Quantum Data, a worldwide provider of video test equipment and represented in Australia by TekMark Australia has announced that their 882E test instruments have been approved by VESA for DisplayPort EDID compliance testing.
The approval for 882E HDMI test generators includes compliance testing for DisplayPort sink devices against the requirements of the DisplayPort Certified Logo Program, which currently uses version 1.4 of the recently approved EDID compliance test specification.
Bill Lempesis executive director, VESA said that developers working to bring new video technologies such as DisplayPort to market required test tools to help ensure compliance.
Approval of the Quantum Data 882E test analysers for EDID compliance test was a welcome addition to this set of tools, he added.
The approved EDID compliance test solution offered by Quantum Data enables developers of DisplayPort monitors to perform EDID compliance tests. Users specify the capabilities of the monitor under test and then initiate the test series through the 882’s front panel.
When the tests are completed, the system issues a pass/fail result for each distinct Test ID. The result for each Test ID also includes the pass/fail criteria. Reports can be printed, viewed online and disseminated to other subject matter experts for analysis.
The EDID compliance test is the latest addition to a suite of DisplayPort solutions supported in 882E. The 882E test instruments have been approved by VESA for DisplayPort link layer compliance testing for both DisplayPort source and sink products.
The 882E test instruments also support link layer transaction logging, which enables developers to monitor link layer transactions in real time during normal operation or during a link layer compliance test.
