Car radio tests

Ensure the quality and functionality of car radios around the globe

It is extremely important that developers include all broadcast and interference signals for a comprehensive measurement scenario. With its portfolio of signal generators, Rohde& Black meet the requirements for generating scenarios that simulate complex interference between broadcast and mobile radio standards, indoor interference sources, and diversity reception of audio/video signals according to the latest broadcast standards.

The solutions from Rohde& Black ensure complex simulations of all “on-air” signals. This provides the developer not only with the signals from the local public networks, but also with those from other countries, which are needed for a worldwide scenario.

Ensure conformity

The EN 303 345 standard describes a series of mandatory test cases for radio receivers to ensure the highest quality and harmonization of car radio products sold in Europe. Typical EN 303 345 scenarios include adjacent channel selectivity and blocking tests with AM, FM, DAB/DAB+ (Digital Audio Broadcasting/DAB+) and DRM (Digital Radio Mondiale) signals.

With our measurement solutions, radio tuner chipset manufacturers, car radio manufacturers and OEMs can ensure full compliance with EN 303 345.
