Electromagnetic Compatibility Measurements Procedure for Vehicle Components - Part 27 - Immunity to Radiated Electromagnetic Fields - Mode Stir Reverberation Method
|Publication Date:||1 June 2012|
This document provides the component design and test engineers with a test procedure and the performance requirements necessary to quickly evaluate the immunity of electronic devices to radiated electromagnetic fields early in the design stage as well as pilot and production stages. This method is an alternative to testing in an absorber lined chamber. Ensuring electromagnetic compatibility early in the development stage will minimize costly changes later in the program and will prevent excessive component level hardening during full-vehicle level testing.
The reverberation test method performs a dual function:
The primary function of the method is to provide a bench test procedure correlative to vehicle-level radiated immunity testing in the anechoic chamber and at mobile transmitter sites.
The method can quickly evaluate the relative performance of different designs of the same device.
