ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPATIBILITY Dr. Donald Church Senior Staff Engineer International Rectifier Automotive Systems November 17, 2005
Electromagnetic Compatibility Outline Introduction: Terms & Definitions EMC in Product Development: Activities & Outputs EMC in the Automotive Environment: Challenges Example: Electro-Hydraulic Power Steering System EMC and the IEEE: Education Questions
ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPATIBILITY (EMC) 1.Electromagnetic Emissions Your System Cannot Interfere With Other Systems or Subsystems in the Vehicle (e.g., FM Radio). 2.Electromagnetic Susceptibility Your System Must Continue to Operate Correctly in the Presence of Interference From Others or Transient Disturbances.
ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI) Conducted Interference Enters/Exits on Wires for Power or Control Radiated Interference Enters/Exits Through the Air Emissions Must be Controlled to Protect: AM & FM Radio Stations Aircraft Communications & Navigation Emergency Services Land Communications
EMC in Product Development Typical Development Cycle Outputs Product Specification System Architecture Physical Design Product Qualification Corresponding EMC Outputs EMC Requirements Analysis EMC Concept Review EMC Design Review EMC Lessons Learned
EMC in Product Development Typical EMC Activities During Product Development Specification: Architectural/System Design: Detailed Design: Prototype/Qualification: Define the EMC requirements (5 types). Which directives apply? Ensure the standards are understood. What are the implications? Propose preliminary EMC design concepts. Create the EMC test plan. Propose PCB design strategies. Review Power Stage Concept for EMC. Do an EMC risk analysis. Implement the strategies and concepts. Do pre-screening tests and simulation. Do formal certification testing. Re-design & Re-test? Failures here are expensive!
EMC In The Automotive Environment Harsh Environment Power Line Transients RF Interference Electrostatic Discharge Power Line Electric & Magnetic Fields High Reliability 1 ppm Goal Fail Safe is Critical Extreme Cost Sensitivity
EMC In The Automotive Environment: Susceptibility Power Transients Inductive Load Switching Voltage Sag Load Dump RF Immunity On-Board Transmitters Radio Stations Airport Radar Systems Sensors are Most Vulnerable Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Up to 15kV
EMC In The Automotive Environment: Emissions Radiated Emissions Very Sensitive Receivers Distance to the Antenna 50dB Lower Than Commercial Limits Cables Are Unintended Antennas PCB Traces Also Radiate Digital Circuits Are The Main Source
EMI Lesson #1: Remember Fourier! The Energy in a Trapezoidal Waveform is a Function of the Pulse Width and the Rise and Fall Times. Example: 20kHz waveform with 10ns rise & fall times. F1 ~ 13kHzF2 ~ 32MHz
