TLC Wavemaster14 January 2016 – Teledyne LeCroy announced the addition of QPHY-HDMI2 and QPHY-eDP, expanding its automated transmitter test solutions for display standards to include HDMI Version 2.0, and Embedded DisplayPort. Teledyne LeCroy’s QualiPHY automated compliance test solution platform reduces the time, effort, and specialized knowledge needed to perform compliance testing on high-speed serial buses.

The QPHY-HDMI2 software option for the WaveMaster/SDA/DDA 8 Zi series of oscilloscopes provides a concise set of validation/verification and debug tools written in accordance with version 2.0 of the High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) electrical test specification. HDMI test modes cover amplitude, timing, and jitter parameters. In addition to standard eye pattern and jitter tests for HDMI 2.0, the SDA real-time test equipment platform provides a complete set of amplitude and jitter measurements as defined in the HDMI specification. Use of an optional RF switch matrix for further test automation is fully supported, as is comprehensive fixture and switch de-embedding capability.

The QPHY-eDP software option for the WaveMaster/SDA/DDA 8 Zi series of oscilloscopes provides an automated test environment for running all of the real-time oscilloscope tests for sources in accordance with Version 1.4a of the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) Embedded DisplayPort PHY Compliance Test Guideline. QPHY-eDP supports testing at up to 5.4 Gb/s for full coverage of all bit rates included in the eDP 1.4 compliance test guideline. As with QPHY-HDMI2, optional RF switching and de-embedding is also supported by QPHY-eDP.

QualiPHY guides the user through each test setup with easy-to-follow connection diagrams, performs each measurement in accordance with the relevant test procedure, compares each measured value with the applicable specification limits, and fully documents all results.

Pricing and Availability

Both QPHY-HDMI2 and QPHY-eDP have a list price of $7000. Both are available on WaveMaster 8Zi, LabMaster 9Zi, and LabMaster 10Zi oscilloscopes with bandwidths of 13 GHz or higher and running firmware version 7.9.x or later.
