Details

The TPA-MHL-8R is a Test Point Adapter (TPA) that allowing tests on MHL source and MHL display devices to be conducted.

Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) is a video interface derived from HDMI but targeted to provide an interface from mobile devices like smart phones to TVs or other displays. The MHL standard is designed to connect to smart phones by reusing the existing 5 pin micro-USB connector that many phones have rather than requiring a separate 19 pin HDMI connector. The MHL cable is micro-USB on the source mobile device and HDMI Type A on the other end.

Quantum Data offers a comprehensive suite of test solutions for testing MHL source and sink devices. The centerpiece of these solutions is the new test point adapter (TPA-MHL-8R) that converts MHL streams to HDMI and HDMI streams to MHL. The TPA-MHL-8R enables basic emulation, functional testing, protocol analysis as well as MHL compliance testing and HDCP compliance testing of your MHL source and sink devices. MHL source and sink compliance testing requires the Quantum Data 980 Protocol Analyzer. HDCP compliance testing requires the Quantum Data 882EA.

TPA-MHL-8R - Key Applications

  • Functional testing of MHL sources. Conduct functional testing of MHL source devices using the TPA-MHL-8R and a standard HDMI sink such as an HDTV.
  • Basic protocol testing of MHL sources. Conduct basic protocol testing of MHL source devices using the TPA-MHL-8R and an HDMI analyzer such as the Quantum Data 780 or 882EA.
  • MHL protocol analysis for source devices (CTS 1.2). View details of MHL protocol data. Monitor MHL metadata in real time or capture and store for later analysis. Requires Quantum Data 980 Protocol Analyzer.
  • MHL compliance testing for source devices (CTS 1.2). Run MHL compliance tests on MHL source devices in accordance with Section 3 of the MHL compliance Test Specification. This test series requires TPA-MHL-8R and 980 Protocol Analyzer with the MHL source compliance test suite option.
  • HDCP compliance testing for source devices. Run HDCP compliance tests on MHL source devices in accordance with the HDCP 1.2 Compliance Test Specification. This test series requires TPA-MHL-8R and 882EA with HDCP compliance test option.
  • MHL C-Bus monitoring between an MHL source and sink device. View details of MHL C-Bus transactions. Monitor in real time or capture and store for analysis. Requires the TPA-MHL-8R and the 980 Protocol Analyzer.
  • Functional testing of MHL sinks. Conduct basic verification testing of MHL sink devices using the TPA-MHL-8R and a standard HDMI source such as the Quantum Data 780 or 882E.
  • MHL compliance testing for sink devices. Run MHL compliance tests on MHL sink devices in accordance with Section 4 of the MHL compliance Test Specification. This test series requires TPA-MHL-8R, 882 and the 980 Protocol Analyzer with the MHL sink compliance test suite option.
  • HDCP compliance testing for sink devices. Run HDCP compliance tests on MHL sink devices in accordance with the HDCP 1.2 Compliance Test Specification. This test series requires TPA-MHL-8R and 882EA with HDCP compliance test option.
