Automotive EMC

Automotive electromagnetic compatibility

EMC and field strength test solutions from the world market leader

Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electromagnetic interference (EMI) test instruments and systems determine the causes and effects of electromagnetic interference and ensure compliance with the relevant EMC standard. The EMC test solutions support all relevant commercial, automotive, military and aerospace standards as well as ETSI and FCC standards for radiated spurious emissions and audio breakthrough measurements. EMI debugging helps to save time and money before complex testing in an EMC chamber is carried out.

Your challenges

As vehicles continue to integrate an increasing number of RF standards, radar and high-speed data buses, verifying that unwanted electronics emissions are within specified limits and that cars are immune to disturbances from external sources (TV transmitters, mobile base stations or other electronic car components) is becoming an ever-growing challenge for car manufacturers.

With the increase in electronic devices and wireless technologies, all electronic car components have to meet car manufacturer specifications for EMI and EMS.

As a world market leader with decades of experience in the EMC measurements field, Rohde & Schwarz delivers effective turnkey and custom test systems to perform EMI and EMS measurements in line with all major automotive EMC standards for vehicles and car components. Our exceptional range of EMC test equipment, from standalone instruments to customized turnkey test chambers, help you quickly detect, analyze and solve any EMC problems.
