The Relationship Between EMI/EMC and ESD

The 2020 EOS/ESD Symposium featured a new EMC Special Session, organized in cooperation between the EMC Society and EOS/ESD Association. This Special Session was planned to emphasize the relationship between EMI/EMC and ESD.

Banana Skins – May 2021 (#330-332)

Chris van Rossman of Corvallis Oregon turned on his do-everything combo TV and got a big surprise—the police, the Civil Air Patrol, and the County Search and Rescue Officers knocked on his door.

RF & EMC Formulas and Charts Poster

This poster by AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation is a great resource to have in your lab or at your desk for a handy and quick reference for the EMC professional. This poster covers the basics such as frequency-to-wavelengths and Ohms law relationships, Linear to Log conversions, as well as EMC-targeted content such as radiated field strength and antenna factor calculations.

Requirements of Antennas for EMC Testing

Antennas used for EMC testing possess several characteristics which make them ideal for use in a fast-paced, production-like EMC test environment. This article will briefly describe what these characteristics are, starting with the most important parameter – antenna factor.

EMC Design Techniques for Electric Vehicle Powertrain Modules

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.

EMC Resonance Part I: Non-Ideal Passive Components

The fundamental circuit background is presented and illustrated by the resonance phenomenon in the non-ideal models of passive circuit components: capacitors, ferrite beads, resistors, and inductors.
