IEC 61000-4-4: Electrical Fast Transient / Burst Immunity Test immunity

Electronic products are tested to IEC 61000-4-4: Electrical Fast Transient / Burst Immunity Test immunity to insure their continued reliable operation if subjected to realistic levels of fast transients. The European Union’s EMC Directive mandates the Electrical Fast Transient / Burst Immunity Test testing for virtually all electrical and electronic […]


EMC (EMI) Electromagnetic Interference Testing

EMI (electromagnetic interference) is the disruption of operation of an electronic device when it is in the vicinity of an electromagnetic field in the radio frequency spectrum. These emissions can interfere with the performance of wireless receivers nearby. Moderate or high-powered wireless transmitters can produce EM fields strong enough to […]
