Electromagnetic compatibility is the ability of equipment or systems to function satisfactorily in their electromagnetic environment without introducing intolerable electromagnetic disturbance to anything in that environment. EMC testing is a series of tests to ensure the product’s electromagnetic compatibility.
EMC compliance is a mandatory requirement in most markets including Europe, the U.S., China, Korea, Australia and New Zealand. EMC testing is necessary to help you meet regulatory requirements, improve product performance and reduce the risk of costly non-compliance. Third-party EMC tests and conformity assessments also help to strengthen your competitive position in the market.
It is important to consider EMC requirements from the beginning of the product design cycle, apply good EMC engineering practices, provide a list of sources of clock and critical EMC components, and prepare supporting equipment with satisfactory EMC performance.
