Cable validator

<< < (3/3)

Total Phase are known to make quality gear, so I would not have a reason to think that the cable tester is dodgy

Like others have said, signal integrity at higher frequencies is tricky to test and I am fairly sure they would be using the correct eye diagram limits. What I will add is that cable SHIELD plays a key role in signal integrity, and what you will find with chapter cables is that the SHILED does not have a good RF bond to the connector body. For example with cheap HDMI cables the bond would usually be via a single strand of wire to the connector SHIELD (like a pig tail), which is not ideal as it becomes a high inductance path effectively reducing EMI resilience
