Start Here: The Electronic Engineer's Guide to PCB and System Level EMC Design

New to EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) testing? Need to polish up your knowledge? This beginner's guide to EMC gives the concise information you need to identify, prepare for and ultimately pass EMC testing.

In this guide, you'll learn how to find the EMC standards that apply to your product, what the emissions and immunity tests are that you'll need to pass, how to prepare for testing, how to find good EMC test labs, typical pricing and much more.

The beginner's guide to EMC is an in-depth tutorial on all aspects of EMC testing. This guide covers the fundamentals of everything you need to know to be able to navigate, prepare for and pass EMC testing.

Here's what we'll cover in this chapter:
  • Learn what electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing is
  • Discover the poor first time pass rate average
  • The 5 reasons manufacturers care about EMC testing
  • The history and future of EMC testing

Read on below!

5 Reasons To Care About EMC Testing

The Future of EMC Testing

There are a few trends that are emerging in the field of EMC:

  • Standardization of Rules

There is a concerted effort to standardize EMC testing requirements across the world, led primarily by the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission). The IEC generate standards that can be transposed by countries into their local standards and in theory this standardizes the EMC requirements across all of the regions that adopt IEC standards. In the UK for instance, 85% of IEC standards are transposed to UK standards.

  • Expansion of test requirements
