I would like to use the Python 1300-C Camera module for my Xilinx VC707 evaluation kit. Unfortunatey, the camera hardware user guide says to connect the 2.5V LVDS signals to Xilinx HR banks. My Virtex-7 only has 1.8V HP banks. Despite the voltage difference, I know it is still theoretically possible by using external terminating resistors.
My question is if anyone tried attaching this camera to non zedboards? Does the external terminators degrade the signal since it is now so far away from the receiver? What was your experience like? Also...why is it so hard to get this sensor's extensive datasheet? Seems a little bit weird to keep it such a secret.
Any kind of discussion on this matter would be incredibly helpful.
Thanks in advance!
