TILE!™ EMC Software and Boonton Power Sensor Delight Commercial EMC Test Lab

CEDAR PARK, Texas – September 14, 2023 – When a leading provider of EMC test services wanted to incorporate Boonton power sensors into their commercial test labs to take advantage of their measurement speed, accuracy, and cost-effective price point, they turned to the experts at ETS-Lindgren, the provider of the lab’s Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Test Automation Software. 


ETS-Lindgren’s TILE! – Totally Integrated Laboratory Environment – quickly saved the day.  Due to its instrumentation-agnostic profile, TILE! can be modified to accommodate most instrumentation brands for creating and performing EMC tests.  TILE! is available with a library of profiles designed for testing to international test regulations for radiated emissions and immunity (RE, RI) as well as conducted emissions and immunity (CE, CI). 


ETS-Lindgren’s software engineers collaborated with Boonton’s application engineers to create a new driver for the Boonton RTP4106 Power Sensor.  “It was gratifying that lab management specifically asked for the RTP4106 for their test laboratory use,” said Walt Strickler, Boonton VP Product Development and Product Management.  “A combination of the TILE! flexible platform and our easy-to-integrate sensor API made it possible for ETS-Lindgren to provide a driver quickly, which allowed lab personnel to use TILE! with the RTP4106 and save significant test time.”


Boonton’s RTP4000 series of Real-Time True Average Power Sensors includes Model RTP4106, an ideal sensor for EMC measurements with 4 kHz to 6 GHz frequency coverage.  Its ultra-high test throughput enables 100,000 measurements per second and the ability to make measurements over a virtually unlimited time span for long-term measurement data collection. 


With Real-Time Power Processing™ technology, there are virtually no gaps in signal acquisition and zero measurement latency.  Other notable features of Model RTP4106 include true average measurements with essentially no modulation bandwidth limitations; pulse, average, CW, and modulation modes; a -60 dBm to +20 dBm dynamic range; and synchronized multi-channel measurements.  “We were excited to collaborate with Boonton to integrate their RTP Power Sensor with our TILE! Software for automated EMC measurements,” said Michael Christopher, Director, Software Engineering, with ETS-Lindgren.  “Boonton is well known for the quality of their power sensors; we were honored to partner with such a prestigious, conscientious manufacturer.  They do not cut corners and they share our commitment to providing top-notch customer service.”


ETS-Lindgren also integrated Boonton’s PMX40 RF Power Meter into TILE!  As a USB-connected power sensor, the RTP4106 can be used alone or used with the PMX40, which provides a bench-top power meter experience for the user.  Boonton’s new drivers now join the library of more than 1,600 drivers available with TILE!
