In dealing with EMC compliance, companies need to mitigate three cost-drivers: EMC testing, increased marginal cost per component due to CE certification, and the involvement of a Competent Body. Most companies leverage one of three compliance alternatives to achieve EMC conformity:
  • Article 10(1) - testing to harmonized standards;
  • Article 10(2) - TCF without testing;
  • Article 10(2) - TCF with testing.
SIMCOM, as project manager, can support a manufacturer in three key functions:
    1. Development of the rationale for the TCF;
    2. Identification and negotiation of the appropriate test measures; and
    3. Arbitration with the most capable and reasonable Competent Body.
SIMCOM can also provide "TCF" tools, which serve as guidance documents for:
    1. Creating the TCF rationale;
    2. Executing the EMC test evaluation; and
    3. Understanding the EMC test plan.
