Overview

PARTS is a high-resolution test solution developed by Controlar for testing automotive radars in the production line (EoL). It ensures automated pass/fail automotive radar validation for quality control and safety compliance.

PARTS is suitable for multimode radars (Longe-range, Medium-range and Short-range Radars) covering multiple frequency bands (24; 76-77; 77-81 GHz) and includes a 3D pan-tilt system for radar antenna’s radiation diagram and EIRP (Effective Isotropic Radiated Power) measurement.

Based on a semi-automatic process and high-quality fixturing for quick change over, it allows easy operation and product maneuvering by the user. This high-quality test solution can be integrated into automated factory production lines.

Product Configuration

PARTS is an all-in-one solution composed of various blocks:

  • Radar Target Generator*
  • Semi-automatic load/unload of radar Unit Under Test (UUT)
  • Anechoic and shielded chamber for testing and validation of radar
  • UUTs Baseline machine – main computer, HMI, PLCs for automation and motors control, electrical board, etc.

(*) Powered by R&S® AREG100A automotive radar echo generator

Main Applications

PARTS is specifically suited for the Automotive industry for the functional testing of radar components.
