This white paper explains how addressing parameters such as frequency positions, levels, bandwidths, operating conditions and signal types with customised blocking tests can better verify RF device performance for real-life environments.

Signal interference can pose a great threat to new Wi-Fi modules. For wireless coexistence, the CE mark indicates a receiver function’s minimum robustness. However, as the EN’s standards do not meet real-world conditions, a more reliable testing scenario is needed. By combining different methods, e.g. RED/ETSI based standards alongside observations from experience, it is possible to gain a more accurate view of an RF receiver’s robustness.

3 key learning outcomes:

  • Setting up and running customised blocking tests
  • Issues around existing EN standards
  • RF device performance
