With automotive ethernet becoming increasingly more important in a car’s communication network, Keysight has unveiled a total of five new automotive Ethernet solutions designed to help automotive design and test engineers to release products faster and according to the required Automotive Ethernet specifications with easy-to-use conformance testing.
Among the innovations unveiled is the suite of BroadR-Reach, 100Base-T1 and 1000Base-T1 compatible automotive Ethernet bundles—providing automated set-up and testing for Tx, link segment and Rx connectivity and protocol decoding.
According to the announcement, “the new automotive Ethernet electrical compliance solutions perform a complete set of electrical tests to meet the BroadR-Reach, 100Base-T1and/or 1000Base-T1 specifications.”
“Automotive Ethernet is increasingly more important as a backbone to a car’s communication network. Safety standards and increased consumer communication demands require the automotive industry to add more applications with ever-increasing complexity for connectivity to networks. Faster data transfer times and more reliable networks demand that the backplane be lighter, faster and more robust than before. Car manufacturers, OEMs and chipset vendors in the automotive industry are looking to automotive Ethernet as a replacement for the aging media oriented systems transport (MOST) bus”, the company noted.
These automotive Ethernet test software packages automatically execute tests and display the results in a flexible report format. In addition to the measurement data, the report provides a margin analysis that shows how closely the devices passed or failed each test.
