Many individual components in electrical and electronic systems and devices are integrated into systems that are required to function as a whole. Examples of such systems include large electric vehicles, fixed industrial installations, novel scientific products such as quantum computers, and more. There are two EMC-related aspects to consider: intra-system EMC and inter-system EMC. This article focuses on the intra-system EMC aspect while also considering the inter-system aspect.
Whether your organization is seeking ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation for the first time or renewing your current accreditation, there are a few frequently overlooked or misunderstood sections of the ISO/IEC 17025 standard to pay close attention to.
This two-part article provides an overview of current automotive EMC standards and the intricacies of chamber testing automotive systems and components. In Part 2 of this article, we’ll address antennas used for automotive EMC testing.
Radio signal frequencies are rising to the millimeter-wave (mmWave) range as applications such as 5G networks and automotive radar systems seek more bandwidth at higher frequencies. Testing is an important part of producing new products at mmWave frequencies and coaxial cable assemblies are vital parts in getting signals from a signal generator to a device under test (DUT) and then to an analyzer.
This is the first of the three articles devoted to the Smith Chart and the calculations of the input impedance to a lossless transmission line.
It is a common misconception that designing an IC for system-level ESD requirements simply requires an increase in the capability of the ESD cells, which are already present for safe handling ESD requirements, like Human Body Model (HBM).
This column covers specifics on symbol use – one of the fundamental elements of your labels – and options for handling complexities you may be facing.
This experiment investigates the susceptibility of an ECG machine to emissions from unintentional emitters such as Gameboy™, iPod Nano™, and more.
Introduction IEC 61000-4-6 is titled “Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) - Part 4-6: Testing and measurement techniques - Immunity to conducted disturbances induced by radio-frequency fields.” This “conducted... Read More...
