Automotive and Energy Revolution

The automotive industry continues embracing its electronic technology revolution, further fusing with the energy ecosystem. By 2020, 90% of cars will be connected and by 2030, 30% will be electric. Dramatic increases in the number of sensors and applications in new automobiles have evolved the vehicle from an IoT endpoint to a network edge hosting clusters of connected IoT devices. Car electrification has grown from simple batteries to complete self-contained power grids. Car networks need to be optimized for power efficiency — sensors, communications, centralized processing, and power conversion — along with higher throughput data connectivity and enhanced security.

We help ensure complete vehicle systems work reliably, conform to standards, and provide the needed safety and security through our comprehensive automotive and energy solutions.

Ensure Better Safety in Autonomous Driving Environments

As automotive connectivity increases, the vehicle becomes subject to possible security attacks. Intrusion testing for the telematics electronics control unit (ECU) helps detect where vulnerabilities might exist. Keysight helps by delivering penetration testing into the telematics unit of a car, which increasingly has a Wi-Fi/LTE connection that enables a driver to unlock the car, turn on the engine, and do over-the-air (OTA) software updates. Perform additional security testing with BreakingPoint on OEM private clouds providing data services such as maps, traffic, and weather updates for their connected cars and autonomous cars.

Automotive and Energy Seminar Series

This series will cover a broad range of subjects including debug/validate high-speed digital automotive interfaces; cellular and Wi-Fi multimode for automotive applications; automotive ethernet debug and compliance; high-speed power electronics; power converter design and test; understanding the power integrity ecosystem; EMC compliance and the connected car; and automotive radar testing.

Automotive Material Science

Automotive batteries and components are mission critical. As they are subject to harsh operating and environmental effects, it is crucial that material science supports the needs of these components to withstand a myriad of physical and chemical wear and tear parameters.

Empower the future of vehicle electrification technology

Renewable and sustainable energy is becoming an important consideration as the world’s demand for energy continues to rise. Energy efficiency determines the success of your innovations, whether you are doing R&D on new smart grid technologies, testing for electric vehicles, manufacturing batteries, or enabling the power semiconductor devices that regulate many of these innovations.
