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.

EMC Standards is a world-leading resource for all things EMC and EMI related. Our website is packed full of both free and paid-for content, including:
- Online quiz
- Training quiz
- And much more!
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!
