03.16.23 -- Problems In EMC Test Set-Ups ... And How To Fix Them

Spotlight On Test & Measurement Solutions
How To Achieve Ultrafast Power Supply Transient Response

This white paper presents practical methods for achieving an ultrafast power supply transient response in wireless and, especially, RF applications.

Reverberation Chamber Tuner/Stirrer Considerations In EMC Testing

Tuners support both stirred and stepped operation. They can be sized to match any chamber dimensions and crafted from any of several RF energy-reflective materials.

RF Test Setup For Measuring Power & Harmonics

Power measurement is accomplished by using a high-power calibrated coupler or attenuator, which gets attached to the amplifier RF output connector. Harmonics are recorded similarly by increasing the input drive from the signal source. 

AC-DC Converter Testing Fundamentals

AC-DC conversion stage in front of any electronic equipment is needed. For this purpose, different solutions exist to convert the higher AC voltage to a lower and safe DC voltage.

EMI Troubleshooting With The Latest-Generation Oscilloscopes

EMI/EMC regulations help to ensure reliable operation and safety for users of electrical and electronic equipment. Regulations limit the allowable radiated emissions, and to keep their products within these limits, designers invest significant time and effort. This application note describes techniques that may be used to determine the source of unwanted emissions, especially after an out-of-limits condition has been identified through formal testing or pre-compliance testing.

Supercharging A VNA With An RF Matrix Switch (VNAPort Extension)

Extending a VNA with a matrix switch can be one of the most cost-effective, modular, fastest, and least resource-intensive methods of reaching a desired port count.

EMC Test Chambers Case Study

Using proprietary modeling tools (numerical simulations to predict RF performance) along with building information modeling (BIM) during the design phase, ETS-Lindgren optimized Alter Technology's chamber configuration not only to fit perfectly into the limited space but also to maximize the chamber performance beyond the specified requirements.
