EMC and TEM Cell - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hallo,

I am using a TEM Cell to measure the Radiated Emissions for a microcontroller Core..

Strange but when i connected a empty TEM cell to Spectrum anaylser there are some radiations seen in low frequency and mobile range(This is understandable) , Can anyone tell me why is this, what could be done to improve or rather eliminate it..Are these disturbances already considered in IEC specifications or TEM cell has improper calibrations..

Please reply.,

Hi,

have you checked your cables? If you are using cables with bad shielding you might have signals entering this way. Try also to put a 50ohm load in the other end of the TEM. Last - it could be stong signals entering your analyzer and you then need a shielded room for your measurements.

Regards
Jens

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
