BEAVERTON, Ore., Nov. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tektronix, Inc., a leading worldwide provider of measurement solutions, today announced a new DisplayPort Type-C Transmitter Test solution that significantly reduces compliance test times compared to both previous Tektronix DisplayPort solution and those available from competitors. According to real-world field evaluations, the highly optimized solution for use with Tektronix high-performance oscilloscopes allows engineers to complete the full suite of DisplayPort Type C compliance tests in less than 6 hours compared to competitive offerings that require up to 16 hours to complete -- a remarkable execution speed.
One of the biggest challenges for DisplayPort compliance testing has been long test times with engineers needing to spend a great deal of time in front of the test setup monitoring the execution in progress. Adding to this difficultly has been the need to also integrate testing for DisplayPort Type-C, which is supported as one of the alternative modes under USB 3.1 specification. In addition to full automation and shorter test times, the new release of the Tektronix DisplayPort test solution also integrates support for the Type-C specification including automated test setup and timer pop-ups to help users perform hands-free testing.
