Advice on SDI over WiPy project

  • Hi guys, I'm trying to make sdi transceiver module using these sdi fiber extenders , lets say I have SFP module and read sdi stream into memory buffer or array of files, then I would like to send it further with WiPy, will it work with uncompressed sdi streams 500-1500Mbps? If yes, could you please recommend me any related articles/topics with similar applications? I appreciate your help guys, thank you!

  • Thank you for advice! I would probably use Verilog then.

    That's WAY above what the WiPy can do, those rates are FPGA territory not microcontroller stuff. I think the maximum the ESP32 can do is 10Mbps on the Ethernet port.

    If you want to stay within Python you could try the PYNQ-Z1 which has a Xilinx Zynq FPGA and ARM combo:

    But be warned that even with Python it's quite a learning curve.
