Techniques and Measures to Manage Functional Safety and Other Risks
with Regard to Electromagnetic Disturbances
Many near-future applications necessary for the safety and quality of human life, will require a huge expansion in high performance, high-power computing; switching power conversion; wireless datacommunications, and wireless power transfer.
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) is often ignored at present but will be crucial for the arrival of this future world. Where errors, malfunctions or failures in electronic systems can increase safety or other risks, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing cannot be sufficient for proving that risks are low enough.
This paper briefly introduces newly-developed techniques and measures which, when added to traditional EMC testing, can prove that risks due to EMI are adequately low.

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!
