The WFM601 i provides a comprehensive set of tools for analysis of the serial digital signal transport layer. A new, wide bandwidth, Eye Pattern display provides a clear indication of the digital signal channels analog performance. Digital signal level and jitter can be measured in accordance with proposed SMPTE recommendations, assisted by time and voltage cursors.
Format checking and reporting is expanded over the WFM601. Format violations are sensed and clearly reported, and when the EDH signal is present, digital errors in the active or full field picture are reported. A CRC checksum is provided for manufacturing environments where it is common to use fixed pattern test signals to confirm the digital integrity of signal processing products.
The WFM601i compliments the WFM601 Serial Digital Component Monitor. The WFM601i adds digital transport layer information for the more technical user.
