Radiated emissions is usually the number one failure when it comes to EMC compliance testing. This, plus the fact few universities or colleges teach how to design products for compliance often necessitate repeated testing, cost overruns, and project release delays. This fast-paced presentation will explain the most common reasons for product failure, describe my three-step process for troubleshooting radiated emissions using live demos, and demonstrate how to perform simple pre-compliance testing on a budget. This will help you "know before you go" prior to formal compliance testing!
Attendees will learn how to approach troubleshooting an emission issue in a systematic manner and how to perform low-cost pre-compliance testing for radiated and conducted emissions in-house.
