Ixia Enters the Automotive Ethernet Market with a New AUTOSAR Standards Compliant Test Solution

July 2, 2014 by Ixia Blog Team

The need for automotive Ethernet is increasing as infotainment and ADAS systems make a huge impact on the car passenger experience. As these systems become more prevalent, standards will be necessary to ensure the performance and safety of the entire vehicle, and Ixia’s test solutions help ensure these standards are met by the automotive manufacturers.

The automotive industry has effectively agreed upon AUTOSAR, an open and standardized automotive software architecture that was jointly developed by automobile manufacturers, suppliers and tool developers, as the standard for automotive software and network infrastructures. AUTOSAR has defined support for Ethernet and TCP/IP for communications between ECUs in vehicles, and Ixia recently joined AUTOSAR and is committed to help shape network testing in the automotive industry as it moves forward.

Ixia announced today that it has introduced a new AUTOSAR standards compliant suite to test in-vehicle Infotainment and advanced driver assistance systems for the connected car. Ixia’s IxANVL (Automated Network Validation Library) Automotive Conformance and Interoperability test solution leverages Ixia’s deep knowledge of testing IP/Ethernet systems to help drive the evolution of the rapidly growing automotive Ethernet market.

IxANVL leverages 20+ years of experience in the IT and telecom domains as well as familiarity working with car manufacturers to provide the test methodologies required for comprehensive automotive Ethernet testing with features including:

  • Compliance test suite for AUTOSAR specifications and standard
  • Support for the IEEE standard based GENIVI stack interoperability
  • Test capability for UDP and TCP over both IPv4 and IPv6
  • Wide protocol coverage with hundreds of automated tests
  • Easy-to-use interface with powerful correlation and analysis.
