Practical SI, PI and EMC training
New training courses have been added to the EMC Standards website to help design engineers ensure safe product design. The courses consist of various presentations, course notes and webinars delivered by worldwide electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) specialist Keith Armstrong, all of which provide engineers with a practical understanding of EMC, signal integrity (SI) and power integrity (PI).
The courses, which Armstrong has delivered globally and personally updated, are available to purchase from EMC Standards’ website. Sample resources are also available to registered members of the website, alongside a range of other educational material.
The full range of courses provides an extensive understanding of good EM engineering practices, with material addressing topics including EMC compliance and testing, SI, PI and EMC design techniques and managing functional safety risks. The training material covers modules, sub-assemblies, products, equipment, systems and installations of any size, type and complexity.
Over the past 20 years, Armstrong has established himself as one of the world’s leading experts on EM engineering and good SI, PI and EMC design. The courses he has delivered in the past have provided practical techniques and training to engineering specialists that have resulted in significant cost and time savings for electronics companies.
The courses were previously only affordable for companies that could send multiple employees at the same time. However, through a special arrangement with Armstrong, the training courses are now available to engineers at an easily affordable cost.
“My aim has always been to transfer knowledge and experience to people by reducing the steep learning curve of EMC education,” explained Armstrong. “These courses have become renowned in the engineering community, as they teach engineers to avoid repeating the costly design mistakes that so many others have made.
“The training courses available through EMC Standards give engineers cost-effective access to years of invaluable design expertise, insight and guidance. Crucially, these course modules are updated frequently to ensure the techniques and practices remain the most relevant and effective in the industry.
“The electronics sector is one of the most rapidly developing in the world, which means that design techniques are constantly required to adapt. Engineers that purchase a course module will be kept up to date with the latest good EM engineering practices, thus ensuring that their designs remain reliable, market viable and, most importantly, safe.”
Each training course module includes a list of additional resources, which are valuable for reinforcing the training and for deepening understanding if required. There is also a free online quiz that allows engineers to quickly improve practical EMC knowledge.
There is a wealth of SI, PI and EMC resources available for free to both members and non-members on the EMC Standards site. The new training material is available from the members-only training section of the site. Engineers and contractors interested in enhancing their knowledge of EMC compliance and practices can register for free.
