Electric Vehicle Charging Discovery System (CDS)

Both development and increased sales of electric vehicles (EV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) depend on the expansion and utilization of the charging infrastructure and electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE). Due to the relatively recent standards and the resulting lack of experience in the field, faults in the interaction of EV and EVSE can be observed frequently. 

Keysight's Charging Discovery System (CDS) is a modular solution for the conformance and interoperability test of EV and EVSE charging interfaces. The CDS modular design can be configured to customers' specific needs for testing and validating the charging interface of electric vehicles and charging infrastructures.

 This seminar will include three separate CDS demos:

  1. Charging Station Test (EVSE)
  2. Electric Vehicle Test (EV)
  3. "Man-in-the-Middle" Test (Interface)

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
