Intricacies when selecting an EMC Amplifier

Download this white paper now | PDF Download

Broadband amplifiers are used to generate the high field strengths required by EMC radiated immunity testing standards. Although output power and frequency range are the two most important specifications used in selecting an EMC amplifier, the overall performance of an amplifier is often strongly affected by additional internal and external factors.

New EMI Test Capabilities to Characterize Failing Emissions

Download this white paper now | PDF Download

The failure rate for EMI compliance continuously increases, and developers are often left with little insight into identifying the source of failing EMI emissions. This white paper focuses on revolutionary EMI diagnostic capabilities, the need to troubleshoot, more insight than pass/fail results, and iteratively test within a short period of time.

Throughout product development, radiated emissions are repeatedly measured to ensure compliance to EMI standards. The use of Time Domain Scan greatly reduces measurement time without compromising accuracy, and thus can significantly save development costs. The Comparison of Time Domain Scans and Stepped Frequency Scans in EMI Test Receivers white paper from Rohde & Schwarz takes a critical look at the technology and advantages of making compliant measurements using time domain scan techniques.

With this white paper, you will learn how an FFT-based EMI test receiver operates with time-domain scan:

  • Compare the architecture of an FFT receiver with a classic test receiver
  • Learn the principles of overlapping in the Time and Frequency Domain
  • See the comparison of measurement speeds
  • Choose the right measurement to for CISPR and MIL-STD testing
