Testing Conducted Emission in the R&D Lab with an Oscilloscope
Conducted emissions are electromagnetic disturbances caused by a device and conducted out by interconnects such as the power supply lines. Devices are required to pass stringent limits on the level of such emissions and these tests require expensive testing time at compliance laboratories. This video shows how the powerful spectrum analysis features in the R&S RTO oscilloscope can be used to verify conducted emission levels relative to the requirements during development thereby ensuring passing results in the compliance laboratory.
