Real-world interference impairment solution for connected car developers

LinkedIn +

Spirent Communications has introduced a new solution to reduce the time and cost needed to develop automotive Ethernet BroadR-Reach systems for connected cars and other vehicles.

The Spirent AING-5000 reduces the time to develop systems that are resilient to interference, by creating and customizing a variety of real automotive noise conditions, which developers can use repeatedly to optimize their designs.

The AING-5000 creates continuous background noise, electromechanical switching-impulsive events, and other radio-frequency interference. These noise conditions/types are problematic and testing ECUs against these real world conditions has become a necessity for systems development. It can also be very costly and time consuming if a physical EMC chamber is the only verification tool available.

The Spirent AING-5000 comes pre-packaged with a set of baseline real-world measured noise events specifically designed to test automotive BroadR-Reach Ethernet. These can also be adjusted by the user to create specific interference signals. It also offers a high impedance unit for injecting noise into two-wire automotive cabling.
