Signal Integrity and EMC

Signal integrity is something that most electronic designers increasingly realise they need to control, as clock speeds increase, whereas EMC is something they often see as a mere regulatory burden. This article will show that signal integrity is a subset of EMC.

Understanding this concept helps to understand why it is that taking proper account
of EMC from the start of a project helps improve time-to-market by reducing the
number of iterations of hardware and software (when compared with the usual
design practices). This would be true even if EMC compliance was not required.
