Test and Measurement for EMC

This presentation describes the basic setups for radiated and conducted emissions, radiated and conducted immunity, and electrostatic discharge (ESD). A representative sample of the commercial EMC regulations will be used to explain the basics of the EMC measurements. Each test and the equipment required to perform it will be discussed to the extent needed to gain the basic understanding of and interpret the test results. Each test will be supported by the examples of the real test data, many of them illustrating the “pass” and “fail” results. The presentation will conclude with the EMC lab tour where live EMC measurements will be performed.

Presenter: Bogdan Adamczyk, PH.D, iN.C.E
