Technology Innovation Institute (TII), the applied research pillar of the Advanced Technology Research Council (ATRC), has unveiled its Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) laboratories in Abu Dhabi, in a first of its kind facility in the region. Unveiled by TII’s Directed Energy Research Centre (DERC), the facility is composed of three laboratories – an EMC semi-anechoic chamber, a pulsed power laboratory, and a low-noise emanation laboratory. The DERC facility enables key technologies to be evaluated against electromagnetic compatibility and interference by reproducing man-made and natural electromagnetic hazards in the pulsed power and semi-anechoic chambers.

The direct connection between the two chambers enables a diversity of experiments involving 100’s of kV nanosecond pulses and multi-megawatt microwaves systems. The laboratories have been designed to host different categories of equipment such as connected objects of the Internet of Things, drones and autonomous cars, telecommunications equipment, medical devices, automotive equipment and IT equipment and is fully automated for tests and measurements. A unique low-noise emanation lab...read more...
