There’s an awful lot of myth, misunderstanding, and just plain rubbish talked about electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC).
However, the rapid and unrelenting pace of development in electrical and electronic technologies since the 1950s has brought us to the point where achieving EMC (that is, ensuring freedom fromsignificant EMI problems) is needed for the reliable operation of most products, applications, systems and networks.
As these developments continue into the foreseeable future, achieving EMC will soon become very important indeed for everything, up to the largest networks on the planet. Also, due to the rapid growth in smart/autonomous technologies (e.g. in automobiles, trains, mining, surgery, robotics,etc.), avoiding EMI over the complete lifecycle will soon become important for human safety.

EMC Standards is a world-leading resource for all things EMC and EMI related. Our website is packed full of both free and paid-for content, including:
- Online quiz
- Training quiz
- And much more!
Electromagnetic Engineering (EMgineering) is the basis for proven good design practices for signal integrity (SI), power integrity (PI), and the control of EMI emissions and immunity (EMC).
Our aim is to help people learn how to more quickly and cost-effectively design and manufacture electronic equipment (products, systems, installations, etc.) to meet functional (i.e. SI/PI) specifications and conform to EMC standards, directives and other requirements.
Such equipment should benefit from reduced warranty costs and financial risks, whilst improving uptime, competitiveness and profitability.
We also cover basic good electrical safety engineering; and the Risk Management of Electromagnetic Disturbances / EMI, whether for Functional Safety or other types of risk.Join EMC standards TODAY!
