MADISON, Wis.— The University of Wisconsin-Madison is bringing back the popular course, Introduction to Electromagnetic Interference and Compatibility (EMI/EMC) and Best Practices.
EMI/EMC is known as a critical requirement for developing competitive products and systems and will be the focus during three intense days of training. In this short course, important topics such as coupling mechanisms, circuit board layout, conducted and radiated emissions, susceptibility, bonding, grounding, and lightning will be explored. Participants can plan on gaining the critical knowledge needed to effectively apply to new product and system designs.
“This course is unique because the EMI/EMC is rarely taught in universities and colleges, hence, there is a knowledge and skillset gap of employees working in the industry.” said Bulent Sarlioglu, UW-Madison Assistant Professor. “EMC design reviews and analysis early in the product development cycle can prevent costly noncompliance issues and redesign.”
Those involved in the system and electrical engineering, mechanical design, project engineering, program management, technical management and system integration will benefit from the strong foundation provided by this class.
“Participants will learn many aspects of EMI/EMC design and compliance including EMI/EMC terminology, magnetic and electric coupling mechanisms, filter design, standards, system and board layout practices, grounding, lighting and surges – Knowledge that will help them to produce final compliant products.” Sarlioglu said.
The course will offer experienced instructors who plan to lecture on both the fundamentals and applications of this rapidly evolving field. Sound engineering knowledge with application examples will be the focus of the course.
