Infotainment solutions in cars are becoming increasingly complex

Automotive infotainment is generally a hardware and software platform that delivers audio and video in a vehicle. This could be, for example, car radio broadcasting, audio and video streaming via a wireless (LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth®) or wired network (HDMI, Ethernet) or even a CD or USB device.

Infotainment solutions in cars are becoming increasingly complex. Mobile internet, traffic information, navigation, digital broadcast and streaming services are all combined in one system. Each service requires its own antennas. To ensure the correct functionality each part of the infotainment system and to discover sources and effects of interference, Rohde & Schwarz offers a complete portfolio of test and measurement solutions for multimedia, audio, antennas and navigation services.
