- Learn the basic mechanisms of EMC.
- Understand EU, UK, and other compliance requirements.
- Identify relevant EMC standards and preparation for the test.
- Understand EMC design principles for; PCB level, cables, and connectors, shielding, filtering and suppression, power switching, digital and analogue circuits.
- Introduction to Electromagnetic Compatibility: Definition of EMC, EMC in the product cycle and reliability aspects, nature of the interference, coupling mechanisms, electromagnetic fields, differential, and common mode cable coupling.
- Directives, Regulations, and Standards: UKCA marking and regulations, EMC directive 2014/30/EU and CE marking for apparatus, other EMC-related directives and regulations, electromagnetic resilience and safety requirements, test standards, testing, and documentation.
- PCB layout, coupling, and grounding: track impedance, the proximity of return path, gridded and ground plane layouts, current flow in a ground plane, the effect of discontinuities, optimum ground and power plane configurations, layer stack-up and edge effects, interface layout, and grounding, grounding hardware, heatsinks, and thermal issues.
- Cables and connectors: unscreened cables: twisted pair, ribbon, common versus differential mode, transmission lines, cable screen function, transfer impedance, screen termination, the effect of the connector.
- Shielding: theory of reflection and absorption, the effect of apertures and seams, hatches and doors, enclosure resonance, conductive gaskets, conductive coatings and shielded windows, partitioning shielded enclosures, bonding.
