ADAS EMC Testing and Vehicle Antenna Measurement

EMC testing of components and full vehicles have been developed over several decades to include all of the on board electronic and electrical modules, more recent vehicle iterations include an increasing number of modules associated with advanced driver features, controlled by more sophisticated modules, using more diverse sensor types and in some cases, over the air V2X communication. These systems are also part of the EMC test regime.

This presentation kicks off with an introduction to current standards as they relate to the design of chambers used for EMC and antenna  performance measurements. The focus will then shift to a discussion about the pros and cons of chamber designs with a look at some of the different techniques used, with examples of standard chambers that have been designed for EMC and antenna measurements. 


Garth D’Abreu is the Director, Automotive Solutions at ETS-Lindgren based at the corporate headquarters office in Cedar Park, Texas. He currently has primary responsibility for the design and development functions within the Systems Engineering group, specializing in turn-key solutions for Automotive EMC, Wireless and OTA test integration. Some of these more complex full vehicle and ESA test chambers involve his coordination with the RF engineering team on custom components, and the certified, internal Building Information Modeling (BIM) team at ETS-Lindgren. He is also the ETS-Lindgren subject matter expert responsible for the ongoing research and development of Reverberation
chambers, GTEM cells, and supports the RF filters, EMP applications and wireless device test systems groups.  Mr. D’Abreu is a senior member of the IEEE EMC Society and active participant in standards development, on the US ISO and CISPR D automotive EMC standards committees, with over 30 years of experience in the RF industry. He holds a BSc degree in Electronics & Communications Engineering, from North London University (London Metropolitan University), UK.
