Narda Presents “Limitations of Active Rod Antennas in Emission Testing – Part 2: Measurements”
Click here to download a copy of the presentation.
Overview: This webinar will discuss the results from a practical solution to the intrinsic limitations and drawbacks, such as impedance variations, of rod antennas as used for emissions testing. The solution consists in using a fiber optic instead of a coax cable, and by connecting the antenna rod directly to an embedded EMI receiver. By integrating the receiver with the antenna, the drawbacks of transferring the RF signal via fiber optic in analog mode are avoided. This webinar should be attended by all compliance and test engineers, especially those involved in military and automotive electronics, and any engineer involved in testing to CISPR 12, CISPR 16, CISPR 25, MIL-STD, and DO-160.
