Keysight N9048B PXE EMI Receiver for EMC testing.

Keysight Announces Time Domain and Real Time Scan Capabilities in EMI Receiver Solution

  • Keysight Technologies announced the addition of Time Domain Scan (TDS) and Real Time Scan (RTS) capabilities to the Keysight N9048B PXE Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) receiver.
  • Compliant with CISPR 16-1-1 and MIL-STD-461 standards, this solution enables real time measurements and diagnostics for electromagnetic compliance (EMC) certification.

EMC testing requires detailed and exacting methodologies to ensure that all emissions are accurately measured. Long test times impact test facility availability and reduce the number of devices that can be certified. It’s also easy to miss intermittent disturbance signals with conventional scan mode since long dwell time is required at each frequency.

Keysight’s new TDS and RTS capabilities in the N9048B PXE EMI receiver enable independent compliance test laboratories, as well as in-house self-certification labs, to shorten overall test time and perform gapless signal capture and analysis, certifying that a product meets regulatory compliance standards.

The EMI N9048B PXE PXE PXE receiver, covering three frequency ranges up to 26.5 GHz, complies with CISPR 16-1-1-1-1:2015 and MIL-STD-461G (2015) standards to ensure compliance with global and regional standards.

According to Keysight, its TDS capabilities reduce the scanning and testing time of the receiver from several hours to a few seconds.

Real-time scanning (RTS) capability allows for seamless signal capture and analysis in a bandwidth of up to 350 MHz. The signals of the frequency and time domain as well as their spectrogram are displayed simultaneously with three EMC detectors.
