DPL Labs® is the only Test and Measurement Laboratory in the world capable of conducting these types of sophisticated high-speed digital compliance tests. Now, with the introduction of 8K and 10K resolutions, an entirely new set of standards and methodologies had to be designed to allow producers an avenue to manufacture and sell high-performance products while still maintaining reliability.
Over a decade DPL Labs® extensive participation in these areas drove Test and Measurement to levels never before utilized. The addition of historical test data and case studies elevated these test procedures to reduce interoperability conditions.
In addition, DPL Labs® capitalizes on its close alliance with each client understanding their business model prerequisites including product offerings, unique specifications, budgeting, and ROI. Product specifics can be introduced by way of types of materials, jacketing, metallurgy, and shielding techniques.
Over DPL Labs® 10 year history in this field it discovered a wide dynamic of talent levels from each of its clients. Some are more focused on Research and Development while others may be more versed in the engineering itself. Still, others share some of these attributes but tend to focus more on sales and marketing. DPL Labs® is staffed with talent that can provide support for almost any of these areas allowing each producer to have unlimited resource abilities outside of their main focus region.
As a third-party test and measurements firm DPL Labs® has complete control over test content and procedures that allow its power to shift on a dime when new problematic anomalies are discovered. Every time a discovery is identified DPL Labs® participants are notified and are encouraged to take the necessary steps to fix or adapt to each issue. DPL Labs® is there to assist each client through these challenges with each identified issue.
An entirely new suite of test equipment had to be evaluated and sampled to challenge each brand’s instrumentation offering with operating envelopes to a near 50Gbps testing environment. Evaluating equipment at this level is not like evaluating a television display. At these higher speeds, the equipment has to perform not only at record-breaking speeds but must be able to support individual test functions far beyond test processes in the past. This took years of research due to these new wide dynamics of test functions, many that never even existed before and required newly designed test processes requiring customized software and fixture interfaces. The need for an accelerated test environment became just as important as the tests themselves when considering the number of individual tests required. Here, with better than 75 individual tests, time becomes crucial. DPL Labs® testing procedures at these levels and quantities form a huge computation of values and data particular to each Device Under Test (DUT). It delivers a portrayal of each device. Every test requires a high level of scrutiny to be able to understand the entire story of each (DUT). The faster a test operator can move through these procedures the less expansive the test becomes. This eventually trickles down to the cost of each product where now lab time becomes paramount. Adapting from the old school of testing at a discrete test sequence DPL Labs® new Test At a Glance reporting software provides immediate waveform responses for each operator. This walks hand in hand with an aggressive recruiting campaign for the finest digital engineers available. DPL Labs® is committed to excellence in conducting the finest and most accurate tests possible.
