Basic EMC definitions, specifications and susceptibility measurements are briefly summarized in this chapter. The link between electromagnetism and EMC at circuit level is shortly established and described. This description is far from complete; however, it summarizes the core ideas hidden behind practical standardized measurement setups. More importantly, it helps to fix the thought about what circuit elements play a significant role in the pickup of EMI using the dimensionless electrical length. In addition, the approach pursued in this chapter modestly contributes to the demystification of basic rule of thumb EMC rules and guidelines.
