1 About the 980 Protocol Analyzer module
This chapter provides an overview of features of the 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer and the 980 GUI Manager. The
980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer is an analyzer for HDMI/MHL source devices. It provides deep visibility into the
HDMI/MHL protocol to help resolve common interoperability problems in HDMI/MHL systems. The 980 GUI
Manager is a PC application to manage and use the 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer module and other 980 modules.
The 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer module is able to parse HDMI streams from source devices with a TMDS clock
and pixel clock up to 297MHz.
1.1
What makes the 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer Module Unique?
The 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer for HDMI or MHL source devices provides full visibility into the protocol, timing,
control and auxiliary data. It captures and decodes encrypted or unencrypted metadata (audio sample, infoframes
and other data packets) as well as DDC transactions and CEC messages (C-Bus transactions for MHL).
Competitive “analyzers” available on the market are more limited because they utilize commercial silicon chips.
The 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer module uses a proprietary solution and therefore can provide much greater
visibility into the protocol, timing and control data. The competitive “analyzers” support some of the 980 HDMI
Protocol Analyzer features but not nearly all of them. They support functional testing but not true interoperability
testing. Functional test “analyzers” often support only real time monitoring. The 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer
supports capture and store as well as Real Time monitoring.
For these same reasons, the 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer module can support all of the tests in the HDMI and
MHL source protocol compliance test specification. Functional test instruments cannot. For example, the 980
HDMI Protocol Analyzer supports all the Protocol source tests in Test 7-17 of the HDMI Compliance Test
Specification and the Protocol Tests in the section 3.2.2.2 in the MHL Compliance Test Specification related to
control periods, preamble and guard bands. Similarly the 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer module can measure the
audio sample rate precisely and therefore measure audio jitter correctly. Functional test instruments cannot
support these tests correctly.

Connection for 980 GUI Manager and 980/980B – HDMI Sink Compliance
This subsection describes the procedures for connecting the external 980 GUI Manager to the 980/980B when
testing an HDMI sink device for compliance. If you are using the embedded 980 GUI Manager this procedure does
not apply. In order to operate the 980/980B with the external 980 GUI Manager you will need to establish a
connection between the 980 and the 980 GUI Manager. The 980 GUI Manager will be running on your laptop or
host PC. You will either be connecting directly from the 980 GUI Manager to the 980 through an Ethernet cable or
you will be connecting through your corporate LAN network or local Ethernet hub.
When using the external 980 GUI Manager, you will need to ensure that the IP addresses of the 980 and the
network interface card on the PC hosting the 980 GUI Manager are compatible. To be compatible, the IP
addresses must have the same network portions of their IP address but different host portions. You can either
change the IP address of the host PC using standard Windows OS techniques or you can change the IP address
of the 980. The 980 is provisioned with a default IP address (192.168.1.10).
If you are connecting directly between your host PC and the 980 or through a local Ethernet hub, you will manually
set the IP addresses of the host PC and 980/980B such that they are compatible. If you are connecting through
your corporate LAN, the PC that the external 980 GUI Manager is running on will typically have an IP address
assigned to it through DHCP services. In this case you can either assign an IP address to the 980/980B directly or
allow the network DHCP server on your corporate network to assign one to the 980/980B.
The procedures for setting the IP address of the 980/980B are provided in the following subsection. These
procedures also describe how to enable the 980 DHCP client to allow the network to assign an IP address.
3.2.1
Establishing the Ethernet connections between the 980 GUI Manager and the 980/980B
This subsection describes how to make the physical Ethernet connections between the PC hosting the external
980 GUI Manager and the 980. This procedure assumes that you have assembled the 980/980B and host PC for
the 980 GUI Manager and applied power to them.
To make the physical Ethernet connection when using the external 980 GUI Manager and connecting
through your corporate LAN or local Ethernet hub:
This procedure is used when you using the external 980 GUI Manager and connecting to the 980/980B through
your corporate LAN network or local Ethernet hub. If you are connecting directly from the 980/980B to the 980 GUI
Manager, use the next procedure.
1. Connect an Ethernet cable from the 980/980B Ethernet jack on the lower left half of the back panel of the
980/980B to your corporate LAN or local Ethernet hub. Refer to the diagrams below.

