Learn ‘Design for EMC’

Live Three-day Virtual Training Workshop

November 9-11, 2021

Learn How To Identify, Prevent, and Fix Common EMC Design Problems

This expert-led, live, multi-day virtual training focuses on common interference and signal problems faced by the designers of today’s high speed digital and mixed digital/analog circuits and systems and will teach participants how to identify, prevent, and fix common EMC design problems.

Our goal is to equip electronics design and systems personnel with the necessary information to identify, design, and fix EMC (and many closely related Signal Integrity) design problems. We focus on what’s “inside the box” — components, circuits, circuit boards, power, shielding. Taught in a problem/solution format, using numerous case histories, this seminar has minimal theory – take these classes today and apply them tomorrow.
