Main features

The continuous increase of connected and autonomous cars becomes in a massive use of different protocols like Ethernet, CAN, LIN, Flex-Ray, for in-vehicle communication. To assure the functionality of these protocols, Emdep has developed a cost-effective, low test-time and fully integrated SOLUTION in standard manufacturing environment, under the requirements of OPEN Alliance and IEEE’s definitions for Automotive Ethernet testing.

Until now, ethernet test could only be performed by using expensive laboratory equipment with special connecting modules and for a small quantity of cables (sampling). Emdep is offering the solution to integrate in the same station twisted pair and electrical test, allowing the test of 100% ethernet cables in manufacturing environment.

  • Afordable solution for High Speed data testing.
  • Each Emdep Unit has 8 ports and is ready to test up to 2 twisted pairs.
  • Measuring all twisted pairs in parallel in a sweep lasting less than 10 seconds, reducing the test time.
  • Multiple test ports eliminate the need to switch between the test fixtures.
  • Adheres to Open Alliance and IEEE standard definitions for Automotive Ethernet testing.
  • Able to test other protocols like Coaxial Cables or CAN by using Open/Short Method.
  • Emdep offers a Cost-effective Solution for Automotive Ethernet Test Fully integrated in standard Test Boards.
  • Standard pneumatic modules 100% compatibles with the current Test Boards
  • Software running in Wintestem. Similar screens for operators and programmers.
  • The Software plots the result of every individual measurement: IL, RL, LCL, LCTL & TDR for a deep analysis of the data and fully traceability