5.2
Making the physical connections for 980 GUI Manager control
This subsection describes the physical connections required to run the MHL sink compliance tests. The 980 HDMI
Protocol Analyzer and the 980 GUI Manager serve only as a controller for running the MHL Sink Compliance Tests.
The tests are executed by the 882E/EA (except where noted).
There are three connection scenarios for running and controlling the tests through the 980 GUI Manager
application. These scenarios are described below and shown in the set up diagrams that follow:

Using the embedded 980 GUI Manager running on the 980.

Using the external 980 GUI Manager with point to point Ethernet configurations between the 980 and the
Host PC (where the external 980 GUI Manager resides) and between the 980 and the 882.

Using the external 980 GUI Manager and connecting from a Host PC to the 980 and 882 through a
corporate Ethernet LAN.
To make the physical Ethernet connections when using the embedded GUI Manager:
Use this procedure when you are running the MHL sink compliance test suite through the embedded 980 GUI
Manager. This procedure assumes that you have assembled the 882, 980 Protocol Analyzer and sink device under
test and applied power to all these devices. Refer to the procedures and diagram below.
1. Connect an Ethernet cable from the 980 Ethernet jack on the lower left half of the back panel of the 980
Protocol Analyzer frame (refer to the diagram below) to the 882EA Ethernet jack. The IP address on this port
can be configured using the procedures at Connection Scenarios for 980 Manager to 980 Protocol Analyzer.

This procedure assumes that you have assembled the 882, Host PC, 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer and sink device
under test and applied power to all these devices. Refer to the procedures and diagram below.
Ethernet connection for MHL sink compliance testing (MHL 1.2 example with TPA-MHL-8R)
1. Connect an Ethernet cable from your PC hosting the external 980 GUI Manager to an Ethernet jack on your
corporate network or Ethernet hub.
2. Connect an Ethernet cable from the 882 to an Ethernet jack on your corporate network or Ethernet hub.
3. Connect an Ethernet cable from the 980 Ethernet jack on the lower left half of the back panel of the 980/980B
frame to an Ethernet jack on your corporate network or Ethernet hub. The IP address on this 980 port is
configurable using the procedures at: Setting the IP address of the 980 Protocol Analyzer. Refer to the
diagram below.
5.2.1
Setting the IP address of the 980/980B
This procedure describes how to set the IP address of the 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer module. You can change
the 980’s IP address through the 980’s front panel touch screen display. You can also allow the network DHCP
server to assign an IP address. This procedure assumes that you have powered up the 980, have the physical
Ethernet connections in place and that the embedded 980 GUI Manager has been launched.
If you are using the external 980 GUI Manager it will be running on your laptop or host PC you will be connecting
the 980 GUI Manager to the 980/980B through your corporate LAN network or a local Ethernet hub. You will need
to ensure that the IP addresses of the 980 and the network interface card on your host PC and the 882 are
compatible. To be compatible, the IP addresses must have the same network portions of their IP address but
different host portions. The 980 is provisioned with a default IP address (192.168.1.10). You can either assign an
IP address to the 980 directly or allow the network DHCP server to assign one to the 980 that is compatible with
your corporate network. The procedures for changing the IP address of the 980 are provided in the following
subsection.

Rev. A4
If you are using the embedded 980 GUI Manager you will only have to ensure that the IP address of the 980 is
compatible with the IP address of the 882. But you can set the IP address of the 882 through the 980 GUI
Manager.
To set the IP address of the 980 through the embedded 980 GUI Manager:
This procedure assumes that you have established a physical Ethernet connection between your PC and the 980.
Note that you will have to use the embedded 980 GUI Manager to set the IP address for the initial connection.
1. Touch select the Instrument Network Settings icon on Page 4 (Other apps) page as shown below.
A dialog box will appear showing the current IP address and enabling you to reset the IP address.

