Verify HDMI 2.0 receiver compliance with ARB-based suite

May 31, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Keysight Technologies’ integrated HDMI test option is intended to simplify product verification, and is ready for the next generation of HDMI with 65 Gsample/sec sample rate and 25 GHz analogue bandwidth

Keysight’s M8195A 65 Gsample/sec arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) supports an integrated HDMI 2.0 receiver compliance test solution. The N5990A automated compliance and device characterization test software claims the broadest HDMI 2.0 test coverage available and now allows fast and reliable HDMI 2.0 testing with the M8195A AWG.


In addition to the N5990A software’s HDMI sink test option 151, the automated test solution includes option 350 for HDMI extended display identification data (EDID), consumer electronics control (CEC) and high-bandwidth digital content protection (HDCP) tests. All relevant HDMI 1.4 and 2.0 tests are supported, including source and sink transition minimized differential signalling (TMDS) protocol 6G and scrambling tests.
