Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that the Agilent HDMI 2.0 6G test solution has been selected by
after the HDMI Forum certified it as an official compliance test tool.
Agilent’s solution provides the widest coverage for HDMI physical layer compliance test. Certification was achieved using the collaborative framework of Simplay Labs Authorized Test Centers, the world’s leading HD testing service provider, with locations in Sunnyvale, California; Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen, China; and Seoul, Korea.
In the new HDMI 2.0 specification, the transmission bandwidth of 18 Gbps is one of the most important extensions that allow 4K image transmission with 4:4:4 full-color format. The
Agilent ParBERT 81250A
support 18 Gbps physical-level testing, including 6G physical-level jitter tolerance and eye diagram, which are important in identifying IC level performance.
“We’re glad to be working with Simplay Labs, delivering the 6G testing solution,” said Stefan Friebe, HDMI program lead for Agilent. “This solution will help Simplay Labs’ HDMI ATCs do faster compliance testing and development for many R&D customers.”
Simplay Labs is launching the testing service to 6G bps HDMI 2.0 products. The majority of its Authorized Test Centers use the
