Milpitas, California - November 1, 2022
- CETECOM, Inc., a global company providing automotive test and certification services,
announces the first-of-its-kind
Automotive Experience Lab (AEL). This innovative testing center, which opens
on November 1, 2022 in Silicon Valley, is designed as a proof-of-concept lab for
automotive application testing in a simulated environment.
CETECOM, with more than 25 years experience in testing and certifying RF devices,
leads the project, which will enable automotive engineers to validate component-level
hardware designs during the HIL phase. With early access to cutting-edge test equipment,
automotive application teams can significantly reduce design time, saving development
costs and getting their product to market more quickly.
CETECOM Managing Director, Praveena Anand-Kumar says, "Our established presence
in Silicon Valley enables us to keep our finger on the pulse of the connected automotive
industry. CETECOM's AEL will be providing an innovative environment for engineers
to design and develop automotive components alongside our experts and testing partners,
to get their products to market faster."
Supporting CETECOM in the Automotive Experience Lab are two well-known names
in the connectivity industry: Anritsu, leaders in advanced wireless test and measure
equipment and dSPACE, a sought-after partner in the development of innovative vehicle
Adnan Khan, Director of Technology and Market Development at Anritsu adds, "We
are witnessing a revolution in the connected automotive space. Through proper testing
in the AEL, the entire ecosystem can gain confidence in their products even before
specifications are standardized."
AEL Provides Testing Solutions for Emerging Technologies
CETECOM's wireless specialists will be on-site, guiding customers on how to use
the test equipment and providing consulting services. Currently, the AEL will house
advanced 5G test equipment along with dSPACE's software simulation for telematics
control unit (TCU) testing. These sophisticated tools will enable engineers to conduct
a variety of validation tests, saving time and money.
Peter Waeltermann, the President of dSPACE, explains that "Combining dSPACE's
sensor simulation environment,
AURELION, with Anritsu's Radio Communication Test Station enables CETECOM to
provide back-to-back testing capabilities for dynamic test scenarios in closed loop.
Customers benefit from higher levels of integration and coverage during 5G and EMC
CETECOM plans to introduce a wide range of wireless automotive tests to help
customers move quickly through the development phase and smooth out the certification
process further down the road.
The Automotive Experience Lab is unique within the ecosystem of partners who
develop technology for the automotive industry. Typically, due to the expense of
wireless testing equipment, engineers are often years into component development
before they can get design validation at the "HIL" phase. The AEL is designed to
meet that critical need.
Free Trial Session
To introduce the Automotive Experience Lab, CETECOM is offering one (1) free
four-hour session in the lab, which includes a consultation with CETECOM experts
and training on Anritsu's testing equipment. This is a limited time offer, which
runs from November 1, 2022 - January 31, 2023. Interested customers involved with
automotive application design can sign
