Keysight introduces first MHL 3 source compliance test software

Keysight Technologies, Inc. offers compliance test software for the latest Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) specification. The MHL 3 source compliance test software allows engineers to test their MHL 3 transmitters the same way they are tested at official authorized MHL compliance test centers using Keysight Infiniium oscilloscopes. The MHL 3 specification, published in August 2013, offers a significant increase in bandwidth (up to 6 Gbps) to support higher resolution and a new bidirectional high-speed communication path between the portable device and a display.

The new software offers test capabilities now required for MHL 3 transmitters, such as a dedicated TMDS lane and new functionality in the CBus, referred to now as eCBus, that includes forward and reverse transmission validation. The Keysight MHL 3 compliance software includes new features along with test suites for all previous versions of MHL, which are required to validate interoperability of MHL 3 devices.

Full MHL 3 link analysis requires Keysight’s receiver cable compliance testing solutions, including Keysight E4887A TMDS signal generators, the M8190A arbitrary waveform generator and N5990A factory automation software. The receiver compliance solution is complemented by products from Keysight’s solutions partner BitifEye. BitifEye products include test fixture and an MHL upgrade of BitifEye’s frame generator software.
