Introduction The 2020 edition of IEC 61000-4-3 contains several significant technical changes. According to the forward of the standard, the specific changes are: testing using multiple test signals has b... Read More...
Are you considering the purchase of an EMC chamber for in-house testing? If so, what factors should you consider for determining if the investment is a wise choice or if the continued utilization of a third-party test facility is the better option?
Don’t overlook the fact that EMI filters can be used to prevent unwanted RF noise (such as electrical fast transient burst, conducted RF, and some surges) from entering susceptible devices.
Spectrum analyzers are expensive pieces of equipment that should be handled with care, especially when it involves applying signals to the RF input. Some new users may not know what “care” means and how to go about ensuring the spectrum analyzer they’re using is protected from overloading and damage.
This article briefly describes why it's important to consider what RF suppression/filtering techniques will be applied to your product as early in the design process as possible.
This article briefly describes the most important pre-layout elements to look for when selecting a SI/PI software simulation package.
A basic knowledge of the probe types and their performance capabilities is important because their operation can affect the whole system under test and measurement results obtained.
Sometimes we can get stuck in our careers, doing the same things over and over again, day in and day out. One way we can break free from this situation and improve our cognitive abilities is to continue to study and learn new things – even subjects outside of what might be considered our chosen specialty.
It’s imperative for successful completion of a testing project that as a compliance engineer or technician leading a product certification effort, you trust but verify the work of testing facilities.
Antennas used for EMC testing possess several characteristics which make them ideal for use in a fast-paced, production-like EMC test environment. This article will briefly describe what these characteristics are, starting with the most important parameter – antenna factor.
