The CTS Version 1.4. is the latest version of the Compliance Test Specification which contains technical criteria and tests that all HDMI-enabled products must satisfy.
The Simplay CEC Explorer SL 309 Development Tool helps design engineers develop, simulate and debug all aspects of CEC (Consumer Electronics Control)/CDC (Capability, Discovery and Control) functionality in real time, and includes a powerful GUI (Graphical User Interface) that allows engineers to interface with their own product prototype by exercising and monitoring CEC/CDC performance. This test solution enables manufacturers and testing facilities to ensure interoperability and to meet the required HDMI Specification Version 1.4 CEC/CDC compliance verification.
“We believe that no other development tool in the market today handles both CEC and CDC, and has the range of capabilities as the Explorer SL 309.
