The WECAD lab provides a user friendly, laptop-based interface that utilizes TILE software to interact with equipment inside and outside the chamber (e.g., turntable, cameras, signal generator, spectrum analyzer, and others). Testing schemes/parameters can easily be altered within the software to accommodate individual needs. Testing summary reports are provided in electronic and hard-copy format, complete with easy-to-read graphs, test procedures, and a list of test equipment. Raw data is available upon request.

If compliance problems are identified during testing, WECAD lab researchers will troubleshoot the design, including debugging and assistance with shielding, filtering, and grounding techniques. Confidentiality and security for customer materials and prototype components are of the utmost importance to our team. Testing facilities include monitored offices and storage space adjacent to the lab. We encourage you to visit WECAD to learn more about our facilities, equipment, facilities, and researchers.
