980 Software Package

The Teledyne LeCroy quantumdata 980 Advanced Test Platform is a modular based systems that can accommodate up to two (2) 980 series modules. The 980 and its modules can be controlled either through the PC-based 980 GUI Manager or through the embedded 980 GUI Manager running on the 980 Platform itself. The 980 Test Platform features a 10.4 inch color touch screen which provides a graphical user interface (GUI) to control the instrument and to view incoming video when the analyzer is in use.








The quantumdata 980 Test Platform is a 2-slot chassis with a 10.4 inch touch screen. It can be equipped with 2 modules. The HDMI Protocol Analyzer module is always equipped in the first slot. The modules that can be equipped in the 980 Test Platform are:

  • 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer module. The 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer module supports deep analysis of HDMI and MHL streams as well as HDMI (1.4 and 2.0) and MHL compliance testing for source, sink, repeater/dongle devices. For HDMI the tool provides full visibility into the HDMI protocol, timing, control and auxiliary data up to 300MHz (HDMI) which supports testing of HDMI 2.0 4K Ultra HD sources at 50/60Hz using 4:2:0 pixel encoding. For MHL the module supports analysis of MHL 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 2.0, 2.1 and 2.2 source devices.
  • 980 HDMI Video Generator / Analyzer module. The 980 HDMI Video Generator / Analyzer module supports video and audio functional testing at data rates up to 300MHz for testing 4K Ultra HD TVs at 50/60Hz. The module features two (2) HDMI outputs—both active simultaneously—for testing HDTVs with multiple HDMI inputs. The module also optionally supports analysis functions for testing source devices such as basic video analysis. The module now supports HDMI 2.0 test features for: 1) 4K Ultra HD TVs at 50/60Hz using 4:2:0 pixel encoding, 2) 21:9 formats up to 300MHz and reading and 3) displaying EDIDs with HDMI 2.0 capabilities.
  • 980 MHL CBUS Compliance Test module. The 980 MHL CBUS Compliance module provides complete test coverage of the CBUS Link Layer tests, RCP tests and Common tests in the MHL CTS. The module supports the CBUS compliance test for source, sink and dongle devices.
