- Test site correction.
It is well known that test sites contribute the dominant source of error for radiated emissions measurements. These errors are due to reflections from surrounding hardware, lack of ground plane and lack of height scanning. Such errors amount to over 15dB on typical ‘informal’ sites. Laplace has developed a technique which measures these errors, and applies corrections to the measured signal such that the errors are substantially reduced. This technique involves the use of an ERS (reference source) and the EMCEngineer software. This software includes a menu item that prompts the user through the site calibration process, checks the integrity of the results then will apply the appropriate corrections to the EUT measurements. See…(test site correction paper)
- Ambient noise reduction.
A key problem with any noise reduction technique is that ambient RF fluctuates significantly. The software is able to measure ambient RF in such a way that short term variations are stabilised and an accurate measurement of EUT emissions can be achieved. This technique has been proved to work even when the EUT emission level is significantly below the noise level. See…. (ambient noise paper)
