Radar target simulator features in Keysight’s automotive test release

New Products |
By Christoph Hammerschmidt

Included are the E8707A radar target simulator for fast, accurate and reliable advanced driver assistance systems test. The unit’s features include;

– Simulates automotive radar targets in the 76-77 GHz range

– Provides simulation for both the range and radar cross section.

– Minimum physical distance of 1 m between simulator and DUT, saving floor space

– Scalable and configurable with full range of 10-450 m or two fixed ranges

– Single-horn with built-in transceiver; or dual-horn with transmit and receive configurations

Also introduced is the E6950A eCall conformance test solution for end-to-end functional and standard-compliance conformance eCall module test; its features include;

– Pan European eCall support

– No external PC required as PSAP can run inside UXM

– Static and Dynamic GNSS simulation

– Optional Audio performance testing (PESQ/POLQA)


The third specific introduction is the U9403A mini in-circuit test, which aims to maximize engineers’ test coverage by combining functional test with in-circuit. The Mini ICT is a true in-circuit test unit in the rack that can be used standalone or integrated. It comes with a full set of Keysight ICT test features, from VTEP vectorless test, Cover-Extend Technology, to digital library tests and boundary scan. The unmuxed per-pin programmable digital engine makes test development really flexible and easy, especially in a situation when device conditioning is needed in functional test. Its features include;


– 5U 19 inch rack-mount form factor

– Complete analog ICT test features including VTEP v2.0

– Complete digital ICT test features including IEEE1149 boundary scan and Cover-Extend Technology

– True 1:1 per-pin programmable architecture with 500 mA driving capability

– Built-in DUT power supply control and complete discharge features

– SCPI support for VISA-based test sequencer

– Standalone and parallel in-circuit test


Keysight’s demonstration of its automotive test capabilities will also include:


– Automotive network bus testing solutions for the fastest triggering and analysis of new CXPI, BroadR-Reach automotive Ethernet, FlexRay, SPI, CAN, CAN-FD, and LIN protocols

– Smart Bench, providing a customizable combination of test software and bench test instruments to enhance electronic design productivity and innovations with cost effectiveness

– Automotive power analysis solutions for optimizing AC/DC power supply and electronic load efficiencies for vehicular electromechanical systems and EV/HEV

– Automotive power device test solutions helping electronic circuit designers maximize the efficiency, safety and reliability of automotive electrical systems
