Introduction:

EMI/EMC in Systems and Facilities Training Course with Hands-on Exercises (Online, Onsite and Classroom Live)

Systems EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) involves the control of EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) at the systems, facility, and platform levels (e.g. outside the box.) This two-day EMI/EMC in Systems & Facilities Training course provides a comprehensive treatment of EMI/EMC problems in electronic systems. These include industrial controls, semiconductor tools, medical systems, test systems, and more.

The emphasis is on prevention through good EMI/EMC design techniques – grounding, shielding, cable management, and power interface design. Please note – this EMI/EMC in Systems & Facilities Training class does NOT address circuit boards issues. Also, military designers may prefer our class on EMI/EMC in Military Systems. Each student will receive a copy of the EDN Magazine Designer’s Guide to EMC by Daryl Gerke and William Kimmel, along with a complete set of lecture notes.

Duration: 3 days
