Tektronix Delivers First Automated Test Solution for MHL CTS 2.0 Spec
2012-12-29
Tektronix, Inc., announced immediate availability of an automated test solution for the latest Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) Compliance Test Specification (CTS) 2.0 covering transmitter (Tx), receiver (Rx) and dongle testing for both physical (PHY) and protocol layers. The solution features a unique one box solution for PHY and protocol testing coupled with a direct synthesis based solution for Rx testing that reduces errors.

Developed by the MHL Consortium, the MHL specification is an HD video and digital audio interface for connecting mobile phones and portable devices to HDTVs and other home entertainment products. Tektronix announced a comprehensive test solution for MHL 1.2 earlier this year, and as a contributor to the standard, is moving quickly to support the latest specifications as they are released. MHL CTS 2.0 was released on October 16, 2012 and enables a number of important new innovations including PackedPixel Mode and 3D which will mandate additional testing.

Testing efficiency is further enhanced with direct synthesis-based Rx and dongle testing that provides accurate MHL signal generation including all of the impairments necessary to meet MHL CTS 2.0 requirements. The direct synthesis solution provides easier, more repeatable test set-ups and lower cost compared to complex sink-based solutions for generating signal impairments.

Availability

Option MHD with MHL CTS 2.0 support is available now worldwide. Setups used for MHL CTS 1.2 testing can continue to be used for CTS 2.0.
