Overview:
As a display technology, DisplayPort has finding
favor in industry which is evidenced by its newer embedded and mobile variants.
DisplayPort enables a dynamic link between data source and the target display to
optimize link in terms of power consumption and bit error rate and is the reason
for its comprehensive test regimen. This presentation will briefly review the
displayport interface and then dive into the requirements for physical layer
testing from device control and fixturing, to the measurement device. Compliance
testing is emphasized but testing for characterization will also be discussed.

In this role he focuses on two key areas: Measurement Technologies and Digital
Display interfaces. The Measurement Technology focus has, over the years,
included Jitter Measurement where he led a technical team in evaluating industry
jitter measurement solutions, Equalization techniques for assessing receiver
compensation techniques, to De-Embedding and Embedding where oscilloscope
acquisitions can be transformed or filtered to reveal unavailable node
waveforms. He graduated from California Polytechnic State University at San Luis
Obispo in 1983 and completed a Masters in Electrical Engineering from the
University of Idaho in 1991. Before his current position, Brian worked on
