Telematics test platform addresses in-vehicle testing

June 10, 2013 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
With cars increasingly incorporating telematics functions and features, testing of telematics devices becomes an issue for OEMs and tier ones. RF testing expert company IZT GmbH has developed IZT RecPlay, a platform for RF receiver design validation of analog and digital radio, video and global navigation satellite systems.

The platform features a portable monitoring RF recorder for mobile and telematics applications for accurate phase-synchronous recording of diversity signals from multiple antennas. Customers benefit from the lightweight recorder with a 30-cm high-resolution touch screen as a turnkey solution for in-vehicle testing. The integrated GPS receiver serves as a highly robust time and location reference. RecPlay's signal generator IZT S1000 combines 31 virtual signal generators in a single platform for testing radio receiver and for creating complex mixed signal RF scenarios.

The system receives, records, and replays up to 20 MHz bandwidth in a frequency range from 9 kHz to 3000 MHz. It supports practically all radio broadcast standards such as FM-RDS, DVB-T, DAB, DAB+, DMB-Audio, Sirius and XM, including DRM/DRM+ and HD radio receivers.
