Why VCO1S A²B Analyzer?
The VCO1S A²B Analyzer system is designed specifically for development teams servicing automotive OEMs, automotive suppliers and audio connectivity equipment suppliers. The deterministic nature of the A²B technology makes it particularly well-suited for automotive audio devices (active speakers, microphones), in-car communication and infotainment.
The A²B Analyzer system consists of a compact hardware device, an accompanying C library software development kit, and network configuration and simulation tools. The hardware device includes a USB 2.0 interface for PC connectivity for audio data and command/control functions. The small form factor device also features a variety of popular audio and connectivity peripherals.
Faster time to market
The Siemens VCO1S A²B Analyzer is an off-the-shelf, plug-and-play solution, enabling engineers to quickly set up test systems and thoroughly verify audio components and networks in automotive environments.
The included A²B network configuration and node simulation tools support a wide range of functions, such as network discovery, diagnostics, GPIO/I2C simulation and dynamic routing of audio to/from the A²B bus. Combining the A²B Analyzer device and software tools helps accelerate the testing and development of A²B-based systems.
Easily integrate into A²B-based systems
The Siemens VCO1S A²B Analyzer is highly flexible. The accompanying software can be used to configure the hardware to simulate a wide range of complex A²B network communication scenarios.
Support for A²B stack integration is available, enabling seamless interoperability between the OS-based master device, such as an IVI head unit, with any A²B-based audio network.
Scalable across multiple use cases
Portable and customizable, the Siemens VCO1S A²B Analyzer can be used throughout the entire product development lifecycle. The A²B Analyzer can be used as an engineering bench tool for either rapid prototyping or system simulation.
Engineering teams can also use it for validation and end-of-line testing by performing signal generation, pass/fail analysis and automated functional tests. The Siemens VCO1S A²B Analyzer is also suitable for in-vehicle testing.
