LVDS Video Signal Generator Plug-in Datasheet

The Tektronix LVDS Video signal generator plug-in enhances the capabilities of either the AWG5200 Series Arbitrary Waveform Generators or the SourceXpress® application software, adding the ability to easily create FPD-Link (Flat Panel Display Link) high-speed digital video interface waveforms to generate known-good signals, with the channel counts and data rates you need, to thoroughly test LVDS FPD-Link devices.

Key features
  • Turns your AWG into an FPD-Link pattern generator.
  • Import user-defined bitmap files and easily generate FPD-Link signaling, in the AWG’s native waveform format, to test your device.
  • Supports 6 to 10 bits encoding.
  • Supports user-defined: Sync, Blanking, Horizontal Front Porch (HFP), Horizontal Back Porch (HBP), Vertical Front Porch (VFP), Vertical Back Porch (VBP), Active Video.
  • Supports JEIDA and VESA formatted packets.
  • Offline Mode
    • Designed to also run on an external PC via the SourceXpress PC application, thereby reducing the time taken to synthesize large waveforms and leaving the instruments free for continued testing.
  • Seamless transition between design and playback.
    • The easy to use graphical user interface integrates seamlessly with the user interfaces of the SourceXpress PC application and the Tektronix AWG70000 series and AWG5200 series generators.
  • Designed for integration for automated test or manufacturing.
    • Programmatic Interface allows for integration into existing workflows.


Low voltage differential signaling (LVDS), or LVDS Video, is used in the FPD-Link, a high-speed digital video interface. The FPD-Link is used in applications such as:

  • Flat Panel Display functional testing.
  • Flat Panel Display manufacturing testing and servicing.


  • Plug-in installed with SourceXpress on PC:
    • SourceXpress software version 6.1 or greater
    • PC operating systems: Windows 7 (64 bit), Windows 8 (64 bit), Windows 10 (64 bit)
  • Plug-in installed on compatible instruments:
    • AWG5200 Series, firmware version 6.1 or greater
