Renesas adopts R&S equipment for wireless communications testing

Semiconductor manufacturer Renesas Electronics Corporation has selected Rohde & Schwarz’s range of equipment to test its devices according to the IEEE 802.11p standard for implementation of wireless technologies in cars for vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications.

For analyzing 11p transmitter signals and receiver measurements, Renesas has adopted the R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer and the R&S SMW200A vector signal generator with fading capability. The test setup is said to offer excellent RF performance for development and quality acceptance testing. The integrated fading capability of the R&S SMW200A provides a unique, smart testing environment in line with the IEEE 802.11p standard.

Renesas also uses the R&S TS-ITS100 RF conformance test system, designed for standard-compliant testing of components for vehicle-to-vehicle applications and intelligent transport systems. This fully automated test system can be used throughout the entire value chain – from R&D to pre-compliance and compliance testing.

Using the well-established R&S Contest sequencer software, which was specifically developed for RF conformance tests, the R&S TS-ITS100 makes it possible to verify compliance with regional standards, such as ETSI EN 302 571 in the EU, IEEE 802.11-2012 in the USA, and the ARIB standard in Japan.

The test system also covers specific performance tests as defined by the Car-2-Car Communication Consortium (C2C-CC).
