Not all HDMI cables are graded for high-temperature storage (HTS), the ability of a device to withstand high temperatures and still function as intended.
While most devices can work in different environments, overheating still remains a big issue, as it can cause thermal damage, disconnection error, screen flicker, or melt parts of the cable. Depending on your OEM requirements, BKSTEC uses a proprietary instrument to simulate all the scenarios where HDMI cables will be exposed to heat. The result is validated through the Teledyne LeCroy 780E signal generator/analyzer to simultaneously test the display and source end of a cable. In this way, BKSTEC ensures there’s no signal degradation even as heat emitted from electronic devices grows, regardless of location, environment, or application.
