Engineers in the automotive industry face new challenges with infotainment systems, which now introduce additional I/O like audio, video, and RF signals into systems that already have other sensor measurements. MaxEye In-Vehicle Infotainment test solution is powered by NI PXI Platform, Universal Radio Signal Generation Software and LabVIEW Add-on toolkits. NI PXI platform combined with powerful software toolkits and APIs enable engineers to perform complicated tests on the many different I/O types at the same time using one chassis.
This platform is ideal because of the modular hardware that can be reconfigured with software. For example, the same VSG/VST from NI can be used to simulate GPS signals and then be re-programmed to broadcast and simulate DVB or DAB.
- Multiple DVB/DAB/DRM Carriers signal generation using single RF hardware
- Perform Alternate Channel Selection, Channel Search, Dynamic Channel updation, Traffic Alert using single PXI chassis
- Perform Audio and Video measurements using same hardware setup used for RF signal generation
- Test Various automotive protocols like CAN, LIN, FlexRay etc
- Generate Audio, Video Broadcast signals, GPS/GLONASS Navigation signals using single PXI instrument
- Single PXI Chassis - Simple Test Setup
- Relatively simple test software architecture because all the modules are connected to the PXI controller through PXI backplane.
- Single hardware capable of generating multiple carriers and this enables tests like channel search, up/down, channel selection, Alternate Frequency tests, HMI tests etc.,
- Same PXI instrument can be upgraded with new PXI modules for specific test requirement
- Simple test setup and easy to replicate in multiple locations
- Flexible PXIe test System to provide complete end to end Infotainment Test Solution
- RF Record and Playback system (Record live broadcast signals and playback)
