6G HDMI/MHL Audio and Video Generator/Analyzer

Optimized for HDMI 2.0 and can be used in production lines to verify HDCP support

SL-881 6G HDMI/MHL Audio and Video Generator/Analyzer

The SL-881 6G Handheld HDMI/MHL Audio and Video Generator (SL-881 AVG) is designed for testing source, sink, or repeater devices, and is compliant to the latest HDMI® 2.0a and MHL® 3.x specifications. The SL-881 AVG can be used either to generate audio and video test patterns, or when equipped with optional features operate as a generator/analyzer to validate HDMI 2.0a Compliance Test Specification (CTS) test IDs for Status and Control Data Channel (SCDC) signals. With its 4.3 inch color touch screen display and user friendly GUI, the SL-881 AVG is easy to use and is designed to expedite HDMI 2.0a- and MHL 3.x-compliant product development.

Faster time-to-market and lower development costs are what sets leaders apart from the competition. R&D teams must prioritize development cycles to work on functions such as CEC that will make products superior in the marketplace. Simplay Labs understands every aspect of CEC systems development – including hardware, software, integration and deployment. Our CEC R&D systems let you focus on the work that matters.

CEC Explorer Version Features

HDMI CEC Compliance Test Suite (CTS)

  • HDMI CTS: Fully compliant test cases (HDMI CEC CTS v1.4) that allow compliance testing on the DUT
  • Summary Report for CTS Test: Itemizes each test case and records the test results

HDMI CEC Debug, Simulation and Emulation Suite

  • HPD and 5V dialog to set and to read physical address
  • CEC Command Message History: Captures all CEC commands and determines the interaction among different CEC devices on the same bus line
  • Saves and loads CEC command message history including pulse graph
  • CEC Command Pulse Graph: Shows each CEC command in digital waveform, along with timing analysis information
  • Built-in CEC Checking Tool: Checks validity of any CEC command, highlights timing violation as well as incorrect CEC commands, shows meaning of operands
  • Detailed CEC Command Logging: Allows software developers to examine the DUT behavior with other CEC devices with the capability to record all CEC commands from various CEC devices on the same bus line
  • Pulse Editor: Allows timing modification to any CEC command so the developers can test the timing tolerance for specific CEC commands on a DUT
  • Follower Auto Response Programming: Sets the tool to respond to certain CEC commands
  • Customized Scripting Interface: Allows developers to come up with unique test cases for specific CEC testing requirements
  • Sending all specified CEC commands via menue from any CEC logical address to any CEC logical adress
  • Min, max, random and user-defined bit timing setting for start bit, bit timing, acknowledge and AOM
  • Pass-through mode logs all CEC commands on the CEC bus without interaction
  • Ethernet Connection: Uses either DHCP mode for easy connection within corporate network, or fixed IP mode for direct connection between Explorer and a PC
