Product Design for EMC Training Course

Face to face Training3 DaysAdvancedOnsite Seminar
This course will cover design to meet EU and worldwide compliance requirements, as well as other commercial and military standards. Good EMC design gives you a product that is more reliable and better fitted for its environment. The course is structured to achieve the maximum learning potential from a combination of tutorials and demonstrations. It emphasises the underlying physics of interference generation and coupling and how it affects design methods, without resorting to complex mathematics.

This course describes practical EMC engineering techniques for achieving reliable operation of custom-designed equipment, systems, and installations. The techniques are described using the example of industrial equipment, systems, and sites, but they can be used equally effectively for everything that involves connecting electrical or electronic units together with cables to construct systems or installations of any kind, whether fixed or mobile including military applications.

Electronic and mechanical designers and their managers, in all industry areas, including telecommunications, industrial, radiocommunications, military, medical and healthcare, hotels and restaurants, information technology (IT), automotive, infrastructure, extraction and refining, entertainment, railway, marine, aerospace, science facilities.

  • 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.
Day 1:

  • 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.

Day 2:

  • 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.

Day 3:

  • Filtering and suppression: filter configuration and layout, common-mode and differential-mode filters, component imperfections, special components, ferrites, I/O filtering and isolation, balance, connector pins, mains filters and layout, transient suppressors, contact suppression.
  • Power switching circuits: emissions from switching circuits, coupling paths, transformer construction, magnetic radiation, differential noise, output noise, snubbers, 20 MHz emission hump.
  • Digital and analogue circuit design: logic family, clocks, transmission line matching, skew and balance, digital circuit decoupling, capacitors, digital immunity, RF susceptibility, microcontroller watchdog, programming, analog immunity, instability, audio rectification, op-amps, bandwidth, and decoupling.
