Signal generator speeds up eCall systems testing

An instrument that prepares the automotive industry and their suppliers for current and future regulations and standards regarding eCall and adjacent band interference has been unveiled by IZT. The IZT S1000 / IZT S1010 Signal Generators with the GIPSIE software combine several conventional test sources in one device and delivers highest performance.

eCall systems can be tested using the IZT S1000 / IZT S1010 Signal Generator in a combination with GIPSIE software which was developed in cooperation with TeleOrbit and TeleConsult Austria. The solution offers a compact multi-channel high-performance platform for complex and versatile testing in one device.

To ensure faster time to market and economical tests it is necessary to stimulate the IVS with standard conform GNSS signals in a laboratory to guarantee repetitive and standard conform testing.

The test scenarios are defined by the European Union Commission and they are mandatory when testing an eCall system. 

Additional to the new eCall regulations there is a new standard to safeguard GNSS-reliant devices from the impacts of adjacent band interference. This standard was created by European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).

It ensures that any new or altered GNSS product launched in the EU can withstand a level of adjacent band interference and continue to operate without interruption. These systems also need to be tested. The IZT S1000 / IZT S1010 are able to test them cost effectively without any additional equipment.
