5G EMC Testing

Minimizing RF Radiation Exposure!

The Vital Role of RF Shielding!

The Vital Role of RF Shielding!  In our increasingly interconnected world, the reliance on wireless technology has grown exponentially.  From smartphones and IoT gadgets to 5G networks, these innovations have made our lives more convenient and efficient.  This proliferation comes with a new challenge:  managing the radio frequency (RF) spectrum effectively.  RF Shielding is the practice of using materials and design to block or reduce electromagnetic radiation in the RF spectrum.  Its primary purpose is to prevent electromagnetic interference (EMI)...

EMC Testing and RF Shielding-Related!

EMC Testing and RF Shielding-Related!  EMC testing determines whether an electronic device will be able to work optimally with other devices in a shared electromagnetic environment.  There are two issues that EMC testing evaluates, radiated emissions and susceptibility to RF emissions.  Every electronic device radiates RF emissions into its environment.  There are standard levels of emission that each class of product may emit.  If the emissions exceed the standard, the device will require modifications to reduce its emissions to the...

Upcoming Issues and Solutions in EMC!

Upcoming Issues and Solutions in EMC!  Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) is a crucial consideration in today's increasingly connected world.  As the technology continues to evolve, new challenges and issues in EMC will continue to emerge.  Here are some of these upcoming issues and potential solutions: IoT and Wireless technologies- The rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) devices and the roll out of 5G networks bring about EMC challenges.  In order to address this, manufacturers must improve EMI shielding and...
The Remarkable Evolution of EMC!

The Remarkable Evolution of EMC!

The Remarkable Evolution of EMC!  Electromagnetic Compatibility EMC is a critical field that has evolved significantly from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  In its infancy, EMC was primarily concerned with ensuring that radio communication and early electrical devices could operate without interference.  Today, EMC plays a pivotal role in the design and the regulation of electronic systems, their emissions, and their susceptibility to emissions, that define our modern world.  In the early 20th century, the advent of radio...

Pre-Compliance EMC Testing-Worth the Time!

Pre-Compliance EMC Testing-Worth the Time!  Developing a new product?  Build EMC into your device by testing it regularly during the development process.  Pre-Compliance EMC Testing during development helps you locate and correct EMC issues at home in your facility. This spares you the time and expense of testing at a registered compliance lab.  An RF Shielded EMC Enclosure provides the low ambient RF level necessary to test your product for emissions, susceptibility, and immunity.  The equipment required to do your...
Nothing is "simple"-anymore-needs Change!

Nothing is “simple” anymore-needs Change!

Nothing is "simple" anymore-needs Change!  When I first came to VTT, our manufacturing product line was fairly simple.  RF Shielded Enclosures, RF Shielding Curtains, RF Shielding Garments were about it!  Today, we find that our customers are always finding new and different needs for our conductive textile products.  An RF Shielded enclosure has become a "suite" of rooms with more isolation than ever.  Requests for Foyers, removable walls, are routine requests rather than unusual.  RF Shielding Curtains are now "arrays...
Megastructures-RF Shielded Enclosures for Giants!

RF Shielded EMC Testing Enclosures-Size Matters!

RF Shielded EMC Testing Enclosures-Size Matters!  Electronic devices come in all sizes.  All of the devices require EMC Compliance Testing in order to be marketed.  This testing determines whether the device can work effectively in a shared electromagnetic environment.  All devices emit RFI radiation and electromagnetic fields.  These emissions can adversely affect the function of the other devices.  The problem boils down to two terms, emissions or susceptibility.  The RF emissions of an electronic device must meet certain applicable standards. ...

EMC Compliance Testing-what’s the Point?

EMC Compliance Testing-what's the Point?  Every electronic device must pass EMC Compliance Testing to make it to the market!  The reason for this requirement is to lessen the amount of RFI/ EMI in our environment.  More importantly, it is to lessen the RFI and EMI in our environment that adversely affects the function of other devices present in the shared electromagnetic environment.  All electronic devices emit RFI/EMI.  In general, electromagnetic interference doesn't cause a decrease in function of the devices...
RF Shielded Enclosures- Choose your Series!

RF Shielded Enclosures-Testing at Home!

RF Shielded Enclosures-testing at Home!  Preparing for Final Compliance EMC Testing is difficult.  One of the best ways to prepare for this test is to prepare your product during development.  Testing your product in your home environment during development builds EMC into your device from the start and is the best way to proceed.  Pre-Compliance EMC Testing can be done easily at your development site.  It actually saves time in development, by intercepting EMC issues along the way rather than...
