February 5, 2014 - Combining hardware and integrated software, HDMI 2.0 Test Solution fully supports all physical layer testing for source and sink devices as well as cables. System minimizes test set-up complexity through use of automation framework for Tx testing and direct synthesis approach for receiver testing. Instead of requiring engineers to set up multiple pieces of equipment, solution uses AWG70000 arbitrary waveform generator to produce required test signals and specified impairments automatically.

New Test Solution Offering Spans All HDMI 2.0 PHY and Protocol Tests for Fast, Consistent and Accurate Results

BEAVERTON, Ore., -- Tektronix, Inc., the world's leading manufacturer of oscilloscopes, today announced a fully automated compliance test and debug solution for the recently released HDMI 2.0 specification. The solution covers the HDMI 2.0 transmitter tests and Direct Synthesis based receiver tests, and cable test requirements for fast, consistent and accurate test results.

The successor to the widely adopted HDMI 1.4a/b standard, HDMI 2.0 is designed to meet the bandwidth requirements of forthcoming Ultra HD or 4K televisions while using existing cabling for backward compatibility. It significantly increases bandwidth to 18Gbps and adds such features as 32 audio channels and simultaneous delivery of video and audio streams to multiple users. As with previous HDMI versions, compliance and debug test solutions are critical to ensuring successful implementation of the specification.

"As a contributor to the HDMI 2.0 test specification and one of the leading providers of HDMI test solutions globally, Tektronix is uniquely qualified to help our customers bring Ultra HD/4k televisions and other HDMI 2.0 certified products to market," said Brian Reich, general manager Performance Oscilloscopes, Tektronix. "This solution provides HDMI 2.0 compliance test support and addresses electrical test requirements with a simple and reliable environment that shortens time to market."

Compared to alternatives, the Tektronix HDMI 2.0 test solution significantly reduces test set-up complexity through the use of new automation framework for Tx testing and a direct synthesis approach for Receiver testing. Instead of requiring engineers to set-up multiple pieces of equipment, the Tektronix solution uses an AWG70000 arbitrary waveform generator to produce required test signals and specified impairments automatically. This potentially reduces test times from days to few hours.

For designers and test engineers at consumer electronics manufacturers, semiconductor companies, and cable manufacturers, the Tektronix HDMI 2.0 solution consists of high-performance hardware and integrated software, fully supporting all physical layer testing for source and sink devices as well as cables. The full solution includes MSO/DPO/70000 series real-time oscilloscope, HDMI compliance testing software, AWG70000 series arbitrary waveform generators, DSA8300 sampling oscilloscope for time domain reflectometry (TDR), IConnect software for serial data network analysis, and test fixtures.
