Keysight Technologies delivers automated test solution for automotive Ethernet receivers at 1G speeds

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced 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, the company said.

Autonomous vehicles promise to change the nature of commercial and passenger transportation over the roadways. Within new vehicles, data speed and bandwidth requirements are increasing. With the development of automotive Ethernet, faster data communications are possible and the increasing demands for today´s vehicles and future connected vehicles can be met. However, higher speeds can result in data loss, possible interference, and greater risk of missed packets or incorrect information.

To address this growing challenge, 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.
