How to design cost-effective EMC filtering for electrical/electronic equipment
14 May 2018
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) specialistEMC 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.

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!
