Understanding Preselection in EMI Receivers

In this comprehensive application note, you'll learn more about mixers and how they benefit your testing needs. You'll also go in-depth around preselection: What is it? Why is it important? Most importantly, you'll discover how applying this new information can save you time and money during your EMI testing.

Functional Safety for IoT Products

Increased use of complex embedded electronics and software can create issues for designers, manufacturers, and integrators because of the potential for malfunctions. Systematic failures are caused by design, manufacturing, operational procedures, software bugs, or documentation errors. Methods to prevent such losses should include a Functional Safety evaluation, which helps detect malfunctions before they can lead to potentially catastrophic consequences.

Guide to Non-Contact Sensors and their Applications

Sensors, both contact and non-contact, are crucial devices that allow the monitoring, detection, and reaction to conditions in an environment or within a process or piece of equipment. While myriad types of sensors exist and are designed to monitor varying conditions, all of them can be characterized as being one of two types — contact sensors and non-contact sensors. This paper will explore what differentiates contact and non-contact sensors.

Understanding REACH on a Global Scale

Several countries have enacted REACH regulations, but one of the first to be implemented was European Union’s REACH (EC 1907/2006) in 2007. EU REACH is considered the standard for REACH compliance, sharing a similar purpose with REACH regulations in other countries. The primary difference between worldwide REACH regulations are the data collection and reporting requirements. This whitepaper will explore various REACH regulations around the globe and also provide general tips to simplify the REACH compliance process.

Antenna Beamwidth Coverage Calculations

Calculating and understanding antenna beamwidth is critical as it impacts many test results. Selecting the correct antenna and placement that corresponds to the beamwidth is critical.
