Automotive Radar Testsystem

Systematic and efficient test and measurement solutions for automotive radar

Konrad Technologies developed a system specifically to address the challenges of testing automotive radar systems. The KT-319000 automotive radar test system combines In-circuit and functional Test techniques to optimize the test procedures for performance and throughput. The Radar Test System is optimized for the manufacturing environment and can be integrated in-line in a high volume manufacturing facility or configured for manual handling.

Highlights

  • Automotive radar signals, analysis of continuous wave radar signals, and radar target generator test
  • RF testing of your Radar Devices with the throughput required to meet the high volumes demanded by the automotive industry.
  • RF testing is performed at up to 24 GHz #3
  • ICT: R, L, C, Z, cont., short
  • FCT: RF test up to 24GHz
  • Addresses needs of high-volume manufacturers
  • Combines in-circuit and functional test facilities
  • Includes RF chamber for shielded measurements on radar devices
  • Chamber can be rotated to simulate real-world operating conditions
  • Uses Agilent RF signal generators, power meters and power supplies
  • Achieves comprehensive RF testing with high throughput

Features

  • Measurement of current consumption
  • RF relevant functional test of the antenna
  • On-the-fly antenna switching
  • Short cycle time
  • Good part marking
  • Traceability
  • In In-circuit mode, the internal nodes of the Device-Under-Test (DUT) can be probed to measure parameters including R, L, C, Z, continuity and short-circuit.
  • In Functional Test mode, the connection to the DUT is via the edge connector and test points. During functional test the DUT is mounted in a purpose-designed RF chamber with the measurement instruments located directly beneath in a separate test rack offering up to 66U of space.
  • Coaxial conductors or waveguides route the RF signals from the instrumentation to the DUT. The chamber includes a drum that can rotate the DUT through 180°. This allows it to be characterized under the real-world conditions that would be encountered when installed in a vehicle.
  • RF testing is performed at up to 24 GHz. The test system uses Agilent Technologies’ RF signal generators, power meters and power supplies, which are fully integrated with the RF chamber, the DUT interfaces and Konrad’s proprietary software
  • The Radar Test System is optimized for the manufacturing environment and can be integrated in-line in a high volume manufacturing facility or configured for manual handling.
  • With Konrad’s KT-319000 Automotive Radar Test System you can achieve comprehensive RF testing of your Radar Devices with the throughput required to meet the high volumes demanded by the automotive industry.
