The TPA-EAC-4R is a new Test Point Adapter (TPA) that lets you test the HDMI Ethernet Channel (HEC) and (or) the Audio Return Channel (ARC) features of HDMI 1.4 capable source and (or) sink devices. When used with the 882EA, you can emulate devices that support HEC and ARC functionality. In this case, the 882EA initiates, interacts with, and monitors CEC bus Capability Discovery and Control (CDC) commands and automatically controls the HEC and ARC circuits of the TPA.
|Test ARC-capable HDTVs. Test ARC-capable HDTVs in common mode or single mode. Breaks S/PDIF out for analysis by 882EA or optional third party instrument. 882EA activates ARC through 882EA ARC control commands over the CEC bus.|
|Test ARC-capable AV receivers. Test ARC-capable AV receivers in common mode or single mode. TPA-EAC-4R converts S/PDIF from 882EA into Audio Return Channel content and transmits to AV receivers over HDMI 1.4. 882EA activates audio return channel through ARC control commands over the CEC bus.|
|Test HEC-capable sink devices. TPA-EAC-4R converts Ethernet ping from 882EA or Ethernet stream from optional third party device and transmits HEC over HDMI 1.4. 882EA activates HEC through CDC commands over the CEC bus.|
|Test HEC-capable source devices. TPA-EAC-4R accepts HDMI 1.4 signal with HEC and breaks out Ethernet for connection and testing with third party Ethernet analyzer. 882EA activates HEC through CDC commands over the CEC bus.|
