Anritsu Company has announced that its LTE V2X PC5 Communications Software MX725000A now supports the Cohda Wireless Communications Module MK6C Evaluation Kit (EVK). The solution provides automobile OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers with an efficient tool to conduct required functional and regressions tests to evaluate C-V2X PC5 communications functions in devices and systems used in connected autonomous vehicles (CAVs).

Anritsu added support for the widely-used Cohda Wireless MK6C EVK to the MX725000A as a reference module. With the solution, which runs on a Windows-based laptop, the cost-of-test for verification of V2V and V2I communications are reduced.

Engineers use the LTE V2X PC5 Communications Software MX725000A to evaluate PC5 communications functions, a key technology to implement CAVs. The software-based solution supports typical use cases defined by national ITS standards such as Forward Collision Warning, Intersection Collision Warning, Emergency Brake Warning, etc. It operates interactively with C-V2X communications reference modules, GNSS simulators, and V2X emulator software.

Using commercially available C-V2X communications reference modules, the MX725000A creates time and cost efficiencies. It eliminates the need for expensive hardware emulators, helping configure a cost-effective test environment that eliminates the time-consuming task of creating complex scenarios using a programming language. With the MX725000A, the interactive GUI for selecting evaluation scenarios and checking the emulated vehicle on the map supports intuitive and easy-to-understand functional evaluation to improve product quality and shorten the development period.

The Cohda Wireless MK6C EVK is a C-V2X evaluation kit using the MDM9150 chipset, supporting the cost-effective development of C-V2X applications and use cases.
