Claiming to be the first to introduce such a system, Rohde & Schwarz continues to participate actively in the OPEN Alliance, using its expertise to help drive the development of complete and reliable test systems.
The flexibility of Automotive Ethernet makes the simple twisted-pair network technology ideal for an ever-increasing range of in-vehicle networks. The new IEEE 10BASE-T1S standard expands the range of applications supported by Automotive Ethernet to include integrating simple devices into the network.
As also for other Ethernet standards, the RTO-K89 and RTP-K89 compliance test software for 10BASE-T1S includes pictorial instructions to guide users through the measurements step by step. Both, the oscilloscopes and the ZND network analyzer are automatically configured. The test results are documented in a pdf-format test report. The complete compliance test system also includes a test fixture, simplifying connecting the 10BASE-T1S interface to the test setup.
With this new addition, Rohde & Schwarz will be able to supply a complete portfolio for testing all available Automotive Ethernet standards (10BASE-T1S, 100BASE-T1, 1000BASE-T1) and for all other standard automotive buses (LIN, CAN, CAN-FD, FlexRay and CXPI). The RTO and RTP oscilloscopes offer comprehensive, yet compact test solutions for ECU development testing for all automotive bus interfaces and internal interfaces such as PCIe, or DDR.
