Keysight Technologies Delivers Automated Test Solution for Automotive Ethernet Receivers at 1G Speeds
New software speeds time to market with comprehensive testing needed to achieve compliance required by IEEE and OPEN Alliance.
September 26, 2019
Keysight Technologies, Inc. announces the first automated test solution for automotive Ethernet receivers (Rx) at 1G speeds, enabling Tier 1, OEM, chipset vendors and other automotive suppliers in the ecosystem, to improve time to market and achieve IEEE and OPEN Alliance compliance.
Keysight has developed a new automotive Ethernet Rx test software that verifies that information is received as intended. It performs complete bit error rate (BER) count to ensure the device-under-test (DUT) maintains a BER of less than 10-10 and meets the signal quality requirements of the IEEE Std 802.3bp and the Open Alliance 1000BASE-T1 Interoperability test suite specification. In addition, it performs an Alien Crosstalk Noise Rejection test, which saves hours with an automated test of IEEE and required OPEN Alliance compliance specifications, as well as the following:
- a wizard for quick setup, configuration and test;
- easy calibration of the test set up;
- quick interaction with DUT, as well as required receiver tests; and
- built on functional and multipurpose hardware, Keysight 81160A Arbitrary waveform generator, which can be fully used for other tasks and tests when not actively on.
Keysight’s Automotive Ethernet solutions suite provides the hardware, software, cables and accessories needed to enable compliance tests.
