Simplay Labs Releases HDMI® 2.1 Category 3 EMI Test Equipment

Santa Clara, Calif., May 1, 2020 – Simplay™ Labs, LLC, a leading provider of compliance tools, standards and interoperability testing services for consumer electronics (CE) and mobile devices, today announced its HDMI 2.1 Ultra High Speed Cable EMI tester, designed for radiated emissions testing Category 3 HDMI cables in 3/10 meter EMI test chambers.

The SL-889 meets the HDMI 2.1 Compliance Test Specification EMI test requirements for CISPR 32 radiated emissions limits as a reference tester in an EMI test chamber.

The SL-889 provides the required stimulus for EMI testing Ultra High Speed Cables by transmitting and receiving a CISPR 32 BT-1729 moving video test pattern over the range of frequencies required by the HDMI 2.1 Compliance Test Specification.

The SL-889 allows HDMI 2.1 Ultra High Speed Cables to be tested over a wide range of video resolutions from 480p60 RGB 12-bit TMDS at 40.5 MHz to 2160p60 RGB across 4-lane FRL at 12 GHz plus eARC (enhanced Audio Return Channel).

“We designed the SL-899 to perform with enough dB margins under the CISPR 32 specifications to ensure radiated emissions from the cable under test are accurately measured”, said Solomon Langley, president of Simplay Labs ATC. “In addition, we consulted with leading accredited EMI Labs in the US and Asia to confirm our design goals of ease of use and consistent measurements.”
