This article presents the fundamentals and application of capacitors. What is a capacitor, and how do we select them? Techniques of selecting capacitors and things to consider when using capacitors are highlighted. Both practical examples and simulation are used to demonstrate the key points.
This article briefly describes why it's important to consider what RF suppression/filtering techniques will be applied to your product as early in the design process as possible.
Secure facility designs often comingle ICS/ICD-705 and NSA 94-106 design requirements, creating project confusion with significant design and cost implications. This article focuses on bringing some clarity to the differences between ICS/ICD-705 design guidance and NSA 94-106 performance requirements. The related secure facility design and construction process is also reviewed.
This article presents the EMC design techniques for electric vehicle powertrain modules. High voltage EMC regulations for powertrain modules are reviewed first to help understand associated design challenges. The design techniques are then demonstrated in detail to help engineers design a module that will pass the EMC requirements in the test chamber.
OEMs are moving toward the digitalization of the design and integration of electrical and electronic systems in aerospace applications. This approach to design development may help aerospace OEMs avoid possible calamities in the future.
This article highlights key concepts to designing electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection circuits for radio frequency (RF) and millimeter wave applications. Needed RF concepts are discussed and some popular protection schemes are illustrated.
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) protection of Integrated Circuits (ICs) requires seamless discharge paths and voltage clamping along the course of the discharge, between any pins combinations on the IC.
This article describes a practical approach to the design and build of a sleeve dipole antenna mandated by a custom EMC standard.
This article examines the different parts of capacitive touch design and provides a checklist of what to look for when designing a product.
This article describes the MOV circuit design sequence for the AC mains port overvoltage protection of pluggable type A equipment.
