Tektronix Inc. launches a Mobile High-definition Link (MHL) compliance test solution that works with the company's DPO/DSA/MSO70000 series oscilloscopes offering seamless testing and analysis from the MHL PHY layer to the link layer and back.

The Tektronix MHL test solution is based on the MHL Compliance Test Specification (CTS) 1.1 that was released in June 2011.

MHL specification
Created by the MHL Consortium, the MHL specification is an HD video and digital audio interface for connecting mobile phones and portable devices to HDTVs and other home entertainment products.

Engineers designing and validating the MHL physical layer and link layer of their devices are looking to improve efficiency and to perform a wide range of compliance tests right on their bench. The new Option MHD automates a range of MHL compliance tests for improved test efficiency, greater productivity and more reliable results. The MHL Protocol Analyser software leverages the same Tektronix real-time scope used for physical layer testing to provide an MHL protocol solution, which enables seamless transition between physical and link layer.

For MHL receiver and adapter tests, Tektronix provides a simple setup with all impairments added to the MHL signals using direct synthesis-based capabilities of the Tektronix AWG7000 Series Arbitrary Waveform Generators. This simplifies the setup and testing across the range of tests performed. Tektronix also offers an MHL cable test solution based on Time Domain Reflectrometry tests used with the DSA8300 Series Sampling Oscilloscope.

The DPO/DSA/MSO70000 series digital oscilloscopes provide the most accurate real-time performance on the market with 100 GS/s sampling rate performance for lower noise and increased data points on up to 3x oversampled 33GHz acquisitions. The AWG7000 Series Arbitrary Waveform Generators, with up to 24GS/s and 10bit vertical resolution, deliver the accuracy, performance and flexibility required for the full range of MHL debug and verification testing.

The Tektronix MHL compliance test solution including Oscilloscope Opt MHD and the innovative MHL Protocol analyser software (TEK-PGY-MHL-PA-SW) are available now.
