2 Agenda EMI Receiver Requirements Architecture Improvements Digital IF 2dB Attenuation Improved Upgradability Processor, I/O storage Enhanced Diagnostic capability Enhanced Application capability

3 What is an EMI Receiver? Let s begin with a spectrum analyzer Spectrum Analysis Display and measure amplitude versus frequency for RF & MW signals Separate or demodulate complex signals into their base components (sine waves) 3

4 Theory of Operation Swept Spectrum Analyzer Block Diagram RF input attenuator mixer IF gain IF filter (RBW) envelope detector Input signal Pre-Selector Or Low Pass Input Filter local oscillator Log Amp video filter sweep generator Crystal Reference Oscillator ADC, Display & Video Processing 4

5 Compliance EMI receiver requirements A CISPR receiver must have the following functionality in the range 9 khz - 18 GHz: A normal +/- 2 db absolute accuracy CISPR-specified resolution bandwidths (-6 db) Peak, quasi-peak, EMI average, and RMS average detectors Specified input impedance with a nominal value of 50 ohms; deviations specified as VSWR Be able to pass product immunity in a 3 V/m field Be able to pass the CISPR pulse test (implies pre-selector below 1 GHz) Other specific harmonic and intermodulation requirements

6 Receiver requirements above 1 GHz Above 1 GHz regulations require: 1 MHz bandwidth for measurements No quasi-peak detector No CISPR pulse test, meaning no additional pre-selector required excellent sensitivity According to current FCC regulations, the maximum test frequency is the fifth harmonic of the highest clock frequency for an unintentional radiator (for example, computers without wireless connectivity) and the tenth harmonic for an intentional radiator (such as a cellular phone or wireless LAN). 6

7 MXE Preselector Simplified Block Diagram RF In 1 Bypass Switch RF In 2 Limiter Attenuators Input Switch Conducted Filter Assembly (13 filter paths) Conducted Band Preamp & Overload Detector * Limiter and Pre-Filters Band Switch * Band Switch * Radiated Filter Board (7 filter paths) Radiated Band Preamp & Overload Detector * * On Input Assembly 7

8 LB 20 Hz -1GHz CFB INB DDS RFB Noise Source

9 RF Pre-selection (RF input filtering) Purpose of RF pre-selection Help to prevent overload by reducing the total energy at the input mixer The RF preselector tracks the center frequency of the EMI receiver The bandwidth of the RF preselector is wider that the widest RBW used Useful in measuring broadband signals Narrow band signals Broadband signals
