We have studied on the interference test method from IEEE802.11b to IEEE802.11g as an interference source with wide band spectrum by using the opened PW cell, and it is clear that the throughput of IEEE802.11g for only IEEE802.11b Ch.4 signal wave as the interference wave, whose frequency spectrum is almost not overlapping with IEEE802.11g, is almost not interfered by IEEE802.11b, but the throughputs for all other channels from Ch.5 to Ch.8 as the interference wave are interfered and decrease to below 2 Mbps. By comparing with conventional radiated RF electromagnetic field immunity test specified by IEC 61000-4-3, it is clear that the conventional immunity test cannot simulate the interference phenomena from IEEE802.11b to IEEE802.11g. Next, we tried to perform the interference test of the Bluetooth against the wireless LAN IEEE 802.11b as a disturbance source. As a result, it is revealed that the throughput of Bluetooth decreases according to increasing the interference wave level, and communication between EUT (slave) and the master of Bluetooth is interrupted for the interference wave corresponding to Ch.7 (244210 MHz). However, in the conventional immunity test specified by IEC 61000-4-3, the throughput of the Bluetooth does not affect for the all disturbance waves corresponding to the center frequency of bandwidth on the cannel of IEEE802.11b. Therefore, it is needed for the wireless LAN and the Bluetooth to develop new radiated immunity test method, which has the disturbance wave with wide bandwidth.
