Demand for more electronic devices in cars, such as anti-collision sensors, media players, and navigation systems has led to the deployment of Plastic Optical Fiber (POF) in automotive networks. Essential functions depend on the flawless, high-speed, low-latency exchange and processing of large volumes of data in near real time via in-vehicle Ethernet (10BASE-T1S/100BASE-T1/ 1000BASE-RH/Multi-Gigabit Ethernet). Additionally, wireless charging, state-of-the-art dashboards, and infotainment utilizing technologies like USB, MIPI, HDMI® and Qi are becoming must-have features.

GRL’s Test Services and Solutions effectively address design, validation and testing requirements for Infotainment, Automotive Networking, Charging and Power Management. In partnership with KDPOF and Rohde & Schwarz, GRL will demonstrate 10BASE-T1S, Multi-Gigabit Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet over Plastic Optical Fiber (GEPOF) test set-ups. GRL will also showcase their user-friendly Qi wireless charging compliance test solution, GRL-C3.

Stop by the exhibition floor (look for the GRL logo) to discuss GRL’s comprehensive automotive solutions and learn how compliance testing with good reproducibility improves device evaluation efficiency to help get the most out of your automotive technology investments.
