TSG 601 User Manual
Getting Started
Please note the following statements before using your TSG 601.
CAUTION. Attempting to operate the TSG 601 with an improper AC
adapter can result in damage to the instrument. To avoid damage,
USE ONLY AN APPROPRIATE DC POWER SOURCE: Voltage must
be 9 to 15 VDC; the connector must have the NEGATIVE contact in
the center; and open-circuit voltage of the power source must not
exceed 18 VDC.
For best results, use the AC adapter that is supplied with the instrument. If the supplied adapter is incorrect for the local AC power supply, contact your nearest Tektronix representative.
WARNING. Install or replace batteries only with the instrument
switched OFF and the AC adapter disconnected.
Replace the batteries only with standard AA batteries (1.2–1.5 V,
nominal), or with the optional rechargeable battery pack.
If you use NiCad AA batteries or the optional battery pack, be sure to
set the battery type to “rechargeable” through the diagnostic menu
(see page 56). Failure to do so can result in damage to the batteries.
NOTE. Do not disconnect the AC adapter when the TSG 601 is
switched on. Some user settings may be lost, perhaps causing unexpected results the next time the instrument is switched on.
If you have any questions regarding the operation of this instrument,
please contact your nearest Tektronix representative or field office.
In the United States and Canada, you may also call the Tektronix
information number, 1-800-TEK-WIDE (1-800-835-9433), between
8:00 am and 5:00 pm Pacific time.

Operating Basics
Thank you for choosing the Tektronix TSG 601—and thank you for
reading this manual. To begin using the instrument as quickly as possible, see “Using your TSG 601,” beginning on page 5. For even
more information on selected topics, turn to “Details,” on page 17.
First, though, read the next section for tips on supplying power to the
instrument.
Powering the Instrument
The TSG 601 is DC powered. You may power it with the standard
AC adapter, the optional 9.6 V NiCad battery pack, eight standard
AA batteries, or a “BP” type battery pack with the correct voltage
and polarity. The external DC power connector is on the left side of
the instrument (see the illustration above). Open the battery compartTSG 601 User Manual

Operating Basics
ment by sliding the compartment door in the direction of the inscribed arrow until the door tabs line up with the slots in the case,
then remove the door. When selecting a power source for your
TSG 601, please remember:
H Attempting to use an improper AC adapter can cause permanent
damage to the instrument. USE AN APPROPRIATE DC POWER
SOURCE ONLY: Voltage must be between 9 and 15 VDC; the
center contact of the connector must be NEGATIVE polarity; and
open-circuit voltage must not exceed 18 VDC. For best results,
use the adapter supplied with the instrument.
H There is no need to remove the optional NiCad battery pack for
recharging. The TSG 601 will “trickle charge” the battery pack
whenever the standard AC adapter is used. It can take up to 16
hours to fully charge the battery pack. Note that charging will
occur only if the adapter supplies at least 12 V; make sure that the
adapter you use is appropriate for the local AC supply.
H AA batteries are not included with the instrument; buy them
locally. Rechargeable AA batteries may be used, but they are
NOT recharged automatically. To recharge AA batteries, remove
them from the instrument and use an appropriate battery charger.
For safety, read and follow the battery charger instructions. Do
NOT attempt to recharge standard alkaline batteries.
H After a minute with no key press, the display back light will be
dimmed to conserve battery charge.
H To guard against battery discharge if you forget to turn the
TSG 601 off, enable Auto Power Down through the Diagnostic
menu (see page 56).
H The TSG 601 can sense low battery voltage. It will warn you
when the charge is sufficient for approximately ten more minutes
of operation. The instrument will shut itself down when the battery voltage becomes too low for reliable operation. See the Battery hints in Appendix C, beginning on page 55 of this manual.
The ON key toggles instrument power On and Off.

