With the Automotive Ethernet Tester (AET), we provide a highly automated test solution for OPEN ALLIANCE TC8 switching and component-level TSN/AVB testing. The test system is fully controlled via a PC Control Application. Test suites are available for the respective test scopes and contain individual test cases. These are script-based and parameterized before a test run via a single configuration file that contains all relevant DUT properties. The recorded data is automatically stored in a predefined folder structure. In addition, the system includes an infrastructure to fully record sent and received data. An additional AET Analyzer tool is available to analyze the recorded data. It accesses the file structure and generates a result protocol from the recorded data.
The test system consists of a 19” test rack with control and analysis software. Depending on the implementation, the test system can contain up to 15 Ethernet ports (100BASE-T1, 1000BASE-T1), each of which can simulate and evaluate specific test scenarios.
