A growing number of electronic devices are being used in our daily lives, making electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) increasingly important. To comply with market requirements and avoid costly recalls, manufacturers in industries such as consumer products, medical devices, industrial machinery, railway, automotive, aerospace and military equipment must ensure that electromagnetic disturbances do not interfere with the function of their products. These manufacturers are also under pressure to maintain quality while reducing cost and time to market.

EMC compliance is a mandatory requirement in most markets including Europe, the U.S., China, Korea, Australia and New Zealand. EMC testing is necessary to help you meet regulatory requirements, improve product performance and reduce the risk of costly non-compliance. Third-party EMC tests and conformity assessments also help to strengthen your competitive position in the market.

It is important to consider EMC requirements from the beginning of the product design cycle, apply good EMC engineering practices, provide a list of sources of clock and critical EMC components, and prepare supporting equipment with satisfactory EMC performance.
