Keysight App-Note :: Get It Right Every Time with Pre-Compliance Testing
Pre-compliance testing is important because it is a low-risk, cost-ef fective method to ensure your device under test (DUT) will pass final compliance testing. Waiting until the end of the product development cycle for compliance testing is risky, so if you implement pre-compliance testing during development, it will help minimize surprises. For example, by checking your designs for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), you can help your device pass compliance testing on the first try. If your device fails compliance testing, a simple design tweak might fix the issue, so the only added cost is more time in the compliance lab. However, this best-case scenario rarely happens. Instead, many devices fail compliance testing two or more times, which results in costly rework and a delayed product ship date - something no one wants.
