Keysight Technologies has opened a new Regulatory Test Laboratory in Penang, Malaysia.

It will deliver accredited electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing services for manufacturers of electronic devices and mission-critical industries across wireless communications, IIoT, automotive, healthcare and medical applications.

The Penang facility offers expertise, knowledge, efficiency, capacity and exceptional customer service including calibration and testing services.

Keysight currently has similar testing facilities in California in the United States and in Boeblingen, Germany.

"As the world becomes more electronically connected, testing becomes more complex. The dramatic number of potential emitters of electromagnetic interference (EMI) in autonomous cars, electric vehicles, 5G and IoT devices, as well as medical equipment require new tests to meet evolving standards," stated Niels Faché (pictured), vice president of Service Portfolio, Global Services at Keysight. "Keysight's compliance and testing laboratories around the world and now in Asia, offer expertise and emerging technologies that can help our customers validate designs and accelerate time to production."

Located in Malaysia's high-tech industry centre, Keysight's Penang facility offers the following:

  • Engineers and technicians who can review EMC test plans, testing and standard operating procedures, to help ensure that testing is performed correctly the first time.
  • Tailored testing solutions to help customers meet deadlines with state-of-the-art software automation that enhances process efficiency, analyses results and reduces testing cycles, resulting in reduced test costs.
  • Proven technologies that help ensure equipment conforms to regulations and standards with pre-compliance/compliance testing and certifications.
  • State-of-the-art testing systems including a 10-meter semi-anechoic chamber, which provides accurate measurements.

"Keysight is committed to helping customers with our comprehensive solutions, even during difficult times," said Gooi Soon Chai, president of Keysight's electronic industrial solutions group. "Keysight recognises that COVID-19 is creating a variety of challenges for existing and new manufacturing customers, and believe that this facility, and the myriad of services it can provide, will support these customers through even the most demanding situations."
