It is very common for people doing simulations to make a measurement of a similar set up to validate the simulation. This is a reasonable precaution since modern simulation tools will give a very accurate answer to whatever question it is asked.
Modeling and simulation is a complex topic, usually left to experts of the EMC field as the amount of knowledge and understanding that goes into creating a model can be tremendous.
This article will discuss one of the most prolific connectors in the electrical communication field, the RJ45 connector. Most LAN cables use these connectors, so this connector touches most of our lives every day.
This article is an update on the status of the ANSI-ASC C63® Committee on EMC (the C63 Committee).
A million volts and 25 thousand amps are generated during a typical lightning strike. The phenomenology of nature’s oldest EMI Beast is quite fascinating, notably the physics that govern the discharge as it approaches the ground.
Discover the eye diagram, a very useful visual tool to analyze the quality of your connections in digital and high frequency applications.
Probably the single most frequently occurring and most misunderstood issue in electronic product safety is electrically-caused fire. I thought I would review fire processes in plastics materials (the most common flammable construction material in electronic products).
This month in our series exploring the latest industry insight on effective product safety label design and symbol usage, we’ll focus on the United States Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) approval of symbol-only safety labels.
