Delivering real business benefits across key segments

Today’s automobiles are furnished with more sophisticated electronic components and systems than ever

New developments such as autonomous driving technologies are using more and more sensors and electronic devices to enable connectivity and safe communication. Thus, automotive electronics testing is essential for ensuring the electronic components are safe and do not interfere with the vehicle’s safe operation. Automotive electronics testing ensures that all the vehicle’s electronic components hold up against rigorous testing and comply with relevant regulations and EMC test standards.

There are several key benefits and reasons for testing electronic components in vehicles, including:

  • Ensuring safety of automotive electronics by demonstrating compliance to applicable regulations
  • Simplifying global market access of electrical/electronic components by meeting relevant country regulations (e.g. EU Low Voltage and Machinery Directives and EMC Directives)
  • Saving time and money by avoiding costly delays and recalls
  • Meeting consumer quality expectations for vehicle electronics
