Radiated emissions will most likely be your highest risk when performing compliance testing at the test facility. With all the high-speed digital circuitry inside electronic products today, it becomes all too easy for harmonics of the clock frequencies and other fast-edged devices to radiate EM fields. Typically, failure modes will be cable radiation or leakage from enclosure seams or apertures. This handy checklist can be used either as a pretest check prior to compliance testing or as a check following a test failure.
