The popular National Instruments 77 GHz VRTS with the Konrad Technologies GUI offers verification of hardware and software for new radar sensors. Based on the National Instruments PXIe-5840 second-generation Vector Signal Transceiver (VST) and NI LabVIEW, an active radar-simulator, Konrad Technologies developed an editor, which allows the user to generate complex scenarios that can be automatically replayed. This editor gives testers the ability to simulate complex automotive scenarios without ever needing to go outside.
We develop high performance board test systems based on the PXI platform, which features fast computing power, fast bus systems and additional test capabilities for functional test, boundary scan test (JTAG), AOI test and RF test etc.
This RF-system is able to test products in an 868 MHz frequency range, for example radio systems, heat-cost distributors, water and heat meters. It is designed as a semi-automatic manual work station and allows parallel placement and automatic functional test of two-times two DUTs in a tandem arrangement. To guarantee a stable measuring result, the test system has two identical RF-chambers.
For a leading automotive supplier an RF test system for in-circuit test and subsequently functional test for a blind spot radar transmitting and receiving module has been built. This system operates in the 24 or 77 GHz range and therefore a special RF absorber chamber had to be built to determine the receiving characteristics as well as the directional receiving pattern of the antenna.
The KT-Mini-Sphere is a uniform light source based on the integrating sphere concept. Combined with precise current amps and photodiodes for internal adjustment it’s capable of accurate intensity and color correlated temperature (CCT) control. This enables testing of camera shading or finding of dirt particles (blur) or defective pixels (hot or cold)
A fully automated test system for remote keys was developed for a leading manufacturer of mechanical and electrical car locking systems. The manufacturer now has the possibility to execute durability tests for up to eight different DUTs simultaneously in a climate chamber and at different frequency ranges.
Camera resolution test in confined space with accessory lens
The Camera MTF Target is designed to the targeted test specifications of the camera under test. We use state-of-the-art optical design software to achieve a high quality of the test systems and answer to requirements of target dimensions and target cost at the same time.
