2 - EMC in Interconnections - Updated for Jan 2021 image #1

Good Electromagnetic (EM) Engineering is cost-effective SI, PI and EMC engineering, which is well-proven to save time & money in all lifecycle stages,
helping to increase profits & reduce financial risks.

This Module contains many EM Engineering guidelines that should also be used as an initial design checklist, any that can’t or won’t be followed identify a project risk!

Module is 111 slides over 56 pages


2.1 Accidental antenna behaviour of all conductors
2.2 Use fibre optics or alternatives, instead of conductors
2.3 The “RF Reference”
2.4 Cable classification and EM Zoning (segregation)
2.5 Good practices for both shielded and unshielded interconnections:  controlling DM & CM return paths
2.6 Shielding techniques for cables
2.7 Terminating cable shields
2.8 Interconnecting shielded enclosures
2.9 ‘Ground loops’
2.10 Transmission-line interconnections
2.11 Some useful references
For safety requirements - see our courses on designing for safety compliance.
For interconnections in PCBs (traces) - See Modules 6A and 10A on PCBs
