Application Note #118: Automotive 600V/m Pulse Radar Test with a Dual-Mode Amplifier
This Application Note outlines and describes a better understanding of the required power levels to meet the automotive specification defined by Ford and GM.
The standards reference mandate 600 V/m automotive testing is necessary due to electromagnetic fields that exist in today's busy airwaves/environment. In particular, radar emissions (Pulsed RF) that are emitted from various civilian and military installations. Test labs & manufacturers emulate those radar emissions in a very controlled manner to ensure safe automotive operaton and immunity from these signals (similar in aircraft).
