This 4 day Design for Electromagnetic Compatibility course provides a good outline of the basics of EM theory and common EMC problems. It covers all aspects of equipment design necessary to ensure a compliant design with a particular emphasis on PCB design and the implications of the various components. The course will include practical demonstrations and workshops.
Due to demand this course has been rerun regularly: on 13 - 16 July 2020, 20 - 23 October 2020, 23 - 26 Mar 2021 and the next rerun is scheduled for 21 - 24 Mar 2022.
On completion of the course, participants will be able to:
1. Understand EM basics – susceptibility and emissions
2. Understand common EMC pitfalls in PCB design
3. Develop a fundamental understanding of PCB current flows
Who is the course for?
The course introduces EMC and methods to both the design engineer and the manager. It will provide a good working knowledge of EMC so that the engineer can understand the EMC design features necessary to minimise the cost of meeting the EMC Directives.
