EMC Pre-compliance Testing

The EMC Center at GVSU offers the following services to local industry:


The EMC Center is located at 609 Watson Street in Grand Rapids,
just a few blocks west of GVSU's engineering building. This
4000-square-foot facility includes a seminar room and the EMC
pre-compliance lab.



  • Two screen rooms, one for conducted emissions, and another
    for conducted immunity testing
  • GTEM cell for radiated immunity and emissions testing
  • PCB emissions scanner
  • Transient measurement equipment
  • Several EMC antennas
  • Numerous measurement and debugging tools.

Future Additions

  • 12'x16'x10'6" semianechoic chamber for radiated emissions,
  • 10'x9'x8'6" reverberation chamber for radiated immunity.

EMC Design Support

In addition to the pre-compliance testing the EMC Center also offers:

  • Design reviews for schematic and PCB layout.
  • Diagnostic support.
  • EMC test plan development.
