Product Compliance Challenges for Wireless Radio Devices in Vehicles


Designing wireless products for normal commercial environments is well understood by most designers. However, because vehicle regulations are different from the normal Federal Communications Commission (FCC) or European Commission (EC) marking requirements, manufacturers often struggle to find, test, and certify to ensure they meet all the applicable requirements, given that most EMC requirements relate to performance, whereas automotive EMC is all about maintaining the safety of the vehicle. Manufacturers often get confused why, for example, radiated susceptibility levels for a Wi-Fi router are 3V/m unless it is used in a vehicle, in which instance it is more like 30V/m.

This 30-minute Webinar will shine light on the industry and legislative requirements to ensure that manufacturers can create compliance strategies that are right for their products such as such as sensors, ECUs, receivers, and broadcast reception equipment. An audience Q&A session will follow the technical presentation.
