LitePoint, a provider of wireless test solutions, announced that it has joined the Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC) as a member with the goal of ensuring a seamless end-user experience for keyless entry in automotive vehicles such as cars and trucks.
In the effort to allow consumers to use their mobile devices for secure keyless entry and access to their vehicle, the CCC launched the Digital Key Release 3, a standardized technology that uses Ultra-wideband (UWB) in combination with Bluetooth Low Energy to allow contactless, location aware and secure communication between smartphones and vehicles.
LitePoint, as a specialist in the design verification and production testing of wireless products, brings a complete set of turnkey automated test solutions for the Ultra-wideband and Bluetooth Low Energy technologies.
Convenience, security, and privacy protection will be prime factors in the successful adoption of UWB. As a leader in wireless testing, LitePoint understands how device calibration and validation are of utmost importance from the lab to product production, to ensure device interoperability and to deliver optimum user experience. “LitePoint is committed to enabling the UWB ecosystem and with our tight partnership with leading RF chipsets, module makers, and device manufacturers we’re excited to help build the UWB ecosystem,” said Adam Smith, Director of Product Marketing at LitePoint. “We are excited to help propel this technology in the automotive industry.”
Key UWB Solutions Offered by LitePoint
LitePoint’s IQgig-UWB test platform is the first fully integrated test solution to calibrate and validate devices with UWB technology.
