One of the world’s most prolific developers of innovative technology products for consumers and businesses appears to be expanding its innovation efforts into the EMC testing space.
According to a recent article posted to the website “Patently Apple,” a patent application, titled “Electromagnetic Shielding Testing Chamber with Ventilation,” was published earlier this month by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. The patent application details a testing apparatus for electromagnetically sensitive equipment that includes housing designed to block the transmission of external electromagnetic waves while also reducing the reflection of electromagnetic waves within the testing chamber.
The testing apparatus design also includes tubing to provide airflow between the interior of the testing chamber and the external environment that is configured to block external electromagnetic waves from entering the chamber.
In addition to the EMC testing chamber application, Apple has also reportedly filed several additional patents related to various aspects of the graphics processors used in its devices.
