EMI/EMC in Military Systems

14julAll DayEMI/EMC in Military Systems(All Day: Tuesday)(GMT-04:00) Event Type Seminars & Training

Event Details

Systems EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) involves the control of EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) at the systems, facility, and platform levels (e.g. outside the box.) This three-day course provides a comprehensive treatment of EMI/EMC problems in military systems. These include both the box level requirements of MIL-STD-461 and the systems level requirements of MIL-STD-464. The emphasis is on prevention through good EMI/EMC design techniques – grounding, shielding, cable management, and power interface design. Troubleshooting techniques are also addressed in an addendum. Please note – this class does NOT address circuit boards or specific test issues. Each student will receive a copy of the EDN Magazine Designer’s Guide to EMC by Daryl Gerke and William Kimmel, along with a complete set of lecture notes.

Thinking about EMC training? The payback is there — just one extra trip to the test lab can cost you $10-20K in test and engineering time! Not to mention the additional cost of being late to market, or the cost of fixing EMI problems in the field.

What you will learn:

  • How to identify, prevent, and fix common EMI/EMC problems in military systems
  • Simple models and “rules of thumb” and to help you arrive at quick design decisions (NO heavy math).
  • EMI/EMC troubleshooting tips and techniques.
  • Design impact (by requirement) of military EMC specifications (MIL-STD-461 and MIL-STD-464)
  • EMI/EMC documentation requirements (Control Plans, Test Plans, and Test Reports)
