The 980 series platforms are modular based systems that can accommodate multiple 980 series modules. There are two 980 Advanced Test Platforms (ATP) currently available:
1) The 980 ATP - 2-slot, 10.4 inch touch display
2) The 980B ATP - 5-slot, 15 inch touch display
Both the 980 and 980B Advanced Test Platforms have a common software base and can be equipped with the same modules except where noted below. The difference between the two platforms is the number of modules they can accommodate and the size of the touch display for operation and viewing. The 980 platform can accommodate two (2) modules and is equipped with a 10.4 inch touch screen. The 980B platform can accomodate five (5) modules and is equipped with a 15 inch touch display.
Currently there are three (3) modules available. Detailed information including data sheets, presentations, user guides etc. can be obtained for each module at the links below:
1) The 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer module
2) The 980 HDMI Video Generator module
3) The 980 MHL CBUS Compliance Test module
4) The 980 DP 1.2 Video Generator module
. (980B only)
Note regarding "980 Gen 3" usage: The 980 Advanced Test Platform (ATP) name is replacing the existing product name: "980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer Gen 3." The 980 ATP is equipped with the 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer module as a standard feature. The other modules are available as options at the time of purchase or upgrade.
The platforms and their modules can be controlled either through the PC-based 980 GUI Manager or through the embedded 980 GUI Manager running on the 980/980B platforms themselves. The 980/980B's built-in color touch screens provide a graphical user interface (GUI) to control the instrument and to view incoming video and metadata in the Real Time mode when using the 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer modules or the HDMI analyzer.
