Spotlight On Automotive & Connected Vehicles
Automotive Radar Testing
Radar sensors do have a direct influence on the automobile’s steering and control system and therefore need to be comprehensively tested in production. Rohde & Schwarz supplies reliable equipment with a small footprint to help you manage the challenges of automotive radar production lines.
Steering Clear: Vehicle-To-Everything Designs With Seamless Communication And No Interference

Enhancing vehicle-to-everything (V2X) and bringing it to market is often a top priority for car manufacturers because of safety and communication benefits for the consumer. However, to design a robust system solution, we need to first understand the intricacies and challenges of V2X.

Automotive Pulse Test Solution

One of the most severe threats to automobile electronics is air traffic control radar, which can expose vehicles to high-strength pulsed fields. Over the years, manufacturers have developed automobile OEM specifications to test the susceptibility of electronics to these threats.

New Low-Loss, Ultra Stable High-Capacitance MLCCs For Power Electronics

Knowles' newest line of multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) built with Hiteca™ delivers high-capacitance stability over high temperature and voltage as well as lower parasitic losses under common operating conditions.

Industry Insights
High-Performance Integrated 24 GHz FMCW Radar Transceiver Chipset

The ADF5904 is designed for multichannel receiver, high-frequency applications that use digital beamforming, such as automotive ADAS radar, microwave radar sensors, and industrial radar system environments, where energy efficiency is becoming a more important system-level design consideration. 

mmWave Automotive Radar And Antenna System Development

This application note discusses some of the challenges in the development of millimeter-wave (mmWave) radar systems, as well as antenna arrays for next-generation smart cars and trucks.

Automotive Ethernet: See The True Signal

This white paper discusses automotive Ethernet, full-duplex communication, the need to separate master and slave signals, signal separation testing methodologies, and a comparison of the current directional coupler insertion method and the Tektronix new signal separation method.
