Anechoic Chamber?

Hey guys,

I’ve been looking around and reached out to a couple of wireless and radio professionals on linkedin but thought it would be better to ask here.

They have been recommending that I should test my electronics within an anechoic chamber but today was the first day that i actually looked into what they are and why they are needed.

Has anyone here have any experience with them? If so can you recommend a company which provides them?

Thanks in advance,

Ronald

Hey Ronald,

Anechoic chambers are a vital since they simulate a quiet open-space of infinite dimension, which is useful when exterior influences would otherwise give false results.

I used to work for a electronics company who manufactured circuit boards for satellites where we tested for “free field” conditions (free-field meaning that there are no reflected signals)

The company we used, which I recommend highly is, http://www.emscan.com. They’ve been around for quite some time and done similar work with Nasa and other aviation / electronic manufacturers.

Hope this helps.
