With the R&S®AREG100A it has never been easier to monitor the quality of automotive radar sensors in mass production.

Test today’s and tomorrow’s radar sensors

  • Choose a 24 GHz ISM band frontend, an E-band frontend or both together for sequential operation
  • Profit from a future proof wideband E-band frontend with 4 GHz instantaneous bandwidth for short range radar (SRR) sensor test
