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.
The rear-screen heater in my BMW 3-Series causes so much interference when switched on that it’s impossible to listen to the car radio.
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.
This article presents a concept of a wave together with the wave equations and their solutions.
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.
Resonance phenomenon is explained using several common decoupling capacitor configurations.
We are all aware of TVs and radios being affected by vacuum cleaners, food mixers, mobile phones, and the like...
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.
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.
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.
