Design with Confidence
At Laird Connectivity, our test engineers work with you before, during and after EMC testing. We help troubleshoot and advise every step of the way. With a dedicated focus on wireless testing, we bring expertise to your project through a deep understanding of the various certification standards required for market entry across the globe.
Because Laird manufactures RF solutions, our engineers understand the nuances of product development to ensure your products achieve compliance.
Laird Conectivity is ISO/IEC 17025 accredited and specializes in Intentional Radiation Testing required for certification of wireless or RF products. We perform testing for Certifications based on requirements for the US, Canada, European Union, Australia / New Zealand, and Japan.
For customers who require global certifications, we provide additional international testing services to complete the required testing and certification.
If you need assistance with compliance testing for non-wireless products, we also offer expertise in General Emissions Testing and Immunity/Susceptibility Testing to various EMC requirements worldwide.
Using 30 years of experience, Laird Connectivity can help provide troubleshooting and failure analysis if issues arise during the compliance phase of your project.
Laird Connectivity has invested in the necessary facilities and equipment to proactively address the rapidly changing compliance requirements for wireless products. This means our test engineers can execute your product's test plan efficiently, accurately and holistically. Our Laboratory operates on multiple shifts allowing faster turnaround or expedited schedule. Our team of EMC engineers can provide regulation expertise, assist with test plan generation, and mitigate failures.

3D Antenna Chamber
We specialize in on-site antenna patterning with a new Automated 3D Antenna Measurement System. This system quickly and efficiently collects spherical antenna pattern data, then generates antenna plots and performance summaries that provide detailed insight into the performance of a product’s antenna design.
Flexible Laboratory Space
Benches, test stations, and equipment are mobile, allowing the workspace to adapt to your product, rather than the product having to conform to the space. Flexible laboratory strategy can reduce test setup time, and provide greater consistency in test configurations. Equipped with both horizontal and vertical ground planes.
- Electrically Fast Transient Immunity
- Lightning Surge
- Electrostatic Discharge
- Magnetic Field Immunity
- Radiated/Conducted Disturbances
- Voltage Fluctuations/Short Interrupts
Test Plan Development
Laird Connectivity will understand your application and the markets you plan to enter, and develop a cost-effective and time-sensitive plan to release your product to market.
