Tektronix, Inc. Key Developments

Tektronix, Inc. Brings HEVC/H.265 Support to Sentry Video Quality Monitoring Solution

Tektronix, Inc. announced a video quality monitoring solution for HEVC/H.265 encoded streams as part of the latest software release for its Sentry portfolio of video quality monitors. With this update, Tektronix delivers a scalable and comprehensive HEVC solution for monitoring quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE), and continues to expand its support for 4K/UHD across its entire portfolio of video test and network monitoring solutions. The combination of more efficient compression technologies such as HEVC and Sentry's comprehensive quality monitoring will be critical as video service providers start delivery of 4K/UHD to subscribers. These technologies ensure that services are delivered with optimum quality while reducing operational expenditures. The Sentry series of monitoring solutions are more intelligent, robust and comprehensive than traditional alternatives. These products reduce operational expense by allowing VSPs and network operators to detect critical issues in real time, typically before subscribers experience them. This, along with in-depth reporting, enables continual network improvements and helps to eliminate the main sources of trouble calls from subscribers.

Tektronix, Inc. Releases MIPI C-PHY(SM) TX Test Solution

Tektronix, Inc. announced the first commercially available oscilloscope-based solution for MIPI C-PHYSM physical layer transmitter characterization and debugging. The new solution allows engineers developing next-generation camera technologies using the C-PHY 1.0 interface to conduct in-depth analyses, debugging and characterization of their designs. The MIPI C-PHY standard presents a number of significant test and measurement challenges. The most significant is the use of three-level signaling that is transmitted as a single-ended signal over three wires. The receiver, however, sees these signals as differential. This requires a unique clock recovery mechanism to plot the eye diagram for analysis, which must work even under stressed eye conditions. Tektronix C-PHY Essentials, a new analysis and debugging software solution for C-PHY testing, fully supports the demanding C-PHY test requirements. Among the early implementers of C-PHY is OmniVision Technologies Inc. OmniVision's new OV23850 and OV21840, both being 20+ megapixel image sensors designed for the next generation of smartphones, have implemented the C-PHY interface under the current specification. Using the C-PHY Essentials analysis software, OmniVision and Tektronix were able to successfully validate and characterize the C-PHY interface used on the two new sensors. Receiver Characterization: While the C-PHY Essential software is designed for TX characterization, it can also be used by designers for receiver calibration. For receiver calibration, a user needs the ability to make various rise and fall time measurements and calibrate to a stressed eye with different impairments such as DCD as recommended by the C-PHY compliance test specification. As such, C-PHY TX analysis software can assist designers with receiver calibration through use of the eye diagram analysis function. Working with solution partner The Moving Pixel Company, the Tektronix C-PHY solution includes a four-lane C-PHY traffic generator, single-lane oscilloscope based C-PHY protocol decoder and C-PHY termination board. The traffic generator can be also used for functional validation of the receiver. The protocol decoder is the first C-PHY decoder that runs on an oscilloscope. The Moving Pixel Company also offers a four-lane termination board that supports C-PHY and D-PHY, with support for both of these PHYs on the same board.

Tektronix, Inc. Expands HDMI test solution portfolio

Tektronix, Inc. has expanded its portfolio of HDMI test solution with the addition of advanced analysis and characterization support for HDMI 2.0 receiver testing. The new HDMXpress provides complete support for HDMI test pattern generation, auto-calibration and margin testing, eliminating the needs for manual pattern creation. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) has emerged as the de-facto industry standard for transferring video data to display devices. The technology continues to evolve rapidly, creating new test and measurement challenges for designers. HDMXpress will help them to better meet these challenges and will enable new testing strategies around receiver tests, ultimately leading to improved productivity and testing efficiency. The HDMXpress software enables users to generate their own receiver test patterns quickly and easily. The tool interfaces with the TekExpress HDM application hosted on DPO70000 series Tektronix oscilloscopes and provides support for closed-loop calibration for the critical sink jitter tolerance test. It can be hosted on both AWG7000 and AWG70000 series arbitrary waveform generators. The use of direct synthesis for Rx testing reduces connection changes and avoids the need for external hardware filters and cable emulators. The product is well suited to the needs of HDMI product designers who need to perform advanced analysis and margin testing. At the same time, it supports validation and quality engineers who need to check for compliance of design prototypes and who depend on calibrated test setups prior to testing.
