Dear Sir,

My customer is using ADV7619KSVZ-P in video processing system. During the test, when the input signal is 4K X2K YCbCr 422, mussy spot flicking noise occurs on the display. The attached picture is for your information.

The noise only occurred when the input signal is 4K-YCbCr 422, if the input signal is 4K-RGB4444K-YCbCr444, or lower resolution, no noise occurred at all.

Input signal relevanted AVI Infoframe listed as below: (AVI infoframe data indicates it is YCbCr 422)

R range below (228,0,0) : No noise

R range above (228,0,0) to (255, 0,0) : Spot flicking noise occurred

G full range (0,255,0) : No noise

B range below (0,0,228) : No noise

B range above (0,0,228) to (0, 0,255) : Spot flicking noise occurred

Would you please help to check and give some advice for this noise issue?


What’s more, there is another technical issue for ADV7619 application in this customer: (It is not concerned with below issue, just a new question)

Sometimes ADV7619 IO Map (0x98) register 0x6A readback value indicate that DE regeneration lock signal is not locked and Vertical sync filter is not locked. It this case, ADV7619 must be reset and configurate one more time.

Would you please help to advise also what’s the cause for it?


Many thanks in advance.
