Controlling EMI Sources — Intentional Signals

  • Bruce R. Archambeault
Part of the The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 696)


When starting to think about EMI design, the most effective approach is to consider the actual sources of EMI emissions, and treat them all individually. Most of the causes of EMI emissions at the printed circuit (PC) board level are separable and can be considered and treated individually, without increasing the emissions from some other source.
