Wireless technology leads to a need for enhanced EMC tests and services

23 May 2014

The wider integration of wireless technology into products has caused a shift in electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) test services from classic or non-wireless testing to wireless testing. This has resulted in a higher number of new frequency bands which, in turn, has created a need for noise and emission reduction, making a strong case for enhanced EMC tests and services. 

According to new analysis from Frost & Sullivan – The European Electromagnetic Compatibility Test and Services Market – the integration and implementation of new technologies, as well as the increasing complexity of electronic equipment, will require enhanced types of testing services. Frost & Sullivan measurement & instrumentation research analyst, Rohan Joy Thomas, said: “There will be the demand for EMC test equipment such as electromagnetic interference (EMI) test receivers, which are capable of more and quicker measurements, and spectrum analysers that are faster as well as more efficient and versatile.” 

The market will be sustained by the advances in the automotive industry, where there is intense activity around electric and hybrid vehicles, where these high voltage power sources could lead to more emissions of radiation, which can pollute the environment, or interfere with other electric equipment.
