An interoperability test platform for Automotive Ethernet has been introduced by RUETZ SYSTEM SOLUTIONS. This IOP tester operates within the framework of compliance tests for Automotive Ethernet. The test platform constitutes a component of the test set-up for Open Alliance Layer 1 interoperability tests for ECUs.
The IOP tester allows the verification of ECUs for interoperability with other ECUs for Layer 1, based on (100BASE-T1 / OABR).
It offers an open application programming interface (API) and, so, is easy to integrate into existing test systems.
Users can create their own tests and test sequences. Measurements of link-up time, signal quality and cable diagnosis belong within the scope of testing.
The IOP tester is a component of the compliance verification process at RUETZ SYSTEM SOLUTIONS. The standardised test methods for Automotive Ethernet combine the new automotive standards with existing reliable and stable systems.
Therefore, for component and ECU verification, the compliance verification process provides the necessary system and simplifies the introduction to this technology for new carmakers and suppliers.
