Keysight Technologies, Inc. has announced the Keysight E6950A eCall conformance test solution. The new test solution simulates a public safety answering point (PSAP) and uses a Keysight wireless test set and RF signal generator to emulate a cellular network to provide global navigation satellite system (GNSS) coordinates. This is required by the in-vehicle system (IVS) to compile the eCall Minimum Set of Data (MSD). The E6950A eCall conformance test solution makes it possible to verify that the IVS modem is able to trigger an emergency call, send the correct raw MSD, and establish a voice connection with the PSAP. The test solution also gives the developers the option of performing audio analysis. The test solution is capable of supporting current and legacy wireless test sets, such as the Keysight E7515A and E5515C, thus offering many existing E5515C users a cost-competitive option to repurpose existing equipment.
“Based on European legislation, all new vehicles in the EU are required to support eCall by April 2018, whereas Russia’s ERA-GLONASS is mandating comparable capabilities by Jan 2017,” said Siegfried Gross, vice president and general manager of Keysight’s Automotive and Energy Solutions business unit. “Keysight’s new eCall solution is targeted to help developers in the automotive industry enhance their capability to release conformant and high-quality eCall products, while ensuring fastest time-to-market”. Keysight will unveil the E6950A eCall conformance test solution at Automotive Testing Expo 2016, Booth 2008, Novi, Michigan, on Oct. 25.
The Keysight E6950A conformance test solution is now orderable. The basic eCall system with the E5515C wireless test set starts at $95K. The basic eCall system with the latest UXM wireless test set starts at $155K. Additional information is available at www.keysight.com/find/ecall.
