New EMC / EMI Online Design For Compliance (Emissions) Training Course

Andy Eadie EMC Design Tips Leave a Comment

If you haven’t already heard, I’m excited to touch base to let you know that we’re launching a new online EMC design for compliance course, beginning September 8th.

It’s a really in depth course covering design for radiated and conducted emissions compliance, aimed at design and layout engineers as well as engineering managers and compliance engineers.

Course Overview

Just like our EMC design eBook, this course is highly focused on the practical aspects of EMC design.

Through a series of seminars, case studies, demonstrations and screen video captures of layout examples, we’ll walk through not only the theoretical basis of EMC, but also the application of that theory to real world design solutions.

Here’s a snapshot of just some of the 68 modules covered in the course:

  • Radiated & conducted emissions coupling mechanisms
  • Return paths
  • Common mode vs. differential mode
  • Filtering signals and cabling
  • Signal integrity
  • Bypassing & de-coupling capacitor selection and placement
  • PCB level ground implementation
  • How to control conducted emissions
  • EMC experiments using specially designed EMC demonstration kits (you can purchase a set too if you’d like to join in at your own office

If you want a robust overview of design for radiated and conducted emissions compliance for yourself or any of your team members, your going to want to enroll in this course.

What We Learned From The Survey

In response to the many companies who provided feedback in the recent survey, we decided to add some more topics including (but not limited) to:

  • Ethernet shielding
  • Enclosure openings and materials
  • Resonances
  • Connector selection
  • Simulation tools
  • High current, high voltage EMC considerations (for power and motor applications)
  • EMI cost reduction and prioritizing EMI design considerations

Who The Heck Are EMC FastPass Anyway?

The course will be narrated and presented by myself, but I’m receiving a lot of support from several subject matter experts (SMEs). Where my knowledge has gaps, I’ve hired some great folks to help me out to produce professional quality training materials.

For anyone who isn’t familiar with my background, I was a hardware design engineer for 10 years before founding an independent EMC test lab back in 2010. I’ve been heavily involved with EMC design and troubleshooting as well as test & measurement for both intentional and unintentional radiators. My goal is to use those skill sets to produce concise online training materials and tools that help engineers to reduce the number of products that fail EMC testing first time from 50% to 0%.

On the team we have a professor of EMC, with a specialization in switch mode power supplies. We also have an author of a book on signal integrity. In addition, we have EMC specialists on the team who are practicing design engineers. They cover specialist knowledge areas such as EMC for power electronics and simulation tools.

Course Enrollment

If you want to join in on the action and enroll in this course, there are a couple of ways to register.

1. Go to the course listing page and click the ‘Take This Course’ button in the sidebar. Update the quantity of enrollments to reserve enough seats for yourself and your colleagues (discounts apply for multiple enrollments). The website accepts all major credit cards.

2, Email [email protected] to request an official quote or invoice.

Again, there are limited seats available for this course due to the required product support, so make sure to book your spaces ASAP.

Any questions or concerns? Just shoot me an email.
