The anechoic chamber in MINATEC’s Integrative Industries Building (B2I) wasn’t designed for electromagnetic interference (EMI) testing—but it turns out to be a perfect fit. Researchers have successfully performed EMI tests in the chamber to analyze and help certify electronic devices made by Grenoble-based start-ups.
Because the chamber is shielded against electromagnetic fields and prevents them from being reflected, researchers can use it to measure low- to very-low-frequency electromagnetic fields. And its 2,880 m3 volume means researchers can take near-field and far-field measurements.
The chamber was initially designed to test antennas, but has found a new calling with EMI testing to analyze electronic systems, with a view to their enhancement and certification.
