Measurement Uncertainties in Outdoor Far-Field Antenna Ranges

Consolidated methodologies have long been established to assess measurement uncertainties in both near-field and compact-range antenna measurements. However, there is currently no analogous methodology for outdoor far-field measurement facilities. This article presents a framework for assessing the measurement uncertainties on an outdoor far‑field elevated range.

ESD Designers’ Headache with Multiple Automotive Test Requirements, Part 2

The trend of progressively migrating both ESD and EMC immunity from the system/board to the component level is creating unprecedented challenges for the component ESD designer. Implications of EMC-ESD immunity co-design will be reviewed along with several case studies.

IT Server Hardware Compliance, Part 1

This two-part article provides a detailed overview of hardware compliance issues applicable to mainframe and server computers and their subcomponents.

Correlation Between Insertion Loss and Input Impedance of EMC Filters, Part 3: Cascaded LC and CL Filters

This is the third article of a three-article series devoted to the correlation between the insertion loss and input impedance of passive EMC filters.

Implementing Embedded ESD Detection, Part 2

This column focuses on the practical aspects of implementing embedded ESD detection. We’ll provide a step-by-step guide, discuss validation and testing methodologies, present case studies, and delve into future trends and innovations in the field.

Low-Frequency Magnetic Field Shielding

Occasionally, we are asked to help develop shielding effective for near-field low-frequency (LF) magnetic fields, perhaps in a situation where some regulatory agency has imposed limits on LF magnetic field emissions of our product, and we are forced to comply.

What Every Electronics Engineer Needs to Know About: Working with EMC Test Labs

Choosing an EMC test lab to work with is one of the most important decisions any electronics design engineer or product developer has to make.
