Convenient Compliance Testing and Characterization
of HDMI 1.3 Devices
The High-Deinition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) speciication ensures the interoperability
of all digital audio and video devices. Keysight Technologies, Inc. offers solutions for testing HDMI sources, cables and sinks. The instruments of each solution provide outstanding
performance, ideal for characterizing HDMI devices. The dedicated HDMI test automation
software controls the instruments and simpliies HDMI source, cable and sink compliance
testing.
Source test solution
The DSO80000 Series Oscilloscope is the core of Keysight’s source test solution. The high
bandwidth, low noise and excellent probing solutions of these real-time oscilloscopes
show clear eye diagrams and the real margin of your HDMI sources. The N5399A software
guides you conidently through most compliance source tests.
Cable test solution
The E5971C network analyzer and the 86100C DCA-J, with its TDR modules and software,
provide impedance, intra- and inter-pair skew measurements for HDMI cables.
Sink test solution
The E4887A HDMI TMDS Signal Generator Platform provides parallel signals with low intrinsic jitter and fast edges. The HDMI Frame Generator Software is ideal for manual testing and debugging. It conigures the generator with a wide variety of HDMI video frames.
The software controls up to two E4438C Vector Signal Generators or 33250A Arbitrary
Waveform Generators as well as the TMDS Signal Generator for deined jittered signals for
jitter tolerance testing.

High quality signals for clock and data signals
Clean signals with fast transition times and very low intrinsic jitter are necessary for
device characterization. The E4887A HDMI TMDS Signal Generator Platform is based on
Keysight’s ParBERT 81250, which provides industry leading signal performance for high
speed characterization.
TMDS signal generator for independent jitter injection on the clock
signal and data signals
In combination with the E4438C Vector Signal Generator or the 33250A Arbitrary
Waveform Generator, the E4887A HDMI TMDS Signal Generator Platform offers linear
clock and data jitter injection compliant to HDMI CTS 1.3. Especially designed for jitter
tolerance device characterization, it lets you stress your device with independent jitter
components on the clock and data signal for in-depth sink characterization.
Easy to use with many video formats
You can choose from a vast variety of video formats. The frame generator software set
ups the TMDS Signal Generator with the chosen format. The jitter injection is also conveniently controlled using the frame generator software.
Integrated into compliance test software
The N5990A Test Automation Software integrates the E4887A HDMI TMDS Signal Generator Platform and the DSO80000 Series Real-Time Oscilloscope. This HDMI sink test
solution provides calibrated jitter injection for accurate jitter tolerance characterization
and compliance tests with a high test throughput.
Future proof with data rates up to 7 Gb/s
The high resolution version of the E4887A–007 HDMI TMDS Signal Generator is able to
generate signals up to 7 Gb/s and protects your investment for future device characterization.
Cable emulators designed for HDMI 1.3

E4887A-10x Series Cable Emulators
The E4887A-10x series offers different cable emulators for compliant jitter tolerance testing.
Each cable emulator is packaged and has 3.5 mm (f) connectors for TMDS clock and all three
TMDS data lanes. Each lane is differential and matched in length.
The cable emulators are offered in 3 versions:
E4887A-101 CTS 1.3 low frequency ≤ 74.25 MHz
E4887A-102 CTS 1.3 high frequency > 74.25 MHz
E4887A-103 CTS 1.3 compliant passive EQ cable emulator
The E4887A-101 emulates a CAT 1 reference cable, while E4887A-102
emulates a CAT 2 reference cable.
