Anechoic Chamber

Anechoic Chamber Measurements

In a world of ever improving communication technologies, spectrum regulators around the globe play a key role in aiding the early adoption of such advancements. This they do, by licensing and approving new electronic devices that utilize the radio spectrum in their operation. However, to ensure that such products do not cause harm to the public or harmful interference to other licensed spectrum users, Electromagnetic Compatibility and Emissions (EMC/EMI) tests are required to be passed by importers and suppliers.
