Updates on CISPR 32 and CISPR 35 and Size of Devices to Be Measured at 3m


Andy Griffin, Cisco Systems


The first part of the presentation provides a quick review of the status of the EMC standards for Multimedia Equipment (MME). CISPR 32 emission standard which replaces CISPR 22 & 13 and the draft immunity standard CISPR 35 (which will replace CISPR 24 & 20). The second part addresses the issues of the size of equipment that should be measured at 3m, for radiated electric field emissions, in the frequency range 30MHz to 1GHz. Different standards take a different approach and therefore it would beneficial if a common approach was adopted based upon measurements as well as from a pragmatic perspective, i.e. not just 'because we know'...
