Automotive Ethernet - Next Generation Automotive Serial Bus


March 3, 2020
Agilent Technologies
5301 Stevens Creek Blvd
Santa Clara, CA 95051
Building 4 - Ramanujan Room

All versions of Automotive Ethernet require rigorous testing: IEEE 802.3bw, IEEE 802.3bp, and OABR 3.2. Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) is an extension to IEEE 802.1 that makes Ethernet deterministic, more robust, and more reliable. The specified tests covering transmitters, receivers, and harness/connector assemblies, are more complex than what most automotive engineers have done in the past. When you move to this new evolving technology with complex test requirements, be prepared.

Participate in hands-on labs to learn how to test and make critical measurements on Ethernet based designs. Keysight will show solutions to address 100Base-T1 and 1000Base-T1, electrical, protocol, and link segments based on our Infinium real-time oscilloscopes and vector network analyzers.

 After presenting a technical overview, this workshop will include three separate breakout sessions with demonstrations:

  • Breakout Session #1: Physical Layer – Time-Domain/Oscilloscope Based
  • Breakout Session #2: Physical Layer – Frequency Domain/Network Analyzer Based 
  • Breakout Session #3: Up the Stack – Capture of Live Traffic at the Higher Layer

EMC Pre-Compliance Seminars

Ensure your electronic design is EMC compliant

Our experts will walk you through the necessary steps for EMC pre-compliance testing before sending your design off to the test lab. You will receive an overview of EMC standards and the various test instruments, software, and techniques used throughout the process. The presenters will also discuss the potential economic impact of conducting EMC pre-compliance tests or not.

5G/Connected Car Seminar


8:30 a.m.

Tuesday, March 17, 2020
Indiana IoT Lab - Fishers
9059 Technology Lane
Fishers, IN 46038


Automotive safety and connectivity are experiencing a rapid transformation with the advent of vehicle-to-everything (V2X) and 5G. In this seminar, we will discuss the differences between cellular V2X (C-V2X) and dedicated short-range communications (DSRC), the opportunities 5G presents, and the measurement challenges of each.

After presenting a technical overview, this seminar will include three separate breakout sessions with demonstrations:

  • Breakout Session #1: Physical Layer and Non-Signaling Measurements (5G/LTE)
  • Breakout Session #2: 5G and C-V2X Live Signaling Measurements and Applications Layer Testing

Keysight will also highlight our new 5G/C-V2X Test-as-a-Service (TaaS) offering that is available at our Automotive Customer Center in Novi, MI.
