EMC Seminar

This seminar will consist of four sessions. The first session will explain how elec-tromagnetic 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 ap-proach for designing power distribution networks on PCBs. From input power connection to the IC die, the simple rules discussed can be used to reduce power-supply noise and improve EMC. The final session will be on PCB design to sur-vive transients. This session will cover some definitions of ESD and EOS while explaining the important differences in the energy involved and the resulting dam-age 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!