Cable Simulation
H To simulate the addition of 50 meters of 75 Ω coaxial cable
anywhere in your system, connect the TSG 601 into the signal
path with the two BNCs marked “APPROX 50M CABLE.” The
connectors are interchangeable, and the circuit will accurately
simulate 50 m of Belden 8281 cable—which attenuates the signal
by approximately 5.4 dB at 135 MHz—whether the TSG 601 is
switched on or off.
Detecting Incorrect Termination
H A special
symbol will “flash” in the upper right corner of the
TSG 601 display to indicate improper termination of the serial
video signal path. The symbol is displayed whenever the instrument detects return loss below approximately 10 dB, which
approximates termination impedance of less than 37.5 or greater than 150 TSG 601 User Manual

Saving (Storing) Presets and IDs
1. Press Shift and then Recall. Note that the ID# first shown on the
display always indicates the current (most recently recalled) ID.
2. Scroll through the “STORE ID” (#1 through #8) and “STO
PRESET” (#1 through #4) locations with the left/right arrow
keys. The first line of any ID message already stored in the #
location will be shown in the bottom line of the display; use the
B key to see the second message line. Remember that storing the
current settings or ID will overwrite the contents of the Preset or
ID # location.
3. When the desired storage number is displayed, press ENTER to
save the current ID or Instrument settings. If you have stored an
ID, it will replace the old # contents on the bottom display line.
4. Press any rectangular key to exit the Store function.
Note that IDs are normally saved—when they are edited—through
the ID menu (see “Editing ID messages,” page 10). You may use the
Recall/Store button, however, if you wish to copy the current ID to
another memory location. Remember that the “current” ID is the last
message recalled through the ID menu or Recall; the ID will be copied (and the previous contents of the ID# location overwritten) even
when no message appears in the TSG 601 output (ID=Off).
A preset includes all of the instrument settings in effect when the
preset is saved, including the current output format, test signal, ID#,
and cycle setup. Note that ID messages themselves are not stored.
Thus, if a Preset “remembers” to display ID#4 (for example), the
latest message in ID#4 will appear whenever that Preset is recalled.
Remember, editing an ID message can have an affect on what you
get when you recall a preset.

CRCs
CRCs (Cyclic Redundancy Codes) are used in serial digital video
systems as a means of error detection and handling (EDH). This section attempts to explain CRCs and their use, and freely paraphrases
the proposed SMPTE recommended practice on the topic, RP 165.
Those familiar with the concepts should skip down to “TSG 601
CRC Options,” below, for a discussion of the available CRCs.
Checkwords. CRCs are binary numbers that are computed from the
digital samples in the serial digital video frame. The CRCs serve a
similar function as the Parity Bit in the familiar RS-232 serial interface, but with much more sophistication. The transmitting device
calculates the CRC from the information it is sending, encodes it into
a checkword, and inserts the value into the transmitted data stream.
The receiving device calculates the CRC from the received information, decodes the received checkword, and compares the two numTSG 601 User Manual
17
Operating Basics
bers. If they are the same, we can be very confident that the picture
data has been transmitted correctly. Unequal numbers mean that
something has gone wrong in the process, and that the received data
is not identical to the data that was sent. Many receiving devices will
report the discrepancy as an error.
The TSG 601 is a transmitting device, and the companion SDA 601
is a receiving device. A digital VTR, of course, can be both.
Types of CRC. Two CRC checkwords are defined in SMPTE RP 165:
one derived from a full field of samples, and another based on samples from the active picture area only. The first is known as the Full
Field CRC (FFCRC) while the other is called the Active Picture CRC
(APCRC). The checkwords are transmitted in the “ancillary data”
area of the vertical interval portion of the digital video data stream.
Because some digital video equipment strips or ignores the vertical
interval, Tektronix engineers have devised another way of using the
Active Picture CRC that does not depend on a checkword embedded
in the serial data stream. It is called the Zero Active Picture CRC
(∅APCRC). For the ∅APCRC, the transmitting device computes the
APCRC as usual until the last five samples of the picture; then, the
transmitter produces five samples that will force the APCRC to equal
zero. If the receiving equipment also computes an APCRC of zero
from the received digital video, we can be as confident of error-free
transmission as with the standard APCRC—even when the vertical
interval portion is missing from the serial video data.
TSG 601 CRC options. The TSG 601 can generate:
Normal FFCRC
Erroneous FFCRC
Normal APCRC
Erroneous APCRC
∅APCRC
The Normal CRCs are calculated and encoded in accordance with
the (proposed) SMPTE recommended practice RP 165. The erroneous (or “forced error”) CRCs are created by beginning and ending
the computation one sample later than specified in RP 165. The erroneous CRCs, therefore, will always differ from the correct value.

