Remote control via LAN
Every R&S®ATSI100 module is equipped with an Ethernet LAN interface. The modules can therefore be installed exactly where the individual test signals are needed – and still be remote-controlled and monitored from a central control PC via a standard LAN connection.
Onboard power amplification
This ideally meets the requirements of the automobile industry.
The RF power amplification included in every module ensures high output levels. As there is no need for additional external amplifiers, antennas can be connected directly to the module.
Built-in test equipment (BITE) is very important for reliable testing. Therefore, the internal operating state of each module is permanently checked by selftest routines. Malfunctions are reported to the system controller via the LAN connection.
Radiated signal survey
In addition to continuous internal selftesting, all radiated test and environmental signals are analyzed on the air interface using the R&S®ATSI100 monitor module and sensor antennas. Any RF level variation can instantly be detected and compensated by readjusting the output level of the affected module. This closed-loop control ensures the integrity of the entire system.
Module configuration software
As standard, every R&S®ATSI100 module comes with its specific module configuration software. With this intuitive graphical user interface, the modules can be operated using a static configuration. Only a Microsoft Windows based PC as well as a LAN connection between the PC and the R&S®ATSI100 module are required.
In case of a failure, a defective module can easily be replaced by a spare module without interrupting the rest of the R&S®ATSI100 system. The previous configuration can be written to the new module by the R&S®ATSI100 software.
Interface to process control systems
For easy integration of the R&S®ATSI100 system into the production process control system, the R&S®ATSI-K1 to R&S®ATSI-K12 options offer the appropriate interfaces.
Future-ready and economical enhancement
Upcoming broadcasting standards can be easily integrated into the infotainment test by adding a specific function module.
As a quality assurance system, the R&S®ATSI100 can provide identical test conditions and thus yield comparable test results on different production lines and at different sites.
