Top Risks of Electromagnetic Interference and What to do about it

Top Risks of Electromagnetic Interference and What to do about it

Electromagnetic interference is the electronic emittance of electronic noise. These unwanted signals are generated by electrical equipment and flow through electrical circuits and both the simple and complex wiring of electronics. While these signals do enable the operation of electrical equipment, they also produce undesirable consequences. In some cases, these side effects are not detectable, […]

How a Capacitor Works as an EMI/EMC Filter

How a Capacitor Works as an EMI/EMC Filter

The capacitor is a component/device that stores or “holds up” an electrical charge into the electronic circuitry. This applied charge and discharge method greatly reduces the magnetically driven electrical impulses; plus can turn an electrical flow constant into a series of electrical impulses, reducing or eliminating the culprit RFI / EMI. The Simple Process of […]

The Importance of Following Compliance Requirements During the Design Phase

The Importance of Following Compliance Requirements During the Design Phase

Aerospace & Military manufacturing industries employ engineers that may include manufacturing, telecommunications, composite component, and electronic / electrical product sectors. In order to keep the redesign and retesting costs down to a minimum, all of the engineering design / manufacturing groups must comply with the contract parameters from concept to delivery. For example, the Mil-Standards […]
