Tester / Programmer for Voice Control Modules

Portable equipment in a briefcase type housing for testing voice control modules. Designed specifically for field failure analysis & restoration of voice control modules at the customer site. Can read the module flash memory contents & display in various formats for analysis. Fast programming equipment can restore all or part of the flash. Extensive test & com mu nication capabilities include: Bluetooth, fibre optic and Kbus. The equipment incorporates an internal variable frequency sine wave generator & signal measurement facilities for audio testing.


Modules Tested

  • SWIM - all versions

The SWIM module (Super Wireless Interface Module) is fitted to some luxury vehicles to give the driver hands free, voice activated communication with the car & mobile phone. It provides voice control of various vehicle and phone functions.  SWIM MOST has similar capabilities, but has MOST communications in addition.  MOST (Media Oriented Systems Transport) is a fibre optic communications system providing an optical multimedia network with in the vehicle.
