SNLS696A April 2021 – May 2021 TSER953
Operation in synchronous mode offers the advantage that the receiver and all of the sensors in a multi-sensor system are locked to a common clock in the same clock domain, which reduces or eliminates the need for data buffering and resynchronization. The synchronous clocking mode also eliminates the cost, space, and potential failure point of a reference oscillator within the sensor module.
In this mode, a clock is passed from the deserializer to the serializer through the V3Link back channel, and the serializer is able to use this clock both as a reference clock for an attached image sensor, as well as a reference clock for the link back to the deserializer (V3Link forward channel). For operation in this mode, the TSER953 must be paired with a deserializer that can support this feature such as the TDES954 or the TDES960.
