Dylan Stinson (Product Manager, Tektronix)

Location: Ballroom A

Time: 1:30pm - 4:30pm

Track: 12. Electromagnetic Compatibility/Mitigating Interference

Session Type: Tutorial

Audience Level: Intermediate

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 tutorial will explain the most common reasons for product failure, describe a straightforward process for troubleshooting radiated emissions, 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 the typical causes of radiated emissions, how to approach troubleshooting an emission issue in a systematic manner, how to perform simple pre-compliance testing in-house, and how to assemble and use some simple low-cost and DIY tools and instruments for identifying and mitigating radiating structures in their products.

Intended Audience

Attendees with a basic engineering degree or relevant experience will get the most from this presentation.
