Agilent Technologies Introduces Automotive Test Solutions that Simplify Product Debugging, Validation
NUREMBERG, Germany, Embedded World, Booth 225, Hall 10, Feb. 13, 2007 -- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced multiple product options that help automotive engineers develop their electronic products faster and under budget, while meeting quality requirements. These automotive test products can easily be integrated in complex, automated functional test configurations, which can be leveraged from design validation into production. Agilent is demonstrating the following new products at Embedded World: The FlexRay option for the Agilent 6000 series mixed signal oscilloscopes, which offers a robust set of FlexRay frame, slot and error triggering, including the ability to trigger on specific FlexRay communications qualified on base-cycle and cycle-repetition. Designers can see a synchronous and time-correlated display of segment and slot-timing boundaries by importing a FIBEX file that defines the global FlexRay schedule directly into the 6000 Series mixed signal oscilloscope. More information is available at www.agilent.com/find/flexray_PR. The FlexRay extension to the Agilent 16800 and 16900 Series logic analyzer, which provides FlexRay packet decoding capabilities and is essential when debugging and validating activity between multiple buses in an automotive system. Analysis includes timing between signals, inverse assembly and packet display for key buses, as well as time-correlation of protocol packets to CPU and memory bus activity.
