Why is SAR Testing Important?

Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) testing measures the amount of Radio Frequency (RF) energy absorbed by biological tissue when using a wireless device over a period of time. It allows you to demonstrate that your product complies with international established RF exposure SAR limits. UL tests to all current SAR standards at any and every stage of product development, confirming compliance to the legal and market human RF exposure requirements in each of your target markets.
