7/19/2002 Kenneth John Webb Page 9 Calibration Summary Meets the calibration requirements of DO-160D Change 1 from 400MHz to 18GHz. Uniformity is marginal from MHz, the allowed standard deviation is acceptable. Above 1 GHz, chamber uniformity is acceptable. Antenna vs probe exceeds the allowed +/-3 dB tolerances using the log periodic antenna. –Using the EMCO 3106 antenna from 400MHz to 2GHz allowed acceptable results Obtained calibration factors needed for emissions testing

18
7/19/2002 Kenneth John Webb Page 18 Dipole Antenna RC Data E Radiated (V/m) is the estimated field strength produced by the dipole antenna R was assumed to be 1m since the final measurement is in volts per meter. D is the equivalent directivity of the dipole. –Determining the correct value would be an interesting experiment. For the purposes of this paper, 1.7 was used. Power into antenna was not linear –Same signal generator was used for both anechoic and reverb chamber data Tx, Rx = the antenna efficiency factors for the transmit and receive antenna respectively –Used 0.75 for a log periodic antenna and 0.9 for a horn antenna

19
7/19/2002 Kenneth John Webb Page 19 Antenna Calibration Factor Equation Needed for emissions calculations for max power radiated Takes into account the antenna losses, gain, and efficiency

20
7/19/2002 Kenneth John Webb Page 20 CCF CCF or Chamber Calibration Factor from eqn CCF is the normalized average received power P AveRec is the average received power over one tuner rotation P Input is the forward power averaged over one tuner rotation. Used emission field level calculations for average recevied power

21
7/19/2002 Kenneth John Webb Page 21 ACF and CLF The chamber loading factor (CLF) is calculated using equation CCF is from equation ACF is from equation Also used for emissions level calculations –Used with Insertion Loss equation for max received power

22
7/19/2002 Kenneth John Webb Page 22 IL IL is from equation Also used for emissions level calculations –Use with max radiated power IL is the normalized maximum received power –Calculated during calibration

32
7/19/2002 Kenneth John Webb Page 32 Dipole Summary Excellent correlation. –2dB delta between rooms for the dipole measurements can be considered validation of the test method. Use the RSS or MAX of the horizontal and vertical polarities –Must use CCF for AVG Power –Use CLF and IL for MAX power Retest RC data with mode stirring also has good correlation to AC –Verifies mode stirring technique using equation for average power

72
7/19/2002 Kenneth John Webb Page 72 Conclusions Laptop data not as good a correlation as the dipole data –The maximum AC data was the best correlation to the RC CCF or CLF data for the Laptop –The RSS or MAX was the best for the dipole Several spikes that were within 10-20dB of each other for the Laptop data –The dwell time of 50ms may not have been long enough to capture the full amplitude. –May be due to dwell time of RC data –Tuner speed may need to be increased/decreased –Use of MAX vs AVG equations for E-field

73
7/19/2002 Kenneth John Webb Page 73 Conclusions Assumption that the Laptop rotation (in six different orientations) could be correlated to the reverb chamber data may be incorrect. –A Laptop orientation (other than the 90 degree changes) may have a higher amplitude emissions. The frequency accuracy may also have been different between the two test methods. –Frequencies may have been off –The tuner may modulate the emissions and change the frequency slightly.

74
7/19/2002 Kenneth John Webb Page 74 Conclusions The method for performing the test and the equation used to calculate the E-fields does appear to have an overall correlation and usefulness. –Generally, the RC had a higher amplitude when using average power equation and mode-stirring –Data trend was similar –Dipole measurements within 2dB Future testing is definite –Spherical dipole radiator – Different dwell/sweep times
