Solutions for Testing Cable and Connector Continuity

Automotive Test Solutions - In-Vehicle Networks

Test and Measurement Solutions for Automotive Applications

The Automotive Industry is constantly increasing the presence of technology in vehicles. In excess of 100 separate control units will be part of average modern car, all generating more and more applications for informing and entertaining the passengers. All these devices, connected with each other, are constantly sending data to central computers or displays. Anritsu's OTDR and GigE analyzer are used for ensuring the high transmission rates in all points of the in-vehicle network.

Anritsu's Site Master and Vector Network Analyzers check the proper continuity of cables and connectors.
