Tektronix' HDMI 2.0 test solutions offers lot more automation
Fully automated compliance test and debug solution from Tektronix supporting HDMI 2.0 specs is approved by the HDMI forum. The Tektronix solution offers required HDMI 2.0 transmitter and receiver electrical PHY tests so that devices with HDMI 2.0 interface interoperate with other such devices and systems.
HDMI 2.0 meets bandwidth requirements of Ultra HD or 4K televisions with ability to handle bandwidth upto18 Gbps and adds such features as 32 audio channels and simultaneous delivery of video and audio streams to multiple users.
Tektronix says its HDMI 2.0 test solution reduces test set-up complexity through the use of new automation framework for Transmitter testing and a direct synthesis approach for Receiver testing that eliminates the need for additional equipment like cable emulators and noise stressors. With the Tektronix AWG70000 arbitrary waveform generators, engineers can produce required receiver test signals and specified impairments automatically using direct synthesis methods which reduce test setup time and additional instrument cost, explains Tektronix.
"With the new Tektronix HDMI 2.0 solution, Allion expects significant improvement in our HDMI test procedure," said Mr. Mishima, the engineering manager of High Speed Data Signal Testing Division, Allion Japan, Inc.
This solution is available now worldwide at a price starting at $8,000 US MSRP.
