Description

This module covers PCB design particularly with regard to manufacturing and testability. Also issues relating to the minimising of EMI at the board and system level and the need to meet EMC requirements will be addressed.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Understand the principles of PCB design for manufacturability and testability, and to minimise EMI and meet EMC requirements.

2.

Outline the analogue and digital segregation issues and grounding issues which arise when different electronic modules are connected together in a system.

3.

Identify the design issues for enclosures of electronic products to minimise EMI and meet EMC requirements.

4.

Perform EMC radiated and conducted tests using a spectrum analyser and basic test methods.

5.

Design a PCB from a schematic using a PCB layout software package.

2016-08-01 EMC for Product Designers Newnes
ISBN 0081010168 ISBN-13 9780081010167

EMC for Product Designers, Fifth Edition, provides all the key information needed to meet the requirements of the EMC compliance standards. More importantly, it shows how to incorporate EMC principles into the product design process, avoiding cost and performance penalties to meet the needs of specific standards that produce a better overall product. As well as covering the 2016 versions of the EU EMC and Radio Directives, this new edition has been thoroughly updated to be in line with the latest best practices in EMC compliance and product design. Coverage now includes extra detail on the main automotive, military, and aerospace standards requirements, as well as a discussion of the issues raised by COTS equipment in military applications. New to this edition are chapters on functional safety, design and installation aspects of switchmode power converters with an introduction to EMC testing of integrated circuits, new details on CISPR 32/35, updates to new versions of the Directives DEF STAN 59-411, DO-160 and MIL STD 461, with more commentary on the implications and requirements of military and aerospace standards, and an added reference to CE Marking for military and problems of COTS. In addition, new sections on IC emissions measurements per IEC 61967 are included, along with new coverage of FFT/time domain receivers, an expanded section on military/aerospace transients, special references to DO160 lightning, added material on MIL STD 461 CE101, RE101, and RS101, the latest practice in PCB layout with a discussion of slots in ground planes, current practice on decoupling, extended coverage of DC-DC converters and motor drives, and a new section on switching inverter (motor drives, renewable energy converters, etc.) installation, and the latest 2016 mandatory regulations of the RTTE and EMC Directives. Presents a complete introduction to EMC for product design from a practicing consultant in the field Includes short case studies that demonstrate how EMC product design is put into practice Provides the latest 2016 mandatory regulations of both the RTTE Directive and EMC Directive

2015-10-15 Handbook of Driver Assistance Systems Springer
ISBN 3319123513 ISBN-13 9783319123516

This fundamental work explains in detail systems for active safety and driver assistance, considering both their structure and their function. These include the well-known standard systems such as Anti-lock braking system (ABS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) or Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). But it includes also new systems for protecting collisions protection, for changing the lane, or for convenient parking. The book aims at giving a complete picture focusing on the entire system. First, it describes the components which are necessary for assistance systems, such as sensors, actuators, mechatronic subsystems, and control elements. Then, it explains key features for the user-friendly design of human-machine interfaces between driver and assistance system. Finally, important characteristic features of driver assistance systems for particular vehicles are presented: Systems for commercial vehicles and motorcycles.
