Resolving Uncertainty in CISPR, MIL-STD and Emissions Testing by Reducing Limitations of Active Rod Antennas
Overview: This webinar will discuss the general characteristics of rod antennas as used for emissions testing, and some of the intrinsic design limitations and drawbacks, such as impedance values. Some of the ways to overcome these drawbacks include using a fiber optic instead of a coax cable, and by connecting the antenna directly to an EMI receiver; this gains better control of the antenna behavior, and the receiver is able to measure the rod antenna’s critical parameters continuously. 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.
After graduating in Electrotechnics in 1976 and serving in the Army (Telecommunications), Roberto has been involved in promoting high-profile T&M equipment since the early 80’s in almost all applications fields from vibration analysis to RF, including EMC, and digital. From the 90’s he has developed his career in international sales and marketing of diversified technical equipment. Roberto joined Narda Safety Test Solutions (Italy) in 2005 as International Sales Manager for the EMC product line branded PMM, and is currently involved in the development of innovative solutions.
