Suppressing emissions by using data scrambling and spread‐spectrum hardware design techniques
EMC engineering is often assumed to be concerned with mitigating EMI by using techniques such asfiltering, shielding, galvanic isolation, ‘grounding’ (so‐called, although it has nothing to do with the soil, orwith the green/yellow striped wire in the mains power cord), surge and transient suppressors, etc. But costeffectiveEMC engineering is so much more than this!

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!
