Keysight: BroadR-Reach, 100Base-T1, 1000Base-T1 compatible automotive Ethernet solutions

Keysight Technologies unveiled a total of five new automotive Ethernet solutions at the Automotive Testing Expo 2017. Among the innovations unveiled publicly for the first time is the suite of BroadR-Reach, 100Base-T1 and 1000Base-T1 compatible automotive Ethernet bundles—providing automated set-up and testing for Tx, link segment and Rx connectivity and protocol decoding.

Automotive Ethernet is increasingly more important as a backbone to a car’s communication network. Safety standards and increased consumer communication demands require the automotive industry to add more applications with ever-increasing complexity for connectivity to networks. Faster data transfer times and more reliable networks demand that the backplane be lighter, faster and more robust than before. Car manufacturers, OEMs and chipset vendors in the automotive industry are looking to automotive Ethernet as a replacement for the aging media oriented systems transport (MOST) bus.

Keysight’s solutions simplify the test setup and interpretation of results to validate BroadR-Reach, 100Base-T1 and 1000Base-T1 specifications for physical media attachment (PMA), physical layer solutions (PHY), and physical coding sublayer (PCS). With four different software options, Keysight offers the most comprehensive automotive Ethernet compliance solutions on the market today. All the software options automate compliance with 100 percent test coverage for all tests in the automotive physical layer BroadR-Reach,100Base-T1 and 1000Base-T1 specifications respectively.

These automotive Ethernet test software packages automatically execute tests and display the results in a flexible report format. In addition to the measurement data, the report provides a margin analysis that shows how closely the devices passed or failed each test. The automotive Ethernet electrical compliance solutions perform a complete set of electrical tests to meet the BroadR-Reach, 100Base-T1and/or 1000Base-T1 specifications:

  • Transceiver testing for BroadR-Reach V3.2 and 100Base-T1 and (IEEE 802.3bw) specifications
  • Receiver testing for BroadR-Reach V3.2 and 100Base-T1 (IEEE 802.3bw) specifications
  • Transceiver testing for 1000Base-T1 (IEEE 802.3bp)
  • Protocol Trigger & Decode for BroadR-Reach V3.2 and 100Base-T1 (IEEE 802.3bw) specifications
  • Link testing for BroadR-Reach V3.2 and 100Base-T1 (IEEE 802.3bw) specifications
