Element San Jose

Element San Jose (formerly known as PCTEST San Jose) was founded in 1989 by a group of former Federal Communications Commission (FCC) engineers, to meet the growing needs of many of the world’s leading technology product manufacturers, to have their products and devices independently tested against a diverse range of FCC regulatory requirements. 

Following its formation, the laboratory rapidly became a specialist provider of Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) testing, Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC) and Over the Air (OTA) testing and certifcation services to the international mobile device and cellular sector.

In 2011 Element Columbia became a Verizon Wireless Authorized Test Facility for 4G/Long Term Evolution (LTE), which complimented its service range at the time.

The laboratory’s full service range of testing and certifcation services includes:


Element San Jose is now the preferred, independent test house for many of the major cell/smart phone and electronic device manufacturers operating world-wide today.
