ESD as an EMI Design Problem

Ask a manufacturing engineer how to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) problems, and you will hear about ionizers, conductive floors, smocks, wrist straps, and more.

EMC System Design: A Systematic Methodology

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.

To Avoid Problems, Work as Slow as Possible

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.

Modernizing the RJ45 Jack and Plug

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.

Designing for Better Health Tech

Designing technology for healthcare is tricky work, because although creativity plays an important role, in medical settings the most important mantra is always “first, do no harm.” Too often, this mindset resu... Read More...
