Emc basics concepts

Notion of margin

Parasitic emission (dBµV)

Nominal Level

Design Objective

WHY A MARGIN ?

  • To ensure low parasitic emission ICs supplier has to adopt margins

  • Margin depends on the application domain


Emc basics concepts

Notion of margin

INFLUENT PARAMETERS ON IC EMC

  • The variability between components induce a dispersion of emission and susceptibility level. Radiated emission in TEM cell of a 16 bit microcontroller PIC18F2480. Measurement of 12 samples and extraction of emission level dispersion.

  • The temperature of a circuit has a direct impact on the switching time of internal devices. When temperature increases, the high frequency content of the emission spectrum tends to be reduced.

Std deviation = 1.7 dB
