 EMC UK 2017 Training Conference

Tuesday 9th May 2017 Training

Registration & Refreshments 08.30.

Session One 09.00 to 10.30

Everything we need to know in 2017 about... EMC compliance tests   
Tim Williams

When our product goes to a test house it will be put through a series of EMC tests. 
We describe each of the major emissions and immunity tests, and what they mean for design.

10.30 to 11.00 Refreshments in the Exhibition Hub & Exhibition Visit

Session Two 11.00 to 12.30

Everything we need to know in 2017 about... EMC pre-compliance testing  
Keith Armstrong

Before we send a product to an EMC Test House (if we do, it’s not mandatory for the EU) we should already know it is likely to pass. Modern low-cost test instruments help save huge amounts of time and money, and some of them will be shown doing exactly that.

12.30 to 14.00 Lunch in the Exhibition Hub & Exhibition Visit

Session Three 14.00 to 15.30

Everything we need to know in 2017 about... Cabling practices for EMC  
Tim Williams

Cables are a major coupling route for interference into and out of a product. We discuss the trade-offs that must be made in the choice between screened and unscreened cables, and show the important constructional and termination aspects in the use of screened cables.

Wednesday 10th May 2017 Training

Registration & Refreshments 08.30.

Session One 09.00 to 10.30

Everything we need to know in 2017 about... Shielding 
Keith Armstrong

 Shielding is the complementary part to filtering and transient suppression, and in 2017 has to deal with many GHz. We no longer always need metal or metallised plastic boxes: modern shielding can often be small, light, low cost and – if needed at all – can be simply a part that is assembled on the PCB.

10.30 to 11.00 Refreshments in the Exhibition Hub & Exhibition Visit

Session Two 11.00 to 12.30

Everything we need to know in 2017 about... Filtering and suppression 
Tim Williams

Filtering is the complementary part of shielding. Supply, analogue and digital I/O interfaces have different requirements for filtering and transient suppression and we cover the relevant design principles for choosing the right configuration in each case.

12.30 to 14.00 Lunch in the Exhibition Hub & Exhibition Visit

Session Three 14.00 to 15.30

Everything we need to know in 2017 about... PCB layout for EMC  
Keith Armstrong

The most cost-effective place to avoid EMC problems is in the PCB, but good PCB layout for EMC changes more rapidly than any other aspect of good EMC engineering, and in 2017 has to deal with many GHz. If PCB EMC design practices haven’t been reviewed against the state of the art since 2014 or 2015, it is important that we do so now.

EMC UK 2017 Technical Conference

Unfortunately due to the low number of bookings for the Technical conference, we have made the decission to withdraw the Technical programme from the conference.
