THE IEEE ROCK RIVER VALLEY SECTION PRESENTS THE 2017 EMC SEMINAR EM Field-Based Design of Circuit Boards for First Pass EMC Compliance Daniel Beeker Questions? Please contact: Jamal Shafii – Jamalshafii@ieee.org Phone: 608-658-6830 Steve Davidson steve.davidson@ieee.org Phone: 815-218-8249 For more information visit our website: http://sites.ieee.org/rockrivervalley/events/emcseminar/ To Register Now: https://goo.gl/M5DDqH This seminar will consist of four sessions. The first session will explain how electromagnetic fields behave on circuit boards. Material presented will focus on the basic principles and physics of electromagnetic energy. It will be presented in easy to understand language with plenty of diagrams. Attendees will discover how understanding the behavior of EM fields can help to design PCBs that will be more robust and have better electromagnetic compatibility performance. In the second session, techniques to improve EMC performance of circuit boards will be discussed. A new design approach that utilizes an electromagnetic physics-based design methodology to control the field energy in your design will be presented. The third session will focus on a simple EM physics- and geometry-based approach for designing power distribution networks on PCBs. From input power connection to the IC die, the simple rules discussed can be used to reduce powersupply noise and improve EMC. The final session will be on PCB design to survive transients. This session will cover some definitions of ESD and EOS while explaining the important differences in the energy involved and the resulting damage and design to mitigate transients. The session will also review PCB design for improving system robustness. Attendees will have the opportunity to network with EMC and Test Equipment vendors. Past seminars have featured up to 30 exhibitors! With more than 39 years of experience in electronic system design and EMC, Daniel Beeker provides applications support for NXP Automotive customers worldwide. Daniel also supports NXP customers globally with special function development tools and instrumentation (almost all of the “LFxxx” tools on the NXP website).
