Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)/ Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) testing is a major component in the design and manufacturing process of RF and electronic devices. All electronic devices have the potential to emit or be susceptible to electromagnetic fields and it is crucial that they are tested for uninterrupted performance. EMC testing can be classified into two sections: I) Immunity tests (susceptibility), and II) Emissions tests. Immunity tests check the ability of devices to function as intended when subjected to external EM fields while Emissions testing measures the magnitude of EM field emitted by the devices.
Various regulatory bodies such as FDA, FCC, and ISO have designed specified limits on RF emissions. These EMC regulations provide reliability and safety for anyone using electronic equipment as they assure that the device will not interfere with the operation of the surrounding devices/equipments or fail to operate as intended due to electromagnetic interference.
In this article, everything RF has compiled a list of trending EMC Testing products to showcase the increasing capabilities of these solutions.
