Integrated circuits intended for automotive applications have higher electrostatic discharge (ESD) qualification requirements than those intended for commercial and consumer electronics.
This article addresses two very common questions involving two interrelated and specialized sub-fields within the realm of compliance engineering.
In this short video, our expert application engineer explains the basics of leakage current testing.
Cell-level analysis and testing for batteries used in electric mobility applications can help mitigate risks to application performance and long-term reliability.
EMC and Antenna Measurement Testing can be done in the same chamber, but it largely depends on the expectations one has. Here you will find some factors to consider when trying to decide between combined or sep... Read More...
This application note presents a highly functional, automated approach to automotive cable/harness testing. This combined approach results in an integrated solution that simplifies the testing process and enables unlimited data storage for analyses and backup.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is ramping up its efforts to expand the use of its voluntary Accreditation Scheme for Conformity Assessment (ASCA) Pilot, a program intended to more effectively lever... Read More...
Hipot (“high potential”) electrical safety testers produce high voltage to perform dielectric withstand and insulation resistance tests. This article discusses the safety considerations and capabilities of modern hipot testers that utilize electronic source technology to assess compliance with IEC-61010.
The history and insight into how the EMC specifications and procedures evolved at one automotive original equipment manufacturer (OEM). Other present-day OEM specifications are more similar than different mostly due to the extensive reference to international standards which these OEMs have taken part in developing (e.g., EMC committees). Knowing this history should help today’s EMC practitioners, especially those new to the discipline, gain some insight into the implementation and limitations of test procedures and when to be flexible in analyzing test results.
RF field probes are specialized measuring instruments with unique specifications and performance characteristics. This article details the main factors to consider in selecting a probe appropriate to your testing needs.
