Texas Instruments’ switching noise on audio reduction using spread spectrum tech. Link here Automotive systems have many regulations and requirements, from electromagnetic interference (EMI) to thermals to functional safety, but one consideration that stands above the rest when it comes to immediate consumer dissatisfaction is audible noise. In this technical article, I’ll discuss common sources […]
App note from ON Semiconductors on EMI self pollution. Link here (PDF) This application note will address the problem of Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) self pollution in which one part of an electrical systems such as cell phones and consumer electrical products emit radiation that interferes with the operation of other parts of the system.
Application note form Würth Elektronik about EM radiation radiated from inductors in DC-DC converters. Link here (PDF) This Application Note focuses on the Electro-Magnetic (EM) radiation behavior of power inductor(s) in DC-DC converters, which is dependent on several parameters such as ripple current, switching frequency, rise & fall time of a switching device, the core […]
App note from ON Semiconductors discussing how locally generated EMI affects its own system and how to prevent it. Link here (PDF) This application note will address the problem of Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) self pollution in which one part of an electrical systems such as cell phones and consumer electrical products emit radiation that […]
Efficient magnetic shielding application note from Würth Elektronik, Link here (PDF) Magnetic Field Interferences are increasing in electronic devices due to a number of factors including reduced separation distances of PCB’s, Integrated Circuits and many other sensitive components. In addition to this the extended use of magnetically coupled communication technologies (Qi-WPC, NFC, RFID, PMA, A4WP, […]
Here’s an App note from Precision Microdrives on EMI from vibration motors and their Electromagnetic compatibility. Link is here Electromagnetic interference (EMI) is the radiation or induction of electromagnetic noise on a system. DC motors are a common source of EMI, as are most electromagnetic circuit components. They are potential sources of noise and can […]
Application note(PDF) specific on microcontroller EMC from ST Microelectronics. Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) must be taken into account at the very beginning of a project as the cost of correcting an EMC problem encountered at the start of production can be far greater that the cost of a detailed EMC study during the development phase of […]
Application note(PDF) on EMC from ST Microelectronics. Because many electronic circuits are in proximity to each other, it is essential that their design is not affected by external noise sources and that the circuit itself is not a noise source affecting other circuits. This relationship is known as electromagnetic compatibility or EMC. Sources of electromagnetic […]
An ESD and EMI protection app note(PDF) from NXP for SD and MMC memory interfaces. This document gives an overview about different ESD protection and EMI filter devices optimized for SD-memory card and MMC interfaces. These devices cover the range from 1-bit to current standard 4-bit (SD-memory card, SD 2.0) or 8-bit (MMC) high-speed memory […]
App note(PDF) on NUF2441FC EMI and ESD filter chip from ON Semiconductor. The continued ever-increasing integration of more functions into personal electronic devices such as cell phones has made electronics manufacturers demand more integrated functions to reduce part count and save board space. Cell phone manufacturers have also driven component manufacturers to produce more efficient […]
Giorgos over at PCBheaven posted this video by Alan Wolke aka W2AEW about the basics of ferrite beads, and their uses for basic filtering applications: Here is an excellent tutorial on how ferrite beads can attenuate high frequency interference into data or power lines, such as EMI. I encourage you to watch this video!
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) isn’t something you usually think about until after you’ve accidentally zapped a sensitive component and can’t figure out why it looks OK but isn’t working. Similarly, electromagnetic interference (EMI) usually isn’t taken into account unless it begins to negatively impact a new wireless design. TI has released a 41-page PDF entitled System […]
Squonk informs us of some interesting papers (PDFs) on noise suppression techniques and EMI suppression filters available from muRata. The same page also contains some information on the EMI regulations in different countries. Via the contact form.
