EMC certification is a required step in bringing any electronic device to market, as it demonstrates safe and reliable operation. Failing EMC compliance testing, due to faulty designs, can result in costly product delays. The N9048B PXE EMI enables independent compliance test laboratories and companies with in-house self-certification labs to make radiated and conducted emissions tests, certifying that a product meets local regulatory compliance standards.
"The introduction of Keysight's PXE EMI receiver simplifies the test efforts of global EMC test labs," said Joe Rickert, vice president and general manager of high frequency measurement R&D for Keysight's communications solutions group. "With compliance adhering to the highest international standards, industry leading performance, and EMC focused application software, certification labs can confidently handle any new product that is requires compliance testing."
The N9048B PXE EMI receiver, with three frequency ranges up to 26.5 GHz, allows detection of small signals close to the noise level, common in radiated emissions measurements. It supports full compliance with CISPR 16-1-1 and MIL-STD-461 international standards, ensuring devices comply with any worldwide standards, and has a time domain scan (TDS) capability that provides dwell measurement requirements while reducing receiver scan and test time.
