Transform electromagnetic waves and their constraints into added value for our customers.
NEXIO is also an Electromagnetism Design Office with several EMC and RADIO test laboratories based in Toulouse, Grenoble and Paris.
Operated by experienced consultants in the framework of punctual (daily) or integrated services, NEXIO laboratories allow to answer quickly to questions concerning :
- Understanding and characterization of EM phenomena
- Development and integration of RF functionalities
- Application of the 5 golden rules of EMC in design
- Anticipation of constraints and risks
- EMC and RADIO evaluation, development and pre-qualification
- Investigation and compliance
- CE marking and support for export markings (FCC,…)
When the missions entrusted involve support up to certification, NEXIO can count on privileged partnerships with a large number of notified laboratories in the automotive, aeronautics, space, military, railway, medical, industrial, IT, multimedia & telecom sectors,…

Mesures normatives :
essais réalisés dans des conditions proches des conditions de certification mais dans des configurations optimisées.
Performance measurements, tuning and functional optimization :
caged and uncaged measurements to accompany electronic developments. In particular for those involving wireless links (validating antenna design, integrating and/or adjusting an RF circuit, characterizing performances, ...).
