Anyone knows any TEM Cell manual? - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Good day people.

I'm currently doing an undergraduate project on EMC. I'm supposed to build a simple TEM Cell for the measurement of radiated emission from IC. Anyone knows where to find a TEM Cell manual or specification or something that may help? I try the web but couldnt find any. Hope anyone can help me out.

Great thanks!

Cheers,
teokun

Teokun,

It is quite simple.

1. The TEM cell is a coaxial cable. The physical relationship for a 50 Ohm coax cable (in air) should be maintained all throughout the expansion (RF input) sector, the continous sector and the terminating sector (The one where there is supposed to be a dummy load).

2. The maximum operating frequency is proportional to one quarter wavelength between the center conductor and the metal cabinet.

3. The field strength is (for practical terms) U = SQRT (P * R) [R=50] If used for Radiated Immunity tests.

(Provided that the device under test is smaller than the width of the flat center conductor and that it is placed 1/2 distance between the ground and the center conductor.

Using white plastic foam is recommended for DUT support.
