Eye measurements on HDMI signals with the R&S VT-B2380 TMDS time domain analyzer

The high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) standard is the leading standard for the transmission of uncompressed video data within the home. To ensure that all devices using this interface work together seamlessly, the HDMI Forum has defined and compiled a series of tests in a Compliance Test Specification (CTS). These include protocol tests as well as tests of the electrical parameters for an HDMI interface. Because of the technology used for HDMI and the associated high data rates, these tests require complex and cost-intensive T&M equipment. This paper describes an efficient alternative in the form of a sampling oscilloscope. It covers the fundamental principle behind electrical testing of HDMI sources, such as those found in set-top boxes, Blue-ray players, cameras, PCs and smartphones. It additionally discusses the differences as compared to the conventional time-domain analysis methods.
