Tektronix Inc. has revealed that a novel Method of Implementation (MOI) leveraging a fully automated compliance test and debug solution for the recently released HDMI 2.0 specification has been approved by the HDMI forum as the official compliance solution. The solution offers comprehensive coverage of the required HDMI 2.0 transmitter and receiver electrical PHY tests to ensure consistent interoperability between suppliers, stated the company.

The successor to the widely adopted HDMI 1.4a/b standard, HDMI 2.0 is geared to meet the bandwidth requirements of forthcoming Ultra HD or 4K TVs while using existing cabling for backward compatibility. It significantly increases bandwidth to 18Gb/s 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.

Tektronix HDMI 2.0 test solution

Compared to alternatives, the Tektronix 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 cuts the need for additional equipment such as 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.

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.

Available worldwide, the software pricing starts at $8,000 MSRP.
