Recast versions of the EU’s EMC and Low Voltage Directives are now in effect while the entirely new Radio Equipment Directive can also apply (it is being phased in). This article considers the requirements of each of the Directives, discussing similarities and differences between the laws.
The purpose of this article is to provide an order in the design of the electronic system such that EMC considerations can be evaluated throughout the design effort, producing an electromagnetically compatible system at a minimal cost.
This article covers some of the aspects of power cords intended for use in information technology equipment (ITE) and consumer products applications.
Come next summer, there’s a new song playing in Europe and if you want to tune in your radio products, you’ll have to go RED. June 12, 2017 is the magic date. (Reader caution: If you’re just getting into this topic, be ready for a barrage of acronyms...)
The best solution to fire - any fire - is to prevent fire in the first place.
You can minimize your EMI/EMC and SI/PI problems by working as slow as possible. This is very well known advice from many experts, books, and seminars: you can minimize or solve electromagnetic interference (emissions/susceptibility) and signal or power integrity problems working as slow as possible.
