If you think you’re ever going to need to use flexible RF absorber sheets to help your product pass emissions, even at some later date, it might be a good idea to have already identified and obtained the material and have characterized its insertion-loss performance.
The calculation of creepage and clearance distances (spacings) is one of the most important activities a product safety/compliance engineer or technician performs throughout the product development process.
This article briefly describes the concept of the synergy of filtering and shielding and why knowing it is important.
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.
