Vehicle test organisation upgrades EMC facility

A new liquid cooled power amplifier at HORIBA MIRA will provide the EMC testing team with new capabilities including cybersecurity testing.

HORIBA MIRA has made a further investment to its world-class Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) facility.

This investment, a state of the art Liquid Cooled Power Amplifier from Amplifier Research which is already up and running, provides readily available radio frequency (RF) power for RF susceptibility testing, antenna and component testing. Amplifier Research has supplied HORIBA MIRA with its amplifier needs since 1987 and this is the first of its type in Europe.

The 12.5kW Liquid Cooled Power Amplifier enables HORIBA MIRA to test vehicles from the automotive and defence sectors at a higher radio frequency field in radiated immunity testing as well as provide greater capabilities in engineering solutions and consultancy.

Testing at this higher level is essential as vehicles are subjected to increasing levels of radio frequency interference both from within the vehicle and externally which create greater requirements for cybersecurity and resilience testing.

Mark Emery, EMC Technical Manager at HORIBA MIRA commented “Our growth strategy is to continuously evolve our capability so that we can serve the demands of our customers within the Cyber and RF Resilience service sectors, in both the automotive and defence sectors, and this increase of power amplification is paramount in achieving the desired radiated field levels. HORIBA MIRA has worked successfully with Amplifier Research for nearly 30 years and we look forward to working with Amplifier Research on our future amplifier strategies in the coming years.”

Mark Reeve, Managing Director for AR UK Ltd added, “We are extremely proud to be one of HORIBA MIRA’s strategic partners and the principle supplier of the power amplifiers in their test facilities. The high mismatch tolerance and robust design of the AR amplifiers make them a perfect choice for even the most demanding of applications. We look forward to working with HORIBA MIRA in the future as they continue to develop and expand their capabilities”.
