Practical EMC and EMI Control for Engineers and Technicians

THE WORKSHOP

This workshop focuses on the issues of interest to you if you are working in design, operation or maintenance of analog or digital systems involving sensors, data acquisition, process control, cables, signal processing, programmable logic controllers, power distribution, high speed logic etc. The circuit board layout section concentrates on design and layout of circuits and components on a printed circuit board. The overall focus is on useful design and systems issues; not about regulations and standards. The idea is that you will take this material back with you to your work and apply the key principles immediately to your design and troubleshooting challenges.
