Automotive applications such as ADAS are driving in-vehicle network speeds higher, bringing a challenge to car manufacturers and component suppliers to ensure correct performance of the communication channel and avoid EMI issues.
Test and measurement specialist Rohde & Schwarz, together with connector and cable assembly manufacturer Rosenberger have successfully demonstrated compliance testing for MultiGBASE-T1 supporting 2.5/5/10GBASE-T1 automotive Ethernet speeds, based on the OPEN Alliance TC9 working group test specification.
This development enables vehicle manufacturers and component suppliers to have confidence in the performance of future, high-speed in-vehicle networks.
During the successful demonstration, Rosenberger provided a fully-shielded H-MTD® cable assembly and a pair of matching RPC-2.92-measurement-adapters with Rohde & Schwarz supplying the R&S ZNB8 4-port vector network analyzer. The performance of all individual components as well as the whole link segment was tested against the new TC9 specification and verified as compliant.
“Our Test & Measurement division supported the development of the Rosenberger H-MTD® interface with necessary measurement fixtures and accessories, which allows us not only to deliver highest quality products, but also to accurately verify the electrical properties of each single component. Our customers will benefit from the most innovative and flexible single pair system today, which is also expected to be a global standard for automotive high-speed data transmission. We are pleased to work with Rohde & Schwarz measurement instruments, and we appreciate their support in order to drive innovation with and for our customers.”
