Keysight Technologies is using its PathWave software for automated RF calibration and verification testing of the Autotalks cellular vehicle-to-everything (LTE V2X) and dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) chipsets.

The KS8328A PathWave Test Executive for Manufacturing Developer Version now supports the chipsets which are typically used in telematics control units (TCU) for wireless tracking, diagnostics, and communication to and from a connected vehicle. 

As automotive manufacturers move toward a future dominated by electric and connected vehicles, they are equipping new vehicles with multiple wireless systems. With these complex new systems, design engineers and manufacturing test engineers face increased testing complexity and more complicated, expensive, and time-consuming test and validation procedures. This is especially true of TCUs, which play an important role in vehicle safety and control and must interface with dozens of network technologies and communications protocols.

The off-the-shelf support for Autotalks chipsets automates complex calibration and verification testing to speed up development using the Keysight E6640A Wireless Test Set.

Amos Freund, Vice President of Research & Development, Autotalks, said: “This collaboration with Keysight Technologies gives our mutual customers access to a turnkey calibration and verification solution, instead of going through the costly internal development process. Keysight implemented and automated Autotalks’ calibration guidelines and optimised it for performance utilising Keysight’s equipment capabilities.”

Thomas Goetzl, Vice President and General Manager of Keysight’s Automotive and Energy Solutions, said: “This solution is a great example of our deep collaboration with Autotalks and the breath of our V2X test solutions from R&D to manufacturing. The solution abstracts the complexity of RF calibration and verification of chipsets into a simple and easy-to-use test sequence. With a software-centric approach, we enable our customers to focus on their priorities of high production throughput and high-quality products.”
