## Thank you

One important EMC compliance test is to determine whether external RF fields can affect your product. This test is also often referred to as radiated immunity or radiated susceptibility testing and is defined by the IEC 61000-4-3 standard for commercial products. For commercial products, the test is usually performed from 80 to 1,000 MHz at E-field levels from 3 to 20 V/m depending on the product environment or application. The test is performed in a shielded semi-anechoic chamber using a broadband antenna to transmit the RF in the direction of the product under test. The shielded chamber prevents interference to other communications services. Some military, vehicular, or aerospace applications require testing to 200 to 1,000 V/m and frequencies up to 18 GHz or more. The RF signal is generally modulated by a 1,000 Hz AM sine wave modulation set to 80% for commercial testing and either square wave or short-duration (at times less than 1%) pulsed modulation, typically at 1 kHz for military and aerospace testing. The modulation is designed to test for audio rectification issues (or radar pulse interference for military testing). For example, if the RF signal is rectified by semiconductor junctions or in audio or other analog circuitry, the low-frequency modulation could cause bias upsets or otherwise disrupt sensitive analog circuitry.
