Near-field scanners let you see EMI

Article by instructor Arturo Mediano about near-field scanners.

I love near field probes because they let me "see" magnetic and electric fields with an oscilloscope or with a spectrum analyzer. They let locate sources of emissions in board, cables, and systems. Near-field scanners also let you see emissions, particularly all over a board. That's hard to do with a single probe.

Instructor Arturo Mediano has written an article for In Compliance magazine:

Digital and power electronic systems can reduce the radiated and conducted emissions profile using spread spectrum techniques. Typically, no more than 10-12dB can be obtained with those techniques but the result can be useful to comply with regulations...

Reducing VHF Radiated EMI with an RC Snubber

Instructor Arturo Mediano has published an article with In Compliance magazine on reducing VHF EMI from a flyback power supply.

Usually, EMC design guidelines in flyback literature are related with the switching effects of the output transistor to minimize emissions for conducted tests in the 9 kHz to 30 MHz range. But failure in radiated emissions in the VHF range is typical when testing the product for EMC compliance.
