Often underestimated, RF field probes are critical to the implementation of a proper radiated immunity test system. All too often, system specifiers gloss over this essential element after having spent a considerable amount of time and energy selecting components required to "generate" the required RF field. In an effort to simplify the process of probe selection, this article will focus on the salient specifications of RF field probes.