6.2
Making the physical connections for 980 GUI Manager control
This subsection describes the physical connections required to run the MHL dongle compliance tests. The 980
HDMI Protocol Analyzer and the 980 GUI Manager serve only as a controller for running the MHL Dongle
Compliance Tests. The tests are executed by the 882E/EA (except where noted).
There are three connection scenarios for running and controlling the tests through the 980 GUI Manager
application. These scenarios are described below and shown in the set up diagrams that follow:

Using the embedded 980 GUI Manager running on the 980.

Using the external 980 GUI Manager with point to point Ethernet configurations between the 980 and the
Host PC (where the external 980 GUI Manager resides) and between the 980 and the 882.

Using the external 980 GUI Manager and connecting from a Host PC to the 980 and 882 through a
corporate Ethernet LAN.
To make the physical Ethernet connections when using the embedded GUI Manager:
Use this procedure when you are running the MHL sink compliance test suite through the embedded 980 GUI
Manager. This procedure assumes that you have assembled the 882, 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer and sink device
under test and applied power to all these devices. Refer to the procedures and diagram below.
1. Connect an Ethernet cable from the 980 Ethernet jack on the lower left half of the back panel of the 980 HDMI
Protocol Analyzer frame (refer to the diagram below) to the 882EA Ethernet jack. The IP address on this port
can be configured using the procedures at Connection Scenarios for 980 Manager to 980 Protocol Analyzer.
Ethernet direct connection for MHL dongle compliance testing (MHL 1.2 example shown)
Page 171
August 14, 2013

Rev. A4
To make the physical connections using Ethernet network connections with the external GUI Manager:
This procedure assumes that you have assembled the 882, Host PC, 980 Protocol Analyzer and sink device under
test and applied power to all these devices. Refer to the procedures and diagram below.
Ethernet connection through Hub for MHL dongle compliance testing (MHL 1.2 example shown)
1. Connect an Ethernet cable from your PC hosting the external 980 GUI Manager to an Ethernet jack on your
corporate network or Ethernet hub.
2. Connect an Ethernet cable from the 882 to an Ethernet jack on your corporate network or Ethernet hub.
3. Connect an Ethernet cable from the 980 Ethernet jack on the lower left half of the back panel of the 980
Protocol Analyzer frame to an Ethernet jack on your corporate network or Ethernet hub. The IP address on this
980 port is configurable using the procedures at: Setting the IP address of the 980 Protocol Analyzer. Refer to
the diagram below.
6.2.1
Setting the IP address of the 980/980B
This procedure describes how to set the IP address of the 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer module. You can change
the 980’s IP address through the 980’s front panel touch screen display. You can also allow the network DHCP
server to assign an IP address. This procedure assumes that you have powered up the 980, have the physical
Ethernet connections in place and that the embedded 980 GUI Manager has been launched.
If you are using the external 980 GUI Manager it will be running on your laptop or host PC you will be connecting
the 980 GUI Manager to the 980/980B through your corporate LAN network or a local Ethernet hub. You will need
to ensure that the IP addresses of the 980 and the network interface card on your host PC and the 882 are
compatible. To be compatible, the IP addresses must have the same network portions of their IP address but
different host portions. The 980 is provisioned with a default IP address (192.168.1.10). You can either assign an
IP address to the 980 directly or allow the network DHCP server to assign one to the 980 that is compatible with
your corporate network. The procedures for changing the IP address of the 980 are provided in the following
subsection.
If you are using the embedded 980 GUI Manager you will only have to ensure that the IP address of the 980 is
compatible with the IP address of the 882. But you can set the IP address of the 882 through the 980 GUI
Manager.
