Car radio testing

Ensuring the quality and functionality of car radios around the globe

It is essential that developers include all broadcasting signals and interferer sources in any comprehensive test scenario. With its range of signal generators, Rohde & Schwarz can meet the demands of creating scenarios, simulating complex interference in broadcast and cellular standards, in-cabin interference, and diversity of audio/video reception with the latest broadcast standards.

Rohde & Schwarz solutions ensure complex simulations of all "on air" signals. As a result, developers have access to signals from local public networks as well as those from other countries required for a globally valid scenario.

Be compliant

EN 303 345 describes a number of relevant mandatory test cases on radio receivers to ensure the best quality and harmonization of car radio products sold in Europe. Typical EN 303 345 scenarios include adjacent channel selectivity and blocking tests with AM, FM, digital audio broadcasting (DAB/DAB+) and digital radio mondiale (DRM) signals.

With our T&M solutions, radio tuner chipset makers, car radio manufacturers as well as OEMs can ensure full compliance with EN 303 345.
