Webinar Overview

Radiated emissions is usually the most common EMI failure for product desigers and many will dread having to tackle this often project-delaying and costly challenge. Most engineers know about probing with near-field probes, but are at a loss as to what to do next with the information? I’ve developed a simple three-step process using near-field probes, current probes, and a nearby antenna to successfully troubleshoot hundreds of client projects. With a little knowledge and the right tools, you should be able to reduce the time in troubleshooting and mitigating radiated emissions from several weeks to a few days.
