Design consultant installs EMC chamber, offers test service

1 min read

ByteSnap Design has expanded its capabilities by launching an early EMC testing service and investing in a testing chamber.

Dunstan Power, ByteSnap's director, said: "The chamber is great news for clients as, through our EMC testing services, they'll get an even more cost effective production service. Our clients will gain a clearer picture of how well the product is working, prior to going through the formal approval process. Our new chamber will identify any issues early and contribute to minimising the cost of fixes and avoiding repeat testing."

The EMC chamber, pictured during delivery, will be also used to make comparative signal strength measurements for low power radios to check performance over time, or the effect of modifications. While this service is not a replacement for R&TTE testing, it will reduce project timescales and increase efficiency, the company claims.

EMC test failure rates can be high, especially in complex projects using current high frequency and high speed components. Early testing minimises the risks of failing the formal EMC test.
