Pre-compliance SAR testing

What is pre-compliance SAR testing?

SAR measurement explains how much radio frequency (RF) energy is absorbed to the user’s head or body. It is important to measure the SAR level of the product to verify that the product is safe to use. Pre-compliance SAR testing means SAR testing during the product development phase. Pre-compliance SAR test gives an indication if the product will pass the mandatory SAR test when the product is otherwise ready.

Why testing during a product development is important?

SAR testing during the product development phase helps finding possible issues. More importantly, it gives an indication of the SAR level for the product. When the problems are found in an early phase, the product design can be developed towards the right direction right from the beginning. It can save some serious cost from the future.

Even though the testing creates some costs during the product development phase, resolving the observed SAR issues in an early phase ensures more predictable certification costs and early access to the market.
