This article briefly describes the most important pre-layout elements to look for when selecting a SI/PI software simulation package.
CISPR Publications 24 and 35 allow radiated and conducted immunity tests to be performed using I% or 4% steps. This article looks at measured radiated immunity test data to determine the typical shapes of radiated susceptibilities for multimedia equipment. The authors consider what those shapes tell us about the validity of the 4% step method.
This article describes three troubleshooting methodologies doctors use to diagnose (troubleshoot) medical problems. These same techniques have proven useful in my own EMC consulting practice.
This article describes the activities of the C63 Committee on EMC over the last two years. It summarizes how the Committee has been remotely meeting and reports on the progress the Committee has made on its active EMC standards.
