USB-SD-Mux: EMC Testing

Chris Fiege | | USB-SD-Mux

Today Jonas and I went to our EMC testing lab to continue the measurements needed to certify electromagnetic compatibility for the USB-SD-Mux.

To make it short: It has passed the radiation tests. In the end we found out that it wasn't the USB-SD-Mux itself that caused us a lot of headache. We are now quite confident that most radiation was caused by the system we used to stimulate the USB-SD-Mux. In the end we had the stimulation-box (containing a Beagle Bone Black) hidden behind multiple absorber-panels beneath the measurement table. This way we were able to dampen enough noise to pass tests. It seems for our next measurements we need to find something other than a Beagle Bone Black for that.

This brings us a lot closer to finally bring the USB-SD-Mux to you. But testing is not completely done: Next step is to pass the RF-immunity tests. We keep our fingers crossed!
