Fundamentals of EMC Design: Our Products Are Trying To Help Us

Fundamentals of EMC Design: Our Products Are Trying To Help Us image #1

We often design electronic products only to find that when we test them for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), their emissions and/or immunity are not as good as we need them to be.

Usually, at this time, we feel as if we are fighting against the laws of physics to contain the conducted and radiated emissions, or to reduce susceptibility. 

But in fact the laws of physics – Maxwell’s Equations – are causing our design to have the best emissions and immunity that the physical structure allows. We might say that our product is doing the very best it can to reduce its emissions and improve its immunity!
