Subject: microphonics interference
I have received a request to do reliability testing of microphonics' effect on microwave devices. From a website I found, someone claimed that there was no standard on how to test the microphonics sensitivity. Screwdriver tapping, simulated hail, etc. are few examples people have used. Does anyone know anything on how to perform this test correctly and reliably? This test is to simulate the rain drops and hail hitting an outdoor device, which will create sound to interfere microwave device performance. Thanks.
