1000BASE-T1 automotive Ethernet compliance testing

Webinar: 1000BASE-T1 automotive Ethernet compliance testing

This webinar will focus on 1000BASE-T1 automotive Ethernet compliance testing based on the Open Alliance (OA) TC8 specification for the physical layer. We will discuss the individual test cases for 1000BASE-T1 and look at the pitfalls that an engineer might encounter during test setup and execution.

For this video, we will be using a 2 GHz R&S®RTO oscilloscope, an 8 GHz R&S®ZND two-port VNA as well as the R&S®ScopeSuite automated test software.
