Electromagnetic interference (EMI) causes malfunctions in electronic devices or components, resulting in hazardous consequences as soft and hard errors do. Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is defined as the ability of a device, equipment, or system to function satisfactorily in its electromagnetic environment without introducing intolerable electromagnetic disturbances to anything in that environment [1].
