Banana Skins – October 2022 (#397-403)

During the testing of one aircraft, we suffered a very marked and complete electrical failure of the aircraft (much to the alarm of both the test engineers and the cockpit crew) which turned out to be due to the EUT we were testing.

Signal Integrity Versus EMC

This article addresses two very common questions involving two interrelated and specialized sub-fields within the realm of compliance engineering.

EMC Management in Charging Applications

Implementing a process of EMC compliance for a specific project is much more than simply ensuring that the design engineers follow a long list of “do’s and don’ts” in the form of EMC design rules. Following this process will reap benefits when EMC performance is evaluated at the end of the design process.

Getting the Best EMC from Shielded Cables Up to 2.8 GHz, Part 1

Part 1 of this two-part article explores some basic rules for terminating cable shields. Part 2 of the article will appear in our October 2022 issue and will summarize the results of recent testing conducted by the author on the shielding effectiveness of screened cables up to 2.8 GHz

Eye Diagram

This article addresses the impact of driver, HDMI cable, and receiver on signal quality using data eye, based on the following criteria: data eye opening, data mask violation, and data jitter.

Eye Diagram

This is the first of two articles devoted to an eye diagram. In this article, the fundamental definitions and concepts are presented.
