EMC Design for Compliance: Immunity

Design circuit boards and products that pass continuous and transient immunity testing


Created by Andy Eadie


What You'll Learn:

  • Circuit board layout techniques to increase immunity to phenomena
  • How to specify and apply suppression components at the circuit board level
  • System level mitigation techniques for all EMC tests
  • How to prepare a test plan including standards, monitoring methods,and pass/fail criteria
  • The 12 keys to protecting your device at the external, internal, and firmware levels
  • How to minimize self-interference issues
  • How to save money on pre-compliance testing in your own office
  • Troubleshooting techniques for each of the 7 immunity tests, and equipment options to suit your budget
  • How to get the most out of your RF transmitter by minimizing interference from other parts of your circuit (RF Desense)
  • 12 mitigation methods to avoid radiated immunity problems
