PROJECT TITLE :
Electromagnetic compatibility aware design and testing of intermodulation distortion under multiple co-located sources illumination
Current electromagnetic immunity tests mainly rely on single-frequency sources. However, the evolution of electronic systems leads to miniaturisation and low-cost solutions, in which filters are omitted in front of active non-linear components, also for efficiency reasons. As a result, intermodulation products may leak into the band of operation. The authors propose a comprehensive strategy consisting of design and test methodologies to evaluate in-the-band leakage of out-of-band undesired components, using multiple-tone excitation and relying on an anechoic chamber as test facility. The aim of this study is to demonstrate that an anechoic chamber together with a dual-source network analyser represents an optimal facility to investigate signal integrity issues owing to leakage of intermodulation products.
