A Capacitively Coupled Pin Injection Method - An Alternative Immunity Test to BCI
24 Sep 2021
For EMC testing in the automotive, military and aerospace sectors, a Bulk Current Injection (BCI) test is widely used as an immunity test method.
This test requires a high-power amplifier (often at least 80 Watt unsaturated output power), together with a BCI injection probe, to achieve a reasonably high interference level on the device under test (DUT)
This blog describes an alternative immunity test method.

EMC Standards is a world-leading resource for all things EMC and EMI related. Our website is packed full of both free and paid-for content, including:
- Online quiz
- Training quiz
- And much more!
Electromagnetic Engineering (EMgineering) is the basis for proven good design practices for signal integrity (SI), power integrity (PI), and the control of EMI emissions and immunity (EMC).
Our aim is to help people learn how to more quickly and cost-effectively design and manufacture electronic equipment (products, systems, installations, etc.) to meet functional (i.e. SI/PI) specifications and conform to EMC standards, directives and other requirements.
Such equipment should benefit from reduced warranty costs and financial risks, whilst improving uptime, competitiveness and profitability.
We also cover basic good electrical safety engineering; and the Risk Management of Electromagnetic Disturbances / EMI, whether for Functional Safety or other types of risk.Join EMC standards TODAY!
