R&S AREG100A automotive radar echo generator – the reliable and future-proof production tester for automotive radar sensors
As essential components for autonomous driving, radar sensors help keep road users safe. With each stage on the way to fully autonomous driving, the number of radar sensors per vehicle rises significantly. Both OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers need reliable test solutions, suitable for mass production, for the large number of safety-related radar-based driver assistance systems. Rohde & Schwarz developed the new R&S AREG100A automotive radar echo generator in close cooperation with the automotive industry. The T&M expert put its decades of experience in millimeterwave technology into designing a test and measurement product precisely tailored to the automotive industry's test requirements.

The Tektronix USB2.0 compliance test application (Opt. 5-CMUSB2) running on a 5 Series MSO oscilloscope provides a one-button pre-compliance testing for USB2.0 devices, hosts, and hubs. The USB software automates the compliance tests as specified by the USB-IF and allows engineers to perform the required electrical tests efficiently and reliably right at their bench before going for a compliance testing and certification at a USB workshop or a test house.

PRISM Firmware Release - V1.6.0
August 06, 2018
PRISM Firmware Release - V1.6.0 admin Mon, 08/06/2018 - 11:21

The new features introduced with firmware version 1.6 enable users to:* Monitor a variety of IP statistics using comprehensive SMPTE2110 measurement sets: SMPTE2110-10: PTP and RTP-Timestamp based “Stream timing” measurements SMPTE2110-20: RTP layer monitoring and Video decoding SMPTE2110-21: Network compatibility model / Virtual receiver buffer model simulation SMPTE2110-30: RTP layer monitoring and Audio decoding SMPTE2110-40: RTP layer monitoring SMPTE2022-7: Seamless packet reconstruction and Path 1 / 2 timing difference measurements* Control the instrument from system management software using NMOS (IS-04/IS-05), SDP Viewer (RFC4566), and API to discover, register, configure inputs, and select the active input for monitoring* Ensure proper SMPTE 2022 and 2110 redundant system operation using seamless switching* Test new or changing facility configurations using optional SDI and ST2110 IP signal generators (Option MP-GEN)* Detect IP packet errors, monitor the packet inter arrival time (PIT), and time stamped delay factor (TS-DF) for ST 2022-6 to allow engineers to observe issues that may cause intermittent loss of Video, Audio, or Data* Adjust trace and graticule brightness using the intensity controls in the display settings* Adjust magnification of the trace in the Vector application using Gain in the settings menu* Verify wide color gamut compatibility using 3D LUT in the Picture application
