Agilent Technologies Inc. has expanded its DisplayPort test solution for design, characterization and debug, as well as compliance testing for source and sink. This enables engineers to speed up the development cycle and time-to-market of new PC display designs, said the company.

Agilent offers a DisplayPort test solution for source and sink test, comprised of the DSO80804B Infiniium oscilloscope and the E4887A TMDS signal generator. In addition, the company has submitted a method of implementation (MOI) to the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) for source and sink compliance tests as described by the Compliance Test Specification (CTS).

The DSO80804B Infiniium oscilloscope and E4887A TMDS signal generator DisplayPort source and sink test solution include a comprehensive source and sink design and characterization test capability, investment protection of TDMS signal generator for both HDMI and DisplayPort testing, and faster compliance testing with source and sink method of implementation.

DisplayPort is a new digital interface standard driven by VESA, an organization comprised of leading companies in the High Definition Digital Display industry. VESA has established a comprehensive compliance test program for DisplayPort that includes product certification at independent third-party test houses for PHY and link layer compliance testing. PHY test is comprised of source, sink and cable (media) test detailed in the DisplayPort CTS.

Pricing starts at $93,000 for the DSO80804B Infiniium oscilloscope DisplayPort source test solution. The DisplayPort stressed signal generator is based on the Agilent E4887A TMDS signal generator with prices starting at $130,000.

The products are available today.
