EMC Systems Design Workshop (New For 2003)

This one-day workshop starts by discussing the systems approach to EMC design and then takes the participants through the EMC design of a product from start to finish.  It shows the "big picture" and contains enough detail to be extremely helpful to new designers, technicians, engineers, engineering managers, as well as veterans of the EMC design trenches.

In addition, EMC regulations will be discussed. This portion of the workshop can be tailored to emphasize regulations for the type of product of most interest to your company.  For example, medical equipment or ITE equipment, etc.

A hypothetical digital product will be used as the workshop example.  This is a "hands-on" workshop and the class will participate by doing much of the EMC design work.

While not meant as a substitute for a multi-day intensive EMC design course, this seminar provides a valuable perspective on the "systems approach" to the EMC design process and provides a solid foundation for future study.

It is desirable, but not required, for participants to have some basic EMC design background.
