    Effect of EMC tests on RF frequencies or RF modules

    I want to know that what are the effects of EMC tests (Fast Transient Burst and Surge) on RF modules and radio frequencies

    Re: Effect of EMC tests on RF frequencies or RF modules

    EMC testing serves to find how e.g. transient bursts and surges affects component or system functioning.
    Such effects usually destroy or push out of operation sensitive components. Thus they should be protected from such damage by design. At system operating frequencies the interference is defined by IEC standards.

    EMC also include radiated MASK test and spurious emssion test, that is very important to pass the type approval certification.

    For example, EMC burst can mess control registers of VCO (if used). Or go through antenna directly to schottky diodes or FET and burn it out.
