EMC/EMI Course Overview

The course duration is 32 academic hours and will be delivered over 4 meetings of 8 academic hours each
This is a comprehensive and intensive course.
The course, is presented by  leading technical experts from industry and academia with many years of experience. (see Lecturers)
The course provides a thorough introduction to EMC/EMI including: Design to EMC compliance, Measurements, Simulation, Hi speed PCB design, Standards and Regulations
Implementing suppression techniques along with simulation analysis is required to ensure functionality for signal integrity as well as complying with EMC requirements.
The earlier a potential EMC problem is identified, the less disruption it causes to the design process. By including EMC compliant design at an early stage, additional costly development iterations can be avoided later on.
The Course motto is “Right from the First Time” but in case you encounter a second compliance test round the course will provide you with the tools to identify locate and deal with the problems
The main course outline includes:
  • Inrtoduction and Principles of: Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) (led by Oren Hartal)
  • EMC/EMI measurements, in time and frequency domains including spectrum analysis and Case studies (led by Dr. Shmuel Miller)
  • EMC/EMI Simulation  (led by David Aviram)
  • Fundamentals of PCB design for Power and Signal Integrity and EMC Compliance (led by Shlomi Zigdon)
  • EMC standards, the requirements that commercial and military electronic systems must meet-a comprehensive review of standards and regulations (led by Oren Hartal)
  • An Introductory tour in Hermon Labs to acquire familiarity with the environment and testing methods
