Spirent Communications announces that Spirent’s C50+TTworkbench solution has been selected by Hyundai Motor Group to verify in-car networking.
To help develop and verify its automotive Ethernet systems and determine the best Ethernet designs for its vehicles, Hyundai is using the Spirent solutions to verify the Ethernet ECUs.
With the proliferation of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), multiple cameras and containing 100 engine control units (ECUs) – Modern cars are adopting higher capacity in-car networks.
The chosen TTworkbench is touted as a full-featured integrated test development and execution environment (IDE) for any kind of test automation project.
The C50+ TTworkbench offers a variety of functions including DUT monitoring and simulation including support for all of the international standard test cases, including the OPEN Alliance test case and the AVnu Automotive test case—features that were critical for Hyundai.
The C50+ also includes newly released Protocol Conformance Test Suites for Automotive Ethernet, which can run on Spirent C1 and C50 platforms with BroadR-Reach Network Interface Cards based on Open Alliance standards.
“Spirent’s TTworkbench and its easy-to-use test environment will help Hyundai to verify that the in-car Ethernet networks are robust enough to support the advanced applications we’re starting to see in connected cars,” said Thomas Schulze, Automotive Business Development Director for Spirent. “Industries such as IT and telecommunications use Spirent’s solutions to test and verify their products and services, and our years of experience will go a long way in ensuring the automotive industry successfully builds the vehicles of the future.”
The automotive Ethernet test solution is backed through a local partnership of CANSystems to support customer for customers’ development activities around Automotive Ethernet.
