Keysight Provides New Automotive Testing Solution for Mobile Industry CPU Interface | Company

SANTA ROSA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sept. 12, 2022–

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that provides advanced design and validation solutions to help accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced a new compliance testing solution Automotive Serializer/Deserializer (SerDes) Receiver (Rx) to verify Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) A-PHY devices against Conformance Test Specification (CTS) requirements. This solution was developed in collaboration with BitifEye Digital Test Solutions GMBH and Wilder Technologies, with the support of Valens Semiconductor Ltd. (NYSE: VLN).

Silicon vendors plan to implement MIPI A-PHY®, a long-range physical layer interface for automotive and other surround sensor applications, including cameras and in-car infotainment (IVI) displays. Manufacturers are continually improving vehicles with autonomous features and there is significant awareness that these features should improve safety conditions. Therefore, data collected by sensors and cameras must be transmitted accurately, precisely and quickly, from any silicon vendor.

Keysight’s Rx compliance test solution recreates a compliant transmitter that generates a controlled distorted (worst case) signal and analyzes the impact of the distortions on the receiver’s ability to correctly sample the transmitted data. It allows vehicle manufacturers and their suppliers, as well as automotive engineers and system integrators, to stress the receiver and validate its performance in the noisy and inherently harsh environment of a car.

“At Keysight, we recognize that it is essential to meet the growing market demands for high-speed digital interfaces for next-generation in-vehicle networks,” said Thomas Goetzl, vice president and general manager of the Automotive and Energy Solutions business unit of Keysight. “This new solution from Keysight represents another way we are supporting technology evolution and standardization for our automotive customers.”

Keysight’s Rx compliance test solution ensures digital transmission quality by measuring the receiver’s ability to recover data from a corrupted input signal, with the following key features:

  • A comprehensive test framework for identifying the margin at which a device under test (DUT) operates.
  • A custom device that couples noise to an active link to stress the receiver.
  • Accurate, repeatable results with Keysight’s Arbitrary Waveform Generator (AWG) to generate a variety of random and complex noise profiles.
  • Access to predefined noise profiles.
  • All relevant hardware, software and accessories in one model number, saving time and money.
  • Automatic report generation in full HTML or PDF format, including margin analysis.

BitifEye Digital Test Solutions GMBH offers test software that complements Keysight’s product portfolio of highly integrated and automated application-specific test systems. Keysight has partnered with BitifEye to provide the first solution capable of testing SerDes MIPI A-PHY automotive datalink receivers.

“We are excited to engage with Keysight to deliver a new way for the industry to validate receiver devices using MIPI A-PHY,” said Julien Henaut, COO, BitifEye Digital Test Solutions GMBH. “Our customers will benefit from test solutions that will enable device makers of new in-vehicle automotive networks, whether standardized or accepted, to become global standards for high-speed automotive data transmission. »
