Advanced Printed Circuit Board Design for EMC and SI
This two-day class provides a unique blend of theory, applications, and numerous hardware demonstrations to describe effective PCB design strategies to eliminate EMC problems such as radiated and conducted emissions & immunity, and ESD, and to improve low- and high-frequency signal integrity of analog and digital sensors.
The real-time hardware demonstrations use a spectrum analyzer, signal generator, and digital PCBs to illustrate inductance, common-impedance coupling, common-mode current, and ground loops in PCBs, cables, and systems. Specific examples of single-point, multi-point, “good”, and “bad” grounds will be discussed. We will also apply the course learning by discussing and examining actual SILENT client case histories as well as examples of integrated circuit application notes that give bad EMC design advice.
