Tektronix, Inc. (www.tek.com), the leading manufacturer of oscilloscopes in the world, has announced its full support for a Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) compliance test solution that allows seamless analysis and testing from the MHL PHY layer to the link layer and back.
Ideal for the company’s DPO/DSA/MSO70000 Series Oscilloscopes, this innovative one-box solution is anchored on the MHL Compliance Test Specification (CTS) 1.1 launched in June 2011. Developed by the MHL Consortium, the test solution’s specification is a digital audio and HD video interface for connecting portable devices and mobile phones to HDTVs as well as on other home entertainment products.
“We are starting to see growing interest in MHL technology around the world,” said Roy Siegel, General Manager of Oscilloscopes at Tektronix.
“As a Contributor to the MHL standard we are staying connected to MHL founding members and customers developing early MHL-based devices, which has enabled us to move quickly to provide a complete MHL test solution for transmitter, receiver/adapter, cable and MHL protocols.”
The MHL Protocol Analyzer software leverages similar Tektronix real-time scope utilized for physical layer testing to deliver a unique MHL protocol solution that allows seamless transition between the physical layer and the link layer.
Judy Chen, Director of Marketing and Business Development for the MHL Consortium, commented, “With high-definition video and audio content being increasingly used in mobile devices, the MHL interface offers a simple and compelling way for consumers to experience their mobile devices.”
“By providing fully automated testing support for MHL technology, Tektronix is improving the design validation process and the overall time-to-market for MHL-enabled products.”
