6a - Essential PCB design techniques for cost-effective SI, PI, EMC in 2021
Provides 6 hours towards CPD
Updated for April 2021
Module 6 A replaces 6
This course explains that the the most cost-effective place to fix EMC, is in the PCB!. Its shows PCB techniques, which if applied correctly provide good signal integrity (SI), power integrity (PI) and EMC...
This is much more cost-effective than ‘fixing’ EMC problems at a higher level of assembly.
Module is 315 slides over 158 pages.
1) Saving time and money
2) Scope and application of these design techniques
3) EM Zoning (i.e. segregation)
4) Interface analysis, filtering, and suppression
5) RFREF 0V(GND) and power (PWR) planes
6) RF-bonding PCB Reference Planes at EMZ boundaries
7) Power supply decoupling
8) Switching power converters (AC/DC, DC/DC, DC/AC)
9) Matched transmission line techniques
10) Layer stacking and trace routing
11) Devices with BGA packages and/or multiple DC rails
12) Some useful references, sources, and webinars

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!
