The automotive industry is constantly advancing by integrating new technology in their products. The authorities are introducing more and more regulations to ensure the safety of new automobiles placed on the market.
One of the most important aspects of these regulations is to gurantee electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). This is due to the fact that there has been a considerable increase in the number of electrical and electronic components installed in motor vehicles. Such components control not only the information and entertainment devices, but also safety related functions.
The manufacturers need to make sure that the vehicles and their electrical/electronic subassemblies fulfill the EMC requirements. Nemko can be your reliable partner in ensuring that your product meets the requirements before being placed on the market.
