EMC Amplifier

An Introduction to EMC Amplifiers

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.

This white paper describes not only the basics but also intricacies, and discusses parameters and characteristics which have the greatest influence on amplifier performance. A technical overview of EMC amplifiers as well as a practical discussion of how amplifier class, compression points, VSWR, foldback, etc. impact amplifier performance in real-world scenarios.

EMC Testing

New EMI Test Capabilities to Characterize Failing Emissions

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.

CF Filter

Converter EMI Power Filters

The CF Series is an EMI Filter family designated for use with DC-DC Converters. Even though many DC-DC converters have internal filters, often the internal filter is inadequate to meet the international, FCC and Military requirements. The product line is manufactured with RUGGEDIZED construction and can be HERMETICALLY sealed.
