LED market growth to rebound

Despite the global market for light emitting diodes (LED) dropping 8% in 2016, a new article from Electronics Sourcing has revealed that robust demand will drive the industry, where revenue will total $17.8 billion by 2021. The research, conducted by IC Insights, has found that price erosion was the biggest contributor to the market falling for the first time in 15 years.

EN55035:2017 Multimedia Immunity standard added to our UKAS scope

EN55035:2017, the long-awaited replacement for EN55024, EN55103-2 and EN55020, was released in the Official Journal ( OJ) last month.

Like EN55032, it is function-based and written around that rather than being product specific. We have had the Korean version, KN35, on our UKAS schedule since January 2016. Korea adopted the 2015 version of CISPR35. Having had nearly two years’ experience of KN35 testing, this has allowed us to quickly gain accreditation for the latest requirement for EN55035 and add it to our UKAS scope.

6GHz Radiated Immunity testing on our UKAS scope now

For several years now the frequency limit has been set at 2.7GHz for many product specs. Recent developments in radio specs and the prevalence of 5.4GHz WiFi has resulted in product specific standards, and the new EN55035 Multi-Media Equipment standard requiring this to be increased to 6GHz. Medical, Railway, Radio and the new Generics all now have requirements to 6GHz.

With an investment in new amplifiers, antennas and signal generators, Hursley EMC has gained UKAS accreditation for this new requirement.

Contact us for a quote if your product specs need upgrading to meet the new requirements.
