Understanding Component EMC Testing for ICs

If you're producing integrated circuit (IC) products for electromagnetic environments, you must test and pass all the regulatory electromagnetic interference (EMI) and safety requirements. Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing is performed to ensure these components can be used in the intended environment without failing, degrading, or causing other equipment to fail.

Why Connections Can Ruin Testing & How To Create A Valid Test Environment

Connectors will influence RF test results in various and sometimes unpredictable ways. Test equipment can compensate for some of these influences but often with detrimental effects. This article discusses how connections will affect test results and why it is important to create a valid test environment.

Using Connectors With Integrated EEPROMS

Connector systems with integrated microchips such as EEPROMs (electrically erasable programmable read-only memory) offer an easy pairing of devices and connectors, real-time connection status, mating cycle count, and electronic device identification. 

Head-To-Head Coaxial Interconnect Vs. OTA Testing For 5G

Over-the-air (OTA) testing, something not historically possible with past generations of wireless devices, has the potential to revolutionize wireless device testing while enabling innovative testing of both advanced antenna systems (AAS) and antenna array technology.