TSG 601 User Manual
Operating Basics
ID Messages
The TSG 601 lets the user edit ID messages “off line.” This means
that you can edit a message without affecting the instrument’s output—or the ID currently inserted in the picture. To help prevent inadvertent changes to the current ID, the instrument will only insert ID
messages that have been saved through the ID menu or the Store key.
In the TSG 601, there are eight numbered storage locations for ID
messages, ID#1 through ID#8. Each location contains a simple “factory” message when the instrument is new (or immediately after a
“FACTORY RESET”—see page 57).
The procedure for creating and displaying a new message is:
1. Select an existing ID# for editing;
2. Change the message as desired (see page 10);
3. Save the changes (by pressing ENTER); and
4. Later recall that ID# through the ID menu or the Recall key.
If you edit the current ID# (that is, the one in the TSG output when
you begin the edit), the on-screen message will change in step 3. If
you edit a different ID#, the message will not change in step 3; rather, you’ll have to perform step 4 to insert the new message. If you
edit an ID# that is part of a currently active ID cycle, the new message will take the place of the old one the first time the ID# appears
after step 3.
To minimize the chance of outputting a test signal with an incorrect
ID message, please familiarize yourself with ID selection and editing
before you use the TSG 601 in a critical application.
Embedded Audio
The TSG 601 embedded audio function provides 16 channels of audio. The maximum output, however, is four channels at a time, so the
channels are divided into four groups of four channels:
Group 1
Group 2
Group 3
Group 4
TSG 601 User Manual
Channels 1 – 4
Channels 5 – 8
Channels 9 – 12
Channels 13 – 16
19
Operating Basics
Within the audio menus, the channels are called channels 1, 2, 3, and
4 of the group that you are working in. As there must be at least two
channels (AES/EBU pairs) selected when embedded audio is enabled, you may select channels 1 and 2, channels 3 and 4 or channels
1, 2, 3, and 4.
Separate frequencies and amplitudes may be assigned to each of the
four channels. The frequency and amplitude assigned to a channel
will be the same for that channel in all four groups. The frequency
may be set to any of 26 provided frequencies, or mute. The amplitude for each channel may be set in 1 dB increments from 0 dBFS to
–20 dBFS.
The embedded audio function also provides a source ID for each
channel. This ID is enabled or disabled for the whole group of four
channels at a time. When enabled, the source ID applies ch1, ch2,
ch3, and ch4 to the appropriate channels Status Bits, as shown in
Table 7. Audio sample distributions are shown in Tables 8 and 9.
The SDI Checkfield Signals
SDI (serial digital interface) Checkfield signals—also known as
Pathological signals—are designed to test the low frequency response of serial digital video equipment. The three SDI Checkfield
signals in the TSG 601 are defined in the (proposed) SMPTE Recommended Practice RP 178; they are the Cable Equalization (Equalizer), Phase Locked Loop (PLL), and Matrix Checkfields.
The Equalizer SDI Checkfield signal tests the automatic equalizer
circuits of receiving equipment. It has been arranged to create a serial data stream with the maximum possible dc content. In practice,
the digital data contains a repeating pattern of 19 high or low states
followed by one opposite state; thus, for the longest possible period
(several times each field), the signal will be essentially “dc,” with
opposite polarity states occurring only once in every twenty clock
intervals.
The PLL Checkfield Signal tests the equipment’s ability to lock to
the serial data stream. It has been configured to give the serial data
the maximum possible low frequency content and the fewest possible
zero crossings; that is, the longest possible time between high–low or
low–high transitions in the signal. In practice, the data contains—
several times each field—a repeating pattern of 20 high states fol20
TSG 601 User Manual
Operating Basics
lowed by 20 low states. This is the lowest frequency possible, given
the data encoding schemes that are specified in the serial digital video standards.
The third TSG 601 SDI Checkfield signal is a matrix of the other
two. For a much more complete discussion of SDI Check Fields and
their use, please see SMPTE RP 178 and Tektronix publication

