Testing Automotive Ethernet ECU Conformance and Interoperability



Ethernet is now used to integrate diverse connected-car technologies on the same platform. Apart from being cheaper and standardized, Ethernet is also light-weight compared to the specialized cables—reducing automobile weight and contributing to fuel economy. However, the cost and adverse impact of non-interoperability can be immense. It is very likely that certain issues can escape production testing since all kinds of real-life scenarios are often difficult to comprehend and reproduce in house testing. Ixia’s IxANVL, provides an extensive coverage of the latest Automotive Ethernet standardized conformance test cases. These tests are field-proven and have been used to validate numerous devices in the past 20 years.
