Information and registration for Automotive Ethernet Basics 4th of September

You're invited to our Automotive Ethernet Basics Seminar in Gothenburg!

This is the second seminar event in the series that was founded by Spirent, Technica Engineering and Time Critical Networks.

Join us for a comprehensive training program led by specialists from Spirent, Rohde & Schwarz and Time Critical Networks on basics of the Ethernet and IP protocols, efficient testing of Ethernet devices (ECUs) in the car, as well as best practises going from concept to virtual design to physical realization.

The seminar focuses on the full OSI model, with extra depth on layers 1-3, and on devices used in an Ethernet network, with special attention to Open Alliance TC8 test specifications and ways of simplifying the testing.

What's new for this second event is that we're joined by experts from Rohde & Schwarz that will give a lot more insight to Layer 1 testing than we had previous event.

Topics covered

  • Ethernet allt the way from Layer 1 and up
    • Automotive Ethernet Protocols
    • Conformance testing
  • Ethernet Networking
    • Bridging/Switching
    • Performance testing
  • OPEN Alliance TC8 Test Specifications
  • Testing Methodologies
    • Testing of Layer 1, PHY
    • Test Scope Layer 2 of Automotive Ethernet
    • Test Scope TCP/IP Protocol Family
    • Test Scope Automotive Protocols
