FULL TDEMI: FASTER EMI MEASUREMENTS AT A LOWER COST

The Electromagnetic Compatibility Group (GCEM UPC) has developed a new electromagnetic interference (EMI) receiver, based on measuring in the time domain. The new device is called Full TDEMI and can be used to measure compliance with provisions in the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive 2014/30 /EU, which must be met by all electrical and electronic equipment. Full TDEMI works faster and costs less than other EMI receivers on the market.

This new measuring receiver is based on a combination of commonly used oscilloscopes and specific software for the post-processing of data. This new family of equipment can be used to measure the EMI that is conducted and radiated at high speed, thus complying with the requirements of CISPR / MIL-STD. The use of oscilloscopes permits synchronous multi-channel measurement and characterisation of transients at low economic cost.

Full TDEMI was developed from the results of a European Research project JRP IND60 Improved EMC test methods in industrial environments, funded by EURAMET and led by TUBITAK-UME from Turkey.
