Four Steps to Prepare for Wireless Coexistence

Technology trends continue to drive the rapid growth of wireless devices, particularly in the medical industry. These trends have created new challenges for product developers, especially when it comes to the safe operation of their products in increasingly crowded spaces.


Radio Risk Assessment - Radio Equipment Directive (RED) Technical Documentation

The Radio Equipment Directive (RED) requires equipment manufacturers to perform an assessment of their product to essential requirements: safety, EMC, and radio, and in some cases, other categories may also apply. Most manufacturers understand this to mean that they test to some standards and then create their Declaration of Conformity (DoC) to show that they meet the Directive. READ MORE

How to Ensure Regulatory Compliance for your Electronic and Radio Products

Before any digital electronic or radio enabled product can be placed on the market, it must be assessed to ensure it meets the relevant regulatory compliance requirements. These requirements vary per region but may include topics such as product safety, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), radio performance, radio system efficiency, and interoperation with other services.
