LitePoint Joins Car Connectivity Consortium to Support Standardization and Interoperability of Vehicle-to-Smartphone Connectivity

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LitePoint, a leading provider of wireless test solutions, is pleased to announce its membership in the Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC) with the goal of ensuring a seamless end-user experience for keyless entry in 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 leader 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.”
