ECE 498 - Engineering Electromagnetic Compatibility

Course Description

Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is the subject of building electronic systems which will work as intended in an electromagnetic environment. The systems shall not cause electromagnetic interference (EMI). Also, they are not susceptible to EMI from themselves or other systems. This course is designed to provide fundamental understanding of electromagnetic sources, different coupling mechanisms, how electronic devices are affected by the electromagnetic interference, and how to design electronic systems that comply with EMC standards. Topics range from EMC requirements for electronic systems; sources of electromagnetic noises; coupling mechanisms; radiated and conducted emissions and susceptibility; crosstalk, grounding, and shielding; as well as system design for EMC.
