EMC Testing and RF Testing

What is EMC TESTING?

Electromagnetic Compatibility or EMC is the ability of different electronic devices and components to work correctly and operate without mutual interference, despite the presence of other devices that emit electromagnetic fields. All electronic devices have the potential to emit electromagnetic fields and influence each other when interconnected or close to each other, e.g. interference between TV sets, GSM handsets, radios and nearby washing machine or electrical power lines.

EMC Testing Procedure:

Our test specialists have strong experience in this testing area. In addition, product requirements are investigated in detail during offer creation and test planning is always done based on the customer’s needs. Our test facilities are located in Oulu, Finland.

Our accredited EMC  and RF test services include:

Emission Testing:

  • Conducted Emissions
  • Radiated Emissions
  • Radiated Spurious Emissions

RF Testing:

  • Radiated spurious emission testing for e.g GSM, WCDMA, LTE, Bluetooth, WLAN

Immunity Testing:

  • Radiated RF field
  • Radio frequency common mode
  • Burst, Surge, Electrical Fast Transients, Voltage dips and interruptions
  • Power and pulsed magnetic fields
  • ESD

Pre-Compliance EMC Testing​

Pre-Compliance tests during the R&D phase are important to ensure your product quality and a smooth certification process. We can offer Pre-Compliance EMC Testing services beyond our current accreditation scope for consumer, medical and industrial products.

We are happy provide more detailed information and make a proposal how we can verify your product’s Electromagnetic compatibility.

rADIO & lte-iOt

We are able to test a wide array of products, but radio devices are part of our long heritage and thus we are much more experienced in radio testing. We have a long experience in Bluetooth, WLAN, 2G, 3G, 4G  RFID, NFC and GNSS.

LTE-IoT (M1 and NB) is our focus area; we have expertise in multiple LTE-IoT radio modules. To ensure tests coverage, our lab supports up to 53 LTE frequency bands!
