Anritsu Expands Test Portfolio Supporting Technologies Used in Automotive Radar Systems

Richardson, TX – October 23, 2017 – Anritsu Company, the U.S. subsidiary of Anritsu Corporation, has signed a collaboration agreement with Keycom Corp. whereby Anritsu will serve as an exclusive representative of Keycom’s Radar Test Systems (RTSs) and Emblem Evaluation Systems (EESs) in the Americas. The agreement allows Anritsu to provide automobile companies, automotive radar manufacturers, and emblem and radar cover makers with a comprehensive test portfolio to verify automotive radar components and systems.

The collaboration continues Anritsu’s commitment to provide test solutions for the design and manufacturer of connected cars and autonomous vehicles that incorporate electronic systems, telematics and driver assistance devices. Complementing the Keycom systems are Anritsu test solutions for high frequency testing, including millimeter wave bands used in automotive radar. The test portfolio can be used by engineers during R&D and production of high-performance systems used in collision avoidance systems and other autonomous vehicle technologies.

“Adding Keycom products to our test portfolio enables us to better serve automotive radar suppliers implementing advanced safety systems in vehicles. Their industry-leading RTSs and EESs complement our test solutions and allow us to provide the automotive marketplace with accurate and efficient test solutions to verify automotive radar performance,” stated Paul Innis, Vice President and General Manager, Anritsu Company.

Keycom’s multifunctional RTSs verify radar distance and speed in a controlled indoor environment. The Keycom EESs verify that emblems perform according to specification. These systems interface with Anritsu’s spectrum analyzers and power meters to conduct frequency and power measurements, respectively. Anritsu signal analyzers integrated with high-performance waveguide mixers and vector network analyzers (VNAs) are also used for automotive radar applications.

Anritsu will begin representing Keycom products within the Americas customer base immediately. Cory White, Anritsu North America Connected Devices Business Development Manager, will lead the initiative. Anritsu (booth #12003) and Keycom (booth #9002) will be displaying RTS at the Automotive Testing Expo, October 24-26, 2017 in Novi, MI.
