This combined workshop is presented in two parts during one full day. Topics covered include: (1) review of the new 2014 edition of ANSI C63.4 and (2) preview of the draft ANSI C63.25 site validation document and application of Time Domain (TD) measurements for test site validation and antenna calibration. These workshops are designed to increase your understanding of the new C63.4 standard and the TD approach. For the C63.4 workshop, there will be an analysis of the test site validation including using the CISPR SVSWR method above 1 GHz, requirements for hybrid antenna use, test setup requirements and many other changes from that of the previous edition in 2009. Application of time domain methods to validating test sites will also be presented along with a demonstration using a Keysight PNA microwave network analyzer. As time permits, attendees will get a chance to apply what they learned via problem solving and/or participating in the real-time time domain demonstration.


In the C63.4 workshop, you will learn changes between the 2009 and 2014 editions in these areas:

  • RF emission measurement procedures above 1 GHz
  • Regulatory implications
  • Test facility changes and hybrid antenna validation
  • Handling tablet PCs, rack-mounted equipment and visual displays
  • The basic information contained in the CISPR 32 (multimedia, IT and receivers) testing Approach


In the Time Domain (C63.25 draft) workshop, you will learn:

  • Application for site validation
  • Application for antenna calibration
  • Updates on the draft standard
  • Support material provided
  • A complete lecture flash drive
