Microphones are important transducers in the world of acoustics. To get meaningful data when testing products, metrics such as Sound Power are used. ISO standards provide guidelines to assure repeatability of this measurement. Within the videos section, Dr. Chad Walber discusses how to use Sound Power Measurement techniques for your product testing.
