Validation, Verification and Immunity Testing Techniques for EMC for Functional Safety
Safety systems must maintain low risks over their lifetimes. Where electromagnetic interference (EMI) could affect risks, an adequate level of electromagnetic (EM) performance is required. This is known as ‘electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) for Functional Safety’.
It is not practical to prove that systems are safe enough solely by EM testing. In all technical areas (including software) safety requires appropriate design, validation and verification techniques, including testing. This paper briefly describes validation, verification and immunity testing techniques EMC for Functional Safety. Many of these techniques can also help control environmental, financial or security risks in high-reliability, mission-critical or legal metrology systems.

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!
