Testing for the vehicles of today and tomorrow

Today’s automobiles feature more sophisticated and sensitive electronic components and systems than ever. These advances have resulted in much safer, more efficient, and more connected vehicles. They have also created new challenges for testing and verification like:

  • Debugging and verifying CAN FD, CAN, LIN, FlexRay, BroadR-Reach and MOST networks
  • High power testing for hybrid/electric vehicles
  • Verifying in-car wireless systems
  • Evaluating new components, such as MEMS sensors, LED drivers, and LEDs
  • EMI troubleshooting and testing

Your roadmap for reliable, efficient, and comprehensive automotive testing starts here.
