Radio Frequency Testing

Radio frequency compliance is a mandatory requirement in most international markets including the EU and USA. If you manufacture wireless devices or incorporate wireless devices into your product, you must comply with the regulations of your intended markets, otherwise your products cannot be legally sold. Radio frequency testing covers technology such as Wi-Fi, Zigbee, RFID, NFC, GPS, cellular technologies and more. Other tests are also usually required to verify that a device meets local regulations for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), electrical safety and radio frequency exposure.
