Full-vehicle antenna testing

Full-vehicle antenna testing

Custom solutions for vehicle antenna testing and verification

Modern vehicles feature a multitude of antennas for different technologies. Placed at various locations inside and outside the vehicle, these high-performance antennas enable connectivity for features such as satellite navigation (GNSS), Wi-Fi, UWB (RKE) and cellular services (eg C-V2X) among many others.

All of these high-performance antennas require full-vehicle antenna testing, not only to ensure their proper positioning, reduce wiring and save costs, but also to ensure optimal radiation patterns and reduce electromagnetic interference (EMI).

Rohde & Schwarz offers customized full vehicle antenna test systems and services that meet even the most demanding applications and are relied upon by vehicle manufacturers around the world.

Your testing challenges

Your testing challenges

Component suppliers and vehicle manufacturers require detailed testing of integrated antennas to ensure optimal radiation patters and safe and reliable operation of all a vehicle’s wireless technologies. This is particularly demanding because the shape and material of a vehicle influences the performance of antennas.

The antenna performance needs to be verified in a controlled RF environment, such as an indoor EMC test chamber that provides over-the-air (OTA), full-vehicle and real-world scenario testing.

Poster: Design with EMI in mind. Test early. Test often

Solving EMI problems early in the design cycle is more cost-effective than solving them later. This is an iterative process of employing best practices and checking. Of course, it is a trade-off – and needs to be balanced against functionality and scheduling. But solving problems and verifying early helps reduce costs. This poster helps you to design with EMI in mind.
