he 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. With the first compliance test solution available for testing device-compliance to 10BASE-T1S, Rohde & Schwarz continues to lead the way as the test and measurement supplier for automotive Ethernet standards.
Rohde & Schwarz introduces the first 10BASE-T1S compliance test available, for the R&S RTO and R&S RTP oscilloscopes, which will provide fully automated testing conforming to the current version of IEEE 802.3cg 10BASE-T1S interfaces. Rohde & Schwarz continues to participate actively in the OPEN Alliance, using its expertise to help drive the development of complete and reliable test solutions.
As also for other Ethernet standards, the new R&S RTO-K89 and R&S 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 R&S ZND network analyzer are automatically configured. The test results are documented in a pdf-format test report. The complete compliance test solution 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 R&S RTO and R&S 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.
