Automotive Ethernet testing – Automation leaves no room for errors
Autonomous systems require automated processes, thus Spirent has developed an AUTOSAR ARXML file parser for the Spirent TestCenter software suite. This enables engineers to concentrate on testing the network instead of typing in a 12-character MAC address 100 times.

Being able to automatically generate hundreds of devices and streams by just importing an AUTOSAR ARXML file ensures continuous improvements around Ethernet testing and development. Spirent can also provide the source code for this parser to enable customers to update and modify the automation to add OEM specific VLAN security features and functions for increased flexibility and ease of use.

The AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture) partnership is an alliance in which Global OEMs, suppliers, tool providers and semiconductor companies work together to develop and establish an open de facto standard for automotive electric/electronic (E/E) architectures. Managing the growing E/E component complexity is another important aspect of their work. The goal of AUTOSAR is to fulfill future vehicle requirements, such as availability, safety, software upgrades/updates and maintainability, as well as increased scalability.

The core partners include 9 key players:
