GeckoFlex 8900FSS SD Frame Synchronizer & Delay Sub-Board

The 8900FSS is an efficient solution to digital system timing. Full frame synchronization and delay are available by connecting the 8900FSS to a host board such as the 8960DEC decoder or 8960ENC encoder. All user controls are resident on the host board and include output phasing/delay and freeze frame options. It operates as a companion to the popular 8920ADT and 8921ADT for audio synchronization applications. The 8900FSS requires less than 2.5W so that, even when coupled to the 8960DEC/8960ENC, up to ten host/sub-boards can be accommodated in the 8900 chassis when the front cover fan is installed.

All possible adjustments to this board can be performed directly on the host board. When the 8900NET board is installed in the chassis, you gain immediate access to remote control and monitoring.

  • 10-bit signal processing
  • Full frame output phasing for total control of output timing
  • Compatible with 8960DEC and 8960ENC
  • Outputs RS-232 serial audio delay control signal
  • Offers up to full frame of delay
  • Black or freeze on loss of video
