Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is the field of engineering that spe-cializes in reducing or eliminating the unwant-ed side effects of working with electromagnetic phenomena. It inter-twines closely with RF and microwave circuit design, digital circuit design and layout, antenna technology and measurement techniques. It even is part of law and public policy when it involves spec-trum management and regulatory standards. This tutorial presents some of the time- honored facts about designing for EMC, and also presents some of the latest EDA tools that can aid in the design of a compliant and robust product. The speed and complexity of today’s software has reached the point where it is practical to analyze all or part of an oper-ating circuit in laid out form in a package, p.c. board, or other substrate.
