The rising importance of interconnectivity and wireless communications in the automotive industry has brought Anritsu to the Stuttgart show for the first time. Well established in the fast-moving chipset and smartphone testing fields, the Japanese company is presenting its portfolio of systems for simulating and testing eCall, LTE, GSM, GPS, Ethernet and other technologies.
In all cases, error-free networks are the goal. Both development testing and production line testing solutions are offered, including the recently launched MT8870A (pictured) for non-signaling product testing of infotainment head units.
Product manager, Franz-Josef Dahmen explained that Anritsu has to move extremely quickly to provide appropriate testing equipment for the wireless developments that lie ahead, such as 5G networks. Small wonder, then, that the company spends 12.5% of its test and measurement turnover of roughly US$1bn on R&D.
Anritsu is exhibiting on booth 1941 at Automotive Testing Expo 2015 Europe, which continues at Messe Stuttgart, Germany, until Thursday 18th June.
