steps to set the Hotswitch Mode:
1.
Select Bank C, and rotate Function Select to position B.

Note
Freeze hotswitching is not supported in Line Delay, Line Sync and
Frame Delay timing modes. If one of these timing modes is
selected and freeze hotswitching is enabled, the hotswitch will go to
black instead.
Important
Because output timing is disrupted in Line Delay and Frame Delay
modes, hotswitching is not guaranteed to go completely black.
These two timing modes should never be used if the input source is
switched while on air, since the output timing will be affected, and
this could affect equipment downstream of the ADC-8032B.
Important
It is recommended that the Hotswitch Mode and Input Loss Mode
be set the same with either: both set to freeze, or both set to black.
There is circuitry in the sync stripper that removes unwanted
impulses to make the circuit more noise tolerant. During a
hotswitch, this could cause the ADC-8032B to interpret the signal
has been lost. Since the Input Loss mode overrides the Hotswitch
mode setting, having one set to freeze and the other set to black
could lead to a momentary glitch on the output.
Important
Time-based error-prone signals such as from a VTR will falsely
trigger the hotswitch. Thus if the Input Mode is set to VTR it
forces the Hotswitch Mode to OFF.

Details
Overview
The SMPTE 269M Fault Reporting system, also known as an SMPTE “alarm”, provides indication if
one or more frame modules encounter a fault or an abnormal condition. The ADC-8032B module
provides a jumper to enable SMPTE-269M fault reporting. The card connects by means of an internal
interface circuit to an auxiliary telco connector on RossGear 8000 series frames. When the frame
connection is interfaced with a customer-designed system of LEDs or audible alarms, faults can be
traced to a specific frame when a card fault occurs within that frame.
The following diagram illustrates a general arrangement for SMPTE 269M alarm reporting:
Figure 6. SMPTE 269M Alarm Reporting: Internal interface and typical connections
ADC-8032B User Manual (Iss. 02B)
SMPTE 269M Alarm Reporting • 5-1
Jumper Setup
If fault reporting for the ADC-8032B is desired, use jumper JP5 - 269M Fault Report to set up the
card.
1. To access the jumper, remove the card from the frame by pressing down the white
card ejector tab and pulling the card from the frame slot.
2. Observing all static discharge and handling precautions, place the card with the
component side facing up on a clean flat surface.
3. To enable SMPTE fault reporting, set jumper JP5 to EN position. See the Jumper
Setup section in Chapter 2 “Installation and Setup”.
4. To disable SMPTE fault reporting, set jumper JP5 to DIS position. See the Jumper
Setup section in Chapter 2 “Installation and Setup”.
5. To return the card to the designated frame installation slot, hold the ADC-8032B
card by the edges and carefully align the card edges with the slots in the frame. Then
fully insert the card into the frame until the rear connection plug is properly seated.
Frame Connections
The SMPTE 269M Fault Reporting connection on RossGear 8000 series frames is provided by the
auxiliary telco connector, AUX A, for interfacing with a customer-designed alarm system.
Aux A Connectors for
SMPTE 269M Fault Reporting
Figure 7. SMPTE 269M Alarm Reporting Frame Connections
Connect the frame’s AUX A connector to your facility’s SMPTE alarm circuit.
Details
The fault report contacts are closed when the card detects an internal failure or a power loss condition.
The fault report will pulse off for 1 to 2 ms about every 16ms if the input signal is low or missing.
Some internal failures are:
•
Failure of the card to initialize
•
Failure in the fault reporting circuitry
•
Failure to detect a valid analog input signal to the card
For additional information on alarm system design, refer to the SMPTE document
ANSI/SMPTE 269M - 1999.
