DG Technologies has teamed with C&S Group, known worldwide as #1 in validation and conformance testing to provide critical vehicle network services for vehicle network devices, components, and implementation scenarios.
Standardization bodies and consortia including ISO, IEEE, SAE, LIN, FlexRay AUTOSAR, Ethernet and MOST, prepare conformance test specifications, containing test cases and test suite definitions for the operational requirements of the protocols. Conformance tests are based on these specifications. Through this partnership, DG participates in the standardization process to enhance these specifications by their real-world test experiences.
Vehicle Network Conformance Test Architecture
Conformance testing is the only method to ensure correct functional behavior of complex vehicle communication networks. According to ISO 9646, each layer of a communication protocol must be tested against its specification. The test suite is a standardized environment for the execution of the individual tests. Each component of the test suite must be calibrated to ensure comparable and reproducible results. Technical and organizational requirements of conformance testing are implemented at C&S and accreditation according to ISO 17025 is in progress.
