Choosing the right filter for an application is considered by many design and electrical engineers to be something of a dark art. Fortunately, help is at hand – a new whitepaper from electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) specialist EMC Standards. The whitepaper provides design engineers with a guide to designing the right filters for their products, and is available for download in the member’s area of the EMC Standards website.

The whitepaper, by global EMC specialist Keith Armstrong, offers guidance on choosing the correct specifications and style of a filter. Armstrong states that the guidance is akin to taking “anti-Murphy” precautions — referring to the adage that "anything that can go wrong will go wrong". The advice aims to pre-empt Murphy’s Law from affecting filters, through better specification in the design process.
