The Teledyne LeCroy quantumdata 980 HDMI 2.1 Protocol Analyzer module is equipped with an HDMI Rx port supporting HDMI 2.1 Fixed Rate Link (FRL) and Forward Error Correction (FEC) capture analysis and decode up to 48Gbps (12Gbps/Channel). The HDMI Rx analyzer port provides visibility into the Fixed Rate Link packetization—FRL packets, Character blocks and Super blocks. The module also supports the link training functions of a receiver in the FRL mode in both 3 lane and 4 lane configurations to test a source's FRL link training function.
The 980 HDMI 2.1 Protocol Analyzer module provides the deep analysis test features necessary to test the development of your HDMI 2.1 FRL-capable source device. Deep analysis enables you to identify and resolve interoperability problems early in the product life cycle. The 980 HDMI 2.1 Protocol Analyzer depicts the incoming FRL packet structure and associated control elements. This includes depicting the Character Block structure and Super Block structure. All FRL packet data elements are assigned precise timestamps.
The 980 HDMI 2.1 Protocol Analyzer module can be equipped in the following Quantum Data 980 Advanced Test Platforms:
The quantumdata 980 HDMI 2.1 Protocol Analyzer captures and decodes incoming HDMI 2.1 streams packetized with Fixed Rate Link (FRL) packet structures. These FRL-related data elements are depicted graphically in the Event Plot and in table form in the Data Decode window. The Forward Error Correction (FEC) characters are also shown as associated with the specific Character Blocks. Each element is assigned a precise time stamp. Users can search and filter the FRL captured data by type.
The 980 HDMI 2.1 Protocol Analyzer supports the functions necessary to emulate an HDMI 2.1 FRL-capable sink device. The module emulates the EDID elements related to FRL in the HF-VSDB and supports the link training function using the control registers in the SCDC. The 980 HDMI 2.1 Protocol Analyzer's Auxiliary Channel Analyzer (ACA) utility supports monitoring both the EDID exchange and the FRL Link Training transactions—reads and writes to the SCDC registers over the DDC channel. The ACA enables you to verify link training functions to identify potential interoperability problems.
The following are a list of features and benefits for the 980 HDMI 2.1 Protocol Analyzer.
Fixed Rate Link Source Analysis – Provides deep analysis test features necessary to test the development of your HDMI 2.1 FRL-capable source device. The 980 HDMI 2.1 Protocol Analyzer depicts the incoming FRL packet structure and associated elements. This includes depicting the Character Block structure and Super Block structure. All FRL packet data elements are assigned precise timestamps.
Forward Error Correction - Reports the Lane Error Counts and Reed Solomon Corrections Count in the SCDC Reed Solomon Corrections Counter registers.
Link Training - Supports link training through EDID and SCDC register emulation in accordance with the sink link training states defined in the HDMI 2.1 specification. Monitor Link Training transactions in the Auxiliary Channel Analyzer (ACA) utility to show SCDC reads and writes over the DDC channel.
Filtering of Data Transactions – Check box filtering allows you to remove data types from view that you are not interested in. Filter out all data islands except audio sample packets and audio infoframes, for example, to compare the respective values for sampling rate.
Searching Through Data – Search through the captured data to locate the specific occurrence of the data and or events you are interested in.
Data Portability – Data portability enables you to share capture data and compliance test results with colleagues, subject matter experts at other corporate locations and other experts for analysis. The 980 test instrument is not required to view the test results. The data can be viewed through the 980 GUI Manager which is free and available from The Teledyne LeCroy quantumdata website.
Built-in touch screen display – Enables you to control the 980 directly through the 980 built-in color touch screen display.
