Overcoming the Top 5 Challenges of Harmonic Measurement

Harmonics-Measurement-WP-Cover

Strict electromagnetic regulations require verification of emissions compliance of all wireless products. In the past, you could usually ensure compliance by examining typical spurious and harmonic emissions from a limited number of prototypes. However, current wireless technology has pushed the limits of semiconductor capabilities to the point where there is little margin between typical emissions and regulatory limits. As a consequence, it is no longer prudent to assume compliance based on testing a few prototypes. To guarantee compliance, it is often essential to measure emissions on a unit-by-unit basis in production.

This white paper provides a use case that illustrates the importance of harmonic measurements in modern wireless products, details several of the key challenges involved, and presents a newly available, cost-effective approach to harmonic measurement.
