EISLAB Embedded EMC
The EMC-Lab at EISLAB has two main purposes. Primarily it will serve as a research and teaching facility (see Related Courses below). It will also serve as a resource for the electronic industry in the region. Research is performed on fundamental electromagnetic problems, using both simulations and experimental approaches. Simulations are made using the PEEC (Partial Element Equivalent Circuit) approach and the experimental work is directed towards EMC barriers.
The EMC lab has a large, fully attenuated, electromagnetically shielded chamber (see further equipment in Misc). The chamber is equipped with antennas, transmission and receiving equipment covering the frequency range 30 MHz - 2.5 GHz. The EMC lab is also a resource to companies producing equipment covered by the European EMC directive or EMC requirements in other countries
Examples of tests performed at EMC Center:
- Emission testing, both conducted and radiated.
- Immunity (susceptibility) testing, both conducted and radiated.
- Transient testing (electrostatic discharge, electric fast transient, surge, burst).
- Electromagnetic shielding efficiency (SE) measurements.
- Measurements of constitutive parameters (permeability, permittivity, electrical conductivity).
