1. Before operation
1.1
Foreword
Thank you very much for purchasing this model VA-1809 video signal generator. This
manual contains details on the operation procedures to be followed when the VA-1809 is
used, the checkpoints and precautions to be observed, and other useful information.
Refer to its instructions when using the generator.
Ensure that the manual is kept in a safe place where it can be referred to at any time.
1.2
Safety precautions
Improper handling may result in malfunctioning. Before using the VA-1809, please read
through these instructions to ensure that you will operate the generator correctly.
■ Meaning of symbols used in the manual
WARNING
This indicates the possibility of grave bodily harm (including death or
serious injury) and/or loss of the generator's original functions as a
result of operating the generator incorrectly.
CAUTION
This indicates the possibility of bodily harm, loss of the generator's
original functions and/or damage to property as a result of operating the
generator incorrectly.
This indicates an action which is prohibited.

This indicates an action which is mandatory or whose execution must
be instructed. Specific details are indicated by a picture or text near
.
■ To ensure safe operation
WARNING
Always take hold of the molded part of the plug when
disconnecting the power cord.
Do not use force to bend the power cord or bunch it up for
use. This may cause a fire.
Do not place heavy objects on top of the power cord. This
may damage the cord, causing a fire or electrical shock.
Do not spill liquids inside the generator or drop
inflammable objects or metal parts into it. Operating the
generator under these conditions may cause a fire, electric
shocks and/or malfunctioning.
CAUTION
Install the generator in a stable location. Do not stand it on
one of its side panels. Doing so may generate heat,
causing the inside temperature to rise and possibly resulting
in trouble.
Do not subject the generator to impact. Doing so may
possibly result in trouble. Take special care when moving
the generator.
1
CAUTION
When connecting the VA-1809 to the display, connect the
frame ground (FG) terminals on both units together by
connecting the FG cable provided. If the FG terminals are
not connected together, some extremely high-cost
components (such as the output digital-to-analog converter)
inside the VA-1809 may fail. Take special care with
equipment in the process of development.
When disconnecting the VA-1809 from the display, first
disconnect the connecting cable, and then disconnect the FG
cable.
Always use the POWER switch on the rear panel to turn the
power on and off. Turning the power on or off by
connecting or disconnecting the power cable may destroy
the PC card.
When accuracy is a high-priority consideration, leave the
VA-1809 standing for 10 to 15 minutes with its power on,
and use the VA-1809 after its operation has stabilized.
In the unlikely event that trouble or malfunctioning should
occur, disconnect the power cable, and contact your dealer
or an Astrodesign sales representative.
1.3

2. Concerning the VA-1809
2.1
Introduction
This HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) protocol analyzer (henceforth
referred to in this manual as the VA-1809) allows the protocols required in the
development of HDMI transmitters to be checked. Its LCD screen on the front panel
enables the output images to be easily monitored, and its ability to rewrite extended
display identification data (EDID) allows various kinds of monitors to be simulated. It
comes with output HDMI connectors so that it can be used as a repeater. It can also be
used in the development and manufacture of DVD players and set-top boxes which are
equipped with HDMI connectors.
2.2
Features and main functions
■ LCD screen and VGA output connector provided
The LCD screen on the front panel enables the HDMI output images to be easily
monitored. Signals can also be output from the VGA output connector at the same
time as their images appear on the front panel LCD screen.
■ Built-in speaker and COAX OUT connector incorporated
The speaker and COAX OUT connector enable the output sound to be monitored
using methods other than HDMI. (Only linear PCM 2-channel sound can be heard
through the speaker.)
■ EDID rewriting supported
The EDID rewriting capability allows various kinds of monitors to be simulated.
■ Analyze function
This function makes it possible to check whether, for instance, the HDMI output data
complies with the HDMI standard.
■ Switching between receiver and repeater functions
Users can switch the VA-1809's functions from receiver (monitor) to repeater or vice
versa.
■ CF card data registration
This function allows the EDID contents and analysis results to be stored on CF cards

Concerning the internal data
6
The data of one program is stored on the EPROM of the VA-1809 main unit (for details,
refer to ???). This program data consists of EDID data and SINK data.
The data can be used as the source data for outputting data or copying it onto CF cards.
7
3. Concerning CF cards
3.1
Introduction
Analysis results can be stored in the VA-1809 by using CF cards. Alternatively, the
EDID data edited on a personal computer can be stored on CF cards using the software
supplied with the VA-1809, and this data can then be developed by the VA-1809 if the CF
card containing it is inserted into the VA-1809 main unit.
Program data, EDID data, SINK data, analysis data and Config data can be registered and
edited on PC cards.
3.2
Usable CF cards
3.2.1
Type
The type of CF card whose operation in the VA-1809 has been verified is listed
below.
• CF card (64MB) supplied as a standard accessory
Compact flash card model SDCFB-64-760MP made by Mitsubishi Plastics
(SanDisk Corporation)
CF cards come with many and varied specifications. As such, if a card whose
operation in the VA-1809 has not been verified is used, the read/write operations
CAUTION may be unstable or the card may not function at all.
3.2.2
Amount of data that can be registered
Shown below is the amount of data that can be registered on a PC card.

3.2.3
How to insert the CF cards
(1) Point the CF card in the direction of the arrow shown on the top of the
card, and insert.
Insert it all the way in.
A beep is now heard.
A beep is hard when the card is locked into place.
3.2.4
How to eject the CF cards CF
(1) Check that the data on the CF card is not being accessed.
(2) Turn off the power, and then eject the card.
Point
CAUTION
It takes 2 or 3 seconds after the EJECT button is pressed and the card is ejected before
the LED goes off. This is because processes are being undertaken inside the
VA-1809 to eject the CF card.
Do not attempt to perform any operations during this time.
Be absolutely sure to adhere to the above sequence of steps when inserting or ejecting
the CF card. Action taken in any other sequence may destroy the CF card data. In
addition, the CF card will no longer be recognized even when it is re-inserted.
