The Radio Crate is an elegant and portable solution for the demonstration and basic testing of PQ, MQB and MQB37W car radio platforms.
The Radio Crate is a specialised suitcase-shaped stand equipped with all the supporting electronics needed for the operation of car radios and the simulation of the car environment. Loudspeakers and resistive loads intended for audio output are integrated in the case together with its own control computer.
Part of the presentation stand is a tablet with the Android operating system. The tablet is connected to the stand via Wi-Fi and is used to control the built-in computer equipped with simulations of the car environment. At the same time, it is used to control the switching of artificial loads intended for speaker outputs or to bridge an audio signal output to external terminals.
Thanks to its two gateways, the PQ / MQB car radios can be operated in either online or offline modes. The MQB37W car radios only operate in online mode.
The Radio Crate is fitted into a durable case with strong latches. The bottom of the case includes an aluminium panel with speakers and connectors. The Radio Crate is available in two versions, portable and desktop.

Connection of External Units
The Radio Crate allows the connection of physical units (e.g. IC, AC, and PDC) and tests their interactions with the car radio. For the power supply of additional units, there are sockets on the side of the case (in case an internal power supply is used). There is also a connector with a private CAN for connecting the Quatrologic to control the car radios used in Audi cars.
An integral part of the test suitcase is the tablet with an Android OS along with a control application which is connected via Wi-Fi to the built-in PC. This application allows the user to set all the necessary settings for a proper demonstration and basic radio testing. The tablet is placed in a holder on the top part of the suitcase.
