Root Causes of Conducted and Radiated Emission Failures including Do’s & Don’ts of PCB Layout Design
Presented by: QAI
Time: 2:30PM, Upper Foyer

This seminar is put together for technical and certification professionals responsible for design and certification of electronic products for the global market. It is critical to implement early in the design cycle the emissions and immunity safeguards to meet the rigorous certification guidelines. Many electronic products still lack some of the basic design guidelines causing non-compliance and product delay.
The aim of this presentation is to provide engineers and system designers with a set of practical diagnostic approaches, root causes of radiated emission failures, troubleshooting techniques and cost-effective solutions for the most common types of EMC problems. This one hour-long presentation will review: the use of preliminary scans, what to do when radiated emission failures are encountered, in-house measurement techniques, low-cost measurement tools and PCB layout techniques that will and won’t work for solving EMC problems.
