This two-day course gives engineering professionals the ability to successfully recognize, solve and avoid challenging EMI problems. Demonstrations using working hardware illustrate concepts such as radiated emissions, high frequency antennas, radiated and conducted immunity and crosstalk in connectors, cables and IC packages. Integrating over 30 years of hands-on troubleshooting experience and the latest EMC research, this class is appropriate for experienced circuit and system design engineers, EMC engineers, as well as those who are new to EMI problem solving.

Proper layout is particularly important in mixed-signal boards (boards with both analog and digital circuits). Minor mistakes in the layout of these boards can make the difference between a reliable product and a product with severe susceptibility problems. Recognizing poor design features early in a product’s development can save a lot of time and expense later on. This course stresses the fundamental concepts and tools that board designers must be familiar with to avoid electromagnetic compatibility and signal integrity problems.

This is an advanced course for engineers who design products that must comply with EMC requirements on the first test pass. The course discusses basic methodologies for reviewing circuit board layouts and schematics to identify and evaluate potential EMC and signal integrity issues. Examples derived from actual circuit board designs are used to illustrate proper and improper layouts in various situations. Implementation and layout strategies for various types of circuits are reviewed including high-speed digital, RF analog, LF analog, power inverters, controllers and mixed-signal designs.
