Covering a span of 9 kHz to 30 MHz, the PMM 9010F EMI receiver and real-time analyzer from Narda Safety Test Solutions scans the entire spectrum in less than 25 seconds when the device is adjusted to the full CISPR setting. This setting includes a hold time of 1 second, a preselector switched to the on position, a CISPR resolution bandwidth of 200 Hz, as well as 9 kHz, and CISPR detectors that include Peak, Quasi-Peak, C-AVG, C-RMS, and RMS-AVG.
The PMM 9010F's standard frequency range of 10 Hz to 30 MHz is expandable up to 18 GHz by using external modules, such as the 9030, 9060, and 9180. In full compliance with CISPR 16-1-1 and IEC-EN standards, the receiver uses FFT spectrum analysis to reduce test time and improve accuracy. It also provides users with immediate feedback of all measurement detectors. An internal preamplifier reduces the noise floor to less than -24 dBµV in band A (9 kHz to 150 kHz) and -7 dBµV in band B (150 kHz to 30 MHz), corresponding to less than -154 dBm/Hz in both cases.
Prices for the PMM 9010F EMI receiver start at $24,500. Delivery is 8 to 12 weeks ARO. You can order the PMM 9010F through Teseq http://www.teseq.com/com/en/index.php, the exclusive North American distributor of the PMM brand.
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
