The EMC Blog

- January 31, 2014

Arturo Mediano is a professor at University of Zaragoza (Spain) and founder of The HF-Magic Lab®, a specialized laboratory for design, diagnostic, troubleshooting, and training in the EMI/EMC/SI and RF fields. He is also an instructor for Besser Associates (CA, USA) offering public and on site courses in EMI/EMC/SI/RF subjects. In The EMC Blog, he'll provide interesting and useful information about EMI and EMC, including real-world circuits, waveforms, and design/troubleshooting techniques, interesting tools and instruments on the market, as well as EMI/EMC conferences and symposia around the world.


Connectors: Not just schematic symbols

  • 10.24.2017

At a presentation for the Central New England IEEE EMC Society chapter, Colin Brench showed how at high-speed connectors can result in EMI emissions, affect signal integrity, and create thermal problems.Read More...

IoT: The Interference of Things

  • 08.10.2017

A technical session at the 2017 IEEE EMC+SIPI Symposium made it clear that EMI engineers will be constantly fixing interference problems as billions of wireless devices come online. Read More...

Near-field scanning: useful or misleading?

  • 12.29.2016

Near-field probes can help you find the source of emissions, but remember, not all fields propagate.Read More...

Check the lab for false radiated emissions

  • 08.26.2016

If you see emissions that you can't explain, look beyond for EUT to other equipment in the lab. Read More...


Near-field scanners let you see EMI

  • 06.23.2016

EMI scanners can display the spectral and special view of a circuit's emissions. From those plots, you can quickly see how circuit changes affect emissions.Read More...

Platform interference

  • 12.18.2015

Every manufacturer seemingly wishes to add some form of wireless capability into new and existing mobile, household, industrial, scientific, and medical product. This trend toward the “Internet of Things” is in full swing and with it comes problems with EMI. That is, EMI from the product itself, that interferes with sensitive telephone, GPS/GNSS, and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth receivers. This is called “platform interference” and it’s a big problem for manufacturers.Read More...
