EMC and Wireless Testing
Design with Confidence. Partner with LSR.
How do you turn a product concept into a market-leading winner for your company? For new electronic products, successfully navigating the landscape of electromagnetic compliance (EMC) and RF certification for all your target markets globally is absolutely critical. But EMC and wireless testing isn’t just a check-the-box task at the end of a long list of project requirements. Planning for EMC and wireless compliance must be there from the very start of the design.
That’s where LSR’s EMC Test Services come in. LSR’s test engineers work with you before, during, and after EMC and wireless radio testing, helping to troubleshoot and advise every step of the way. With a dedicated focus on wireless testing, we bring expertise to your project through a deep understanding of the various certification standards required for market entry across the globe. And because LSR is a manufacturer of RF products itself, you are partnered with engineers who understand the nuances of product development to ensure compliance is achieved.
LSR is ISO/IEC 17025 accredited and specializes in Intentional Radiation Testing required for certification of wireless or RF products. We perform on-site testing for Product and Modular Certifications based on requirements for the FCC, ISED, European Union, Australia / New Zealand, and Japan. For customers who require even broader certifications, LSR also provides additional International Testing Services to complete the required testing and certification documentation for South America and other international countries.
For customers requiring assistance with compliance testing for non-wireless products, LSR also has expertise in General Emissions Testing and Immunity/Susceptibility Testing to the various EMC requirements worldwide.
As your partner throughout your design project, LSR assists in the investigation of appropriate test standards, test plan development, trouble-shooting & failure analysis, documentation review, and comprehensive certification services.
News: AIM Standard 7351731
Over the last several years, the FDA had taken steps to study RFID and its potential effects on medical devices; which included working with the Association for Automatic Identification and Mobility (AIM) to develop a way to test medical devices for their vulnerability to EMI from RFID systems.
In December of 2016, the FDA recognized AIM Standard 7351731 – medical electrical equipment and system electromagnetic immunity test for exposure to radio frequency identification readers, as a consensus standard; identifying it as a requisite test standard for all electrical medical devices with RFID, except for active implanted and in-vitro diagnostic devices; and a mandatory component of 510K approvals.
LSR, a Laird business, is proud to announce it has engineered and validated a test system uniquely capable of providing susceptibility testing compliant to AIM Standard 7351731 for its medical device clients who are seeking 510k approval from the FDA. Our ability to rapidly adapt to new industry requirements, and engineer creative solutions sets Laird apart as a leader in Test Services, and its commitment to our customers.
LSR has invested in all the necessary facilities and equipment to proactively address the rapidly changing compliance requirements for wireless products. This means LSR’s test engineers can execute your product’s test plan efficiently, accurately, and completely.

3D Antenna Chamber
LSR also specializes in on-site antenna patterning, with a new Automated 3D Antenna Measurement System. This dedicated antenna test chamber uses mechanical automation and powerful software to accurately and efficiently perform three-dimensional scanning. This system quickly and efficiently collects spherical antenna pattern data, then generates antenna plots and performance summaries that provide detailed insight into the performance of a product’s antenna design.
In this presentation, EMC design experts from LSR (a Laird Business) will discuss the benefits of using ‘pre-scans’ to minimize the risk of failing FCC certification. Our engineers will walk through a number of practical tips and best practices to use for your next FCC pre-scan.
