No hanging about for this Easter chick toy. In just five minutes it is given a clean bill of health thanks to new electromagnetic compatibility software said to be five times faster than anything else available. Test house Hursley EMC Services in Eastleigh, Hampshire wrote the Windows-based program in response to demand for its ferrite chamber test services and the need to speed up tests. Each profile is a full run 30MHz to 1000MHz with eight sides and both antenna polarities, giving a well-defined A4 colour plot. A zoom function enables a spectrum analyser to be a very accurate frequency check which will show the 20 worst frequencies, saving time spent on an open area test site. Hursley is considering adapting its software to sell licences.
