Achieving compliant electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) performance of equipment and systems is essential to ensure the safety, reliability and availability of the equipment in its intended installation environment. For this reason military and avionics procurement contracts specify the level of EMC performance required. This is usually by reference to test standards such as; Defence Standard 59-411, MIL-STD 461 or RTCA DO 160/ED 14.
This course explains the fundamentals of EMC, the content of EMC standards and how testing is performed and reported. It enables manufacturers and suppliers to prepare all necessary information and their equipment ready for test.
