Abstract

We present an exploration of the time parameters observed in measurements performed at 13 residential sites from June 2020 through September 2021. This discussion is undertaken from the perspective of application to electromagnetic immunity testing for medical devices and household electronics, and in particular the selection of timing parameters for emulating household environments. Summary statistics of the data point to parameter values that could make the testing more realistic, in order to improve the resilience of household products as the radio spectrum becomes more active. The data further suggest that the radio disturbance excitation in these tests should synthesize a random processes to reproduce realistic spectrum occupancy, instead of simple periodic waveforms that are prescribed today.
