The PIXCI® A310 uses a programmable pixel clock with range of frequencies from 12 to 165 MHz. Video formats with vertical sync frequencies less than 40 Hz are not supported. Separated VSYNC or an external sync separator must be used to support video formats having field rates less than 40 Hz. Acquire from interlaced or progressive analog video, monochrome or component RGB with sync on green (default), or separate horizontal and vertical sync inputs.
