Using the Real-time FFT-based measuring Instrument for Full Compliance Automotive Testing, Procedures and Full Automation

PRESENTED BY: Stephan Braun, Gauss
ABSTRACT:

Using the FFT-based measurement systems for EMI testing can reduce test time and improve the repeatability of EMI tests. With the availability of high speed - high resolution ADCs and the large computation power today, FFT-based measurement systems exceed the performance of traditional EMI receivers, regarding noise floor, measurement speed and accuracy. Today a real-time analysis bandwidth up to 685 MHz for Quasi-Peak in full compliance mode is available reducing the test time from 9 hours down to 3 seconds. Real-time scanning allows speeding up testing with spans of several GHz from hours to several milliseconds.

During the presentation the typical setups for conducted and radiated emission testing are presented. Procedures to perform EMI testing with an FFT-based measuring instrument in line with CISPR 16-1-1 as well as CISPR 25 and CISPR 12 are discussed. Procedures to perform the full characterization of the angular radiation patterns of a full vehicle are discussed. The full characterization of the emission is shown. Some automotive measurements covering the topic of e-mobility are discussed.

During the presentation, the technological and mathematical background of FFT-based measurement according to CISPR 16-1-1 and MIL461 is explained. The requirements of CISPR 16-1-1 and MIL461G regarding the implementation as well as the equivalence to a traditional EMI receiver ensure traceability and the same test results. The difference between an FFT-analyzer, a Real-time spectrum analyzer and the FFT-based measurement system are explained. Some pitfalls of using Scopes with FFT-mode or Real-time Spectrum Analyzers for EMI testing are explained.

Modern EMI Receiver Measurement Concepts and 5G mmWave Spurious Testing

PRESENTED BY: Jeremy Cline, Rohde & Schwarz
ABSTRACT:

With all eyes on the 5G wave, this interactive session will discuss the challenges that engineers face when it comes to radiated spurious emission (RSE) testing. RSE testing is just one part of performing fully-compliant EMC measurements, however. This presentation also aims to provide an overview of the latest features available in EMI test receivers, and why they matter to everyday EMC measurements.

Antenna Calibrations for Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Testing

PRESENTED BY: Doug Kramer, ETS-Lindgren
ABSTRACT:

The landscape of EMC testing provides a wide variety of different requirements and test methods. Calibration is the process used to provide the traceability on measurement to the International System of Units (SI). Depending on the product testing method and writing body, the three most commonly referenced documents for antenna calibration are CISPR 16-1-6, ANSI C63.5, and SAE ARP 958. This is a presentation of the three documents most commonly used by EMC testing standards for the calibration of an antenna, how to specify those services as you need them, and when to know the difference.

EV Charger Testing Standards and Power Requirements

PRESENTED BY: Brian Hsu, Preen AC Power Corp.
ABSTRACT:
Before EV charger's ready for installation, it has to do a series of tests to ensure its reliability and safety. For example, input AC characteristic test, control signal test, performance test, safety features and etc. are required test items. We will discuss about the testing standards of Electric Vehicle charging system, testing methods and the testing grid simulator and equipment requirements.

6DoF Sensor: 7576AX MEMS-Based Triaxial Accelerometer in Action

PRESENTED BY: Joel Leifer, Dytran Instruments
ABSTRACT:
The Dytran 7576A Series consists of analog six degree of freedom (6DoF) sensors containing a MEMS-based triaxial accelerometer as well as three MEMS-based gyros. The sensor detects X, Y, Z acceleration (g’s) as well as angular rate in degrees/second (which can be integrated into roll, pitch and yaw) around three orthogonal axes. The 7576A Series sensors produce a single analog output per measurement channel. There are six measuring channels available for X, Y, and Z directions (acceleration along the axis and rotational rate around the axis). The sensor is powered with any power supply that can produce voltages from 5 to 30 VDC with at least 12 mA of current. The 7576A Series is designed to have zero volts output for zero Engineering Units nominal input, eliminating DC offsets typically found in many sensors of this type. These 6DoF sensors come in a compact, lightweight, rugged titanium package that is hermetically sealed for harsh environment survival. The Series also features a removable cable for convenience during installation and removal from the test article. The 7576A Series is versatile with test applications including, but not limited to: vehicle dynamics, ride/handling, rollover, automotive safety, and large machinery including industrial off-road.
