TOYO Introduces Emissions Measurement and Analysis Software “EPX/VE” for Automobile and On-vehicle Equipment

TOYO Introduces Emissions Measurement and Analysis Software “EPX/VE” for Automobile and On-vehicle Equipment

New Software Enables Anyone to Conduct Measurements and Perform Analysis Like an Experienced Engineer

Tokyo, Jan 8, 2019 – TOYO Corporation (HQ: Chuo-ku, Tokyo Japan, President and CEO: Masaru Gomi) announces the launch of new internally developed EMI(*1) measurement and analysis software for automobile and on-vehicle equipment. Called Vehicles and Components Emissions Measurement and Analysis Software, the application is used for measuring electromagnetic interference emissions from automobile and on-vehicle equipment and analyzing them to verify conformance to various standards including international and auto makers’ own standards.

The “EPX/VE” is a software product that measures and analyzes the electromagnetic noise emitted from automobile and on-vehicle equipment. Combined with Keysight’s EMI receiver(*2), “N9048B PXE,” this software helps prevent you from missing any noise and identify the part that emits noise along with the location of the noise source. By making it easier to pinpoint the noise source, development engineers are now able to take countermeasures against such noise at each step of the development cycle more efficiently, which leads to the reduction in overall development time.

The “EPX/VE” supports the conformance test and ease of evaluation against EMI standards for automobile and on-vehicle equipment in various countries and regions.

 

Background / Feature
The “EPX/VE” is TOYO’s original software and was developed by One Technologies Company, an in-house TOYO company engaged in product development. An operator can measure and record the electromagnetic noise emitted by automobile and on-vehicle equipment using an EMI receiver and analyze the measured data on the “EPX/VE” to check whether the product complies with various standards.

There have been some challenges with the above-mentioned analysis – for example, it was difficult for non-experienced engineers to find the noise source by looking at the measured data. The noise source often can be identified only by an experienced engineer’s intuition. However, by visualizing all signal waveforms including noise in chronological order, the “EPX/VE” can provide you with the timing and frequency component of the noise. You can easily isolate the part emitting noise by finding the one that has the operating cycle that matches the target signal waveform. This enables anyone to conduct the EMI measurement and analysis like an expert engineer and will help shorten the overall product development cycle.

Furthermore, the “EPX/VE” also supports the conformance test for various international, regional or auto manufacturers’ own standards and by using this software, you can easily find out if your product conforms to the relevant EMI standard.

 

Combined solution with Keysight “N9048B PXE” EMI receiver
With the world’s first feature called “Accelerated Time Domain Scan (A-TDS)”*3, Keysight Technologies’ new EMI receiver, “N9048B PXE” offers gapless measurement, which enables you to “constantly” monitor the spectrum in the measurement frequency range so that noise is no longer missed. When noise that exceeds the maximum allowable level defined by the standard is missed in EMI measurement conducted at each development phase and is found at the final stage of development, this will substantially increase the development time as engineers need to go back to an earlier stage and fix the problem. Due to this, development engineers have no choice but to take great pains in taking countermeasures against noise and spend much time on it. A combined solution consisting of the “EPX/VE” and EMI receiver “N9048B PXE” prevents you from missing noise when you conduct EMI measurement for automobile and on-vehicle equipment and helps anyone identify the noise source easily and quickly to save time.

*1 Electromagnetic Interference. The phenomenon in which electromagnetic waves emitted from electronics adversely affect other electronics. The EMI measurement makes sure that the emission from a product is lower than the level that affects the normal operation of other electronics. The EMI conformance test is to test a product against an EMI standard and verify the conformance (different standards are defined for each country, region or product category).

*2 Equipment for EMI measurement that records the electromagnetic wave emitted from DUT

*3 A-TDS is an optional feature.

Fermilab Selected TOYO Corporation’s High-Speed Network Capture Appliance

SYNESIS to Help Fermilab to Monitor and Control High-Bandwidth Data Flows

Tokyo, Jan 8, 2019 /BusinessWire/ – TOYO Corporation, the leading test and measurement company, today announced that Fermilab, a United States Department of Energy national laboratory, has selected 100G SYNESIS to be part of their set of network visibility and security tools.

With the ever-increasing speeds of today’s network infrastructures, the performance of the typical 100G network capture appliance is not adequate for Fermilab’s needs of troubleshooting, security and maintenance. Fermilab plans to use the SYNESIS 100G capture appliance to develop algorithms to monitor and secure deployments over high-bandwidth connections. In addition to packet capture without loss, SYNESIS provides the added feature to replay recorded network traffic up to 100G. This makes it possible to pre-test any planned high-speed network infrastructure designs with real-world data.

Having a product that can capture all network traffic up to 100G without any packet loss is critical. Security threats have become increasingly complex and can remain undetected by traditional security appliances, which can be oversubscribed, until damage is evident. To gain the ability to observe the entire network, every data frame must be captured and recorded at any traffic speed.    With complete historical packet data, it becomes possible to investigate those previously undetected malicious data that traversed the network, and to fix the issue to solve the security threats. Therefore, it is important to capture 100% of all packets when it comes to security and to have a reliable tool to be the foundation for these security tests.

TOYO Corporation’s SYNESIS is able to capture 100G without any packet loss and is able to replay captured data back at a 100G wire rate speed, providing a possible solution to the difficult problem of securing high-bandwidth data transfers.

“TOYO’s SYNESIS network capture appliances are the choices for many different types of organizations around the world because of their powerful feature set and their ability to record every single packet without any single packet loss,” said Masaru Gomi, CEO and President at TOYO Corporation. “TOYO values the partnership with Fermilab. The customer also is aware that we recently added 200G support to SYNESIS allowing them and other customers to future-proof their investment as networks transition to that higher speed.”

The use of 100Gbps packet analyzer tools is not just for the Telecom world anymore, as these high-speed analyzers are also increasingly being used for security purposes.

TOYO has four years of experience engineering 100G packet capture appliances and over 30 years of experience in supplying high-speed capture and network management solutions. With many years of experience exceeding customer requirements in the Telecom, Financial, and Government industries throughout Asia, TOYO continues to expand further by supplying 100G capture appliances for use in security and to increase adoption in North America and European markets.