Battery Hints
For optimal battery life and capacity, use the rechargeable NiCad
battery pack (Tektronix p/n 119-4488-00) in full charge/discharge
cycles. In other words, fully discharge the battery pack before recharging, and then charge the battery pack until fully charged,
approximately 16 hours. A new battery pack will take a few charge/
discharge cycles to reach full capacity.
WARNING. Install or replace batteries only with the instrument
switched OFF and the AC adapter disconnected.
Replace the batteries only with standard AA batteries (1.2–1.5 V,
nominal), or with a Tektronix rechargeable battery pack (p/n
119-4488-00).
Setting the Auto Power Down (page 56) and Battery Type (page 57)
functions in the diagnostic menu also have an impact on battery life.
The battery types are disposable (Alkaline) or rechargeable (NiCad).
Setting the battery type changes the voltage thresholds for both the
BATTERY LOW display message and low-battery shut down.
The BATTERY LOW Message
The warning “BATTERY LOW” will appear on the second line of
the TSG 601 display when the battery voltage drops below a predetermined level. The level depends on the Battery Type set in the
diagnostic menu (see page 57). The TSG will operate for approximately ten minutes after the message first appears. For best results,
replace or recharge the batteries when you first see this warning.
Low-battery Shut Down
To prevent erratic operation at very low power levels, the TSG 601
will shut itself down if the battery voltage drops below a second,
lower threshold that also depends on the Battery Type setting.
TSG 601 User Manual
55
Appendix C: User Service
Low-battery shut down can happen with little or no warning if, for
instance, the instrument has been left on by mistake with Auto Power
Down disabled. In such cases, the TSG 601 is likely to shut itself
down almost immediately the next time you switch it on. If this happens:
G Install fresh batteries or operate the instrument with the AC
adapter, and
G Confirm that the diagnostic menu Battery Type setting is
appropriate.
The shut down threshold is higher for rechargeable batteries than for
disposable. Therefore, you will receive a false BATTERY LOW
message and may experience premature shut down if using Alkaline
batteries when the Battery Type is set to “rechargeable.” On the other hand, NiCad batteries may be damaged—they can lose their “rechargeability”—if they are discharged to the TSG 601 threshold for
disposable batteries. Be sure to select the correct Battery Type.
The Diagnostic Menu
To enter the diagnostic menu, hold the Lock Out button down while
pressing the ON button. To exit the diagnostic menu and resume normal operation, press any of the rectangular buttons at the top of the
keypad.
The diagnostic menu items are listed below. Use the up (Y) and
down (B) arrow keys to scroll up and down the list.

1. Auto power-down; use the left (A ) or right ( ") arrow key to
toggle between enabled and disabled.
The Auto Power Down function shuts the TSG 601 off when there
has been no key press for approximately 10 minutes, to conserve
battery charge. The Auto Power Down symbol (a rotating line) appears in the upper-right corner of the display when the function is
enabled.

Preventive Maintenance
Under average conditions, the TSG 601 should receive preventive
maintenance every 2000 hours. This is approximately one year of
operation. Preventive maintenance includes cleaning, visual inspection, a performance check and, if necessary, calibration. See the Service manual for performance verification and adjustment procedures.
CAUTION. The TSG 601 case is made of molded plastic. Do not allow
water to get inside any enclosed assembly or component. Do not
clean any plastic materials with organic cleaning solvents—benzene,
toluene, xylene, acetone, or similar compounds—because they may
damage the plastic.
