Requirements of Antennas for EMC Testing

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.

Dipole-Type Antennas in EMC Testing

This two-article series is devoted to a dipole family of antennas used in EMC testing: half-wave dipole, quarter-wave monopole, log-periodic, and biconical antenna. Part I presents the antenna models and the construction details.

Let’s Talk About… Baluns

What is an antenna Balun? The term balun is a portmanteau (a blending of two words) of balanced/unbalanced – BAL-UN.
