HDMI CORNER by DPL Labs
Ultra HD Motivates
Manufacturers to Elevate
Testing & Processes
AS THE 48G transmission
becomes more mainstream,
both integrators and customers
will need to learn and
adapt. Continued HDMI 2.1
education and know-how
will be well worth having.
Passive copper transmission
lines will be limited in their
lengths, forcing anyone going
past 5 meters to move to
fiber. But don't think moving
to fiber is necessrily a slam
dunk by any means.
DPL Labs discovered
fiber issues early on from
samples sent in from Asia.
A new set of rules needs to
be exercised to successfully
build a high-performance
fiber cable with a high level
of reliability. The only way
that was going to happen
was to reach out to those
HDMI cable factories and
work with them testing and
examining different designs.
The big issue was there was
really no way for any factory
to competently verify the
multiple high-speed data
rates that comprise the
HDMI video signal envelope,
one of the most important
fundamentals in the system
impacting a successful production
outcome.
Companies needed to
develop a different approach
to engineering, and a more
sophisticated manufacturing
process. The days of testing

for continuity are over. One
can't possibly test a 6GHz
channel by way of continuity
and be satisfied it will
perform as expected in the
field. Now the package gets
a bit hotter delivering 12GHz
per channel.
A call to arms was initiated
to find and develop means
to test products on the line
that could provide a clear
Pass/Fail yield utilizing Time
tency, work environment,
well-trained work force and,
of course, instrumentation.
The first DPL Labs Affiliate
company in China is
Hailink Electronics Limited
in Dongguan. The company's
110,000-square-foot
facility houses 300 employees.
Within the five-story
complex is an in-house wire
and cable manufacturing
facility with full assembly
energy system enables the
company to operate off the
grid when power in China is
rationed.
Hailink took things anothHailink
Electronics Limited, first to earn DPL Labs' Affiliate
company certification in China, has upped its production
with state-of-the-art testing to match its modern facility.
Domain instrumentation.
Over two years of research
finally proved positive
collaborating with several
outstanding instrumentation
companies on offering a
reasonably priced package.
Now they can become a certificated
DPL Labs Affiliate
manufacturer; the prerequisites
are proving compeand
tests capable of producing
just about any type
of cable needed as well as
customization. All new with
spotless working conditions,
customized workstations,
sales and marketing
departments and, most of
all, elevators ... something
you seldom see in factories
like this. Moreover, a solar
er step advancing through
all DPL testing requirements
including the introduction
of the new test instrumentation
suite for mass
production. No longer is it
relying on TVs - now the
test operator can measure
and visually view the signal
data passing through cable
devices at extraordinary high
speeds. This upgrade will elevate
the company's output
performance and quality,
and illustrates how Hailink
and others in the region can
accelerate R&D to prevail
along with other high-speed
transmission interface
products such as USB C,
PCI Express, Lightning and
Display port.
We're seeing light at the
end of the tunnel as more
companies move toward
this level of cable production.
There are already
many branded companies
that have their products
made by Hailink and will be
able to improve with this
achievement.
