SYLLABUS FOR THE CLAYTON R. PAUL GLOBAL EMC AND SI UNIVERSITY 2014

 

Monday August 4, AM 08.00-12.00: 

(0) 08.00-08.15, Welcome and Introduction to GU
      Instructor: Professor Antonio Orlandi

(1) 08.15-09.50, Transmission Lines: Frequency-Domain and Crosstalk
      Instructor: Prof. Farhad Rachidi

Outline: brief review of multiconductor transmission line equations, frequency-domain solutions, per-unit-length parameters, electrically short line approximation: capacitive and inductive coupling, shielded and twisted wires.
 

(2) 10.10-12.00, Radiated Emissions and EMC standards
      Instructor: Professor Lee Hill 

Outline: This talk will discuss how radiated electromagnetic emissions are produced in an electronic product, the four noise coupling paths and design methods that reduce those emissions.  Fundamental sources, noise coupling paths, and antenna structures that cause strong radiated emissions.

 

Monday, August 4, PM 01.00-05.00:

(1) 01.00-02.50, Conducted Emissions and Power Supply Filters
      Instructor: Professor Mark A. Steffka

Outline: Brief review of the conducted emission regulatory requirements, the LISN, common-mode and differential-mode currents, analysis of typical power supply filters.

(1) 03.10-05.00, Grounding
      Instructor: Professor Elya Joffe

Outline: The concept of “Ground” and the theory behind grounding, removing the "black magic" and shed some light on the fundamental concept of grounding , an essential and inseparable concept in EMC design.

 

Tuesday, August 5, AM 08.00-12.00:

(1) 08.00-09.50, KEYNOTE LECTURE BY HENRY OTT

(2) 10.10-12.00, Overview of EMC Test Facilities
      Instructor: Professor Chuck Bunting

Outline: The physical characteristics, test electromagnetic environment, and the advantages and disadvantages of anechoic (multiple types) and reverberation chambers will be presented to conduct emissions and susceptibility tests.


Wednesday, August 6, AM 08.00-12.00:

(1)  08.00-09:50, Introduction to Signal Integrity
        Instructor: Eric Bogatin

Outline: Introduction to the six families of signal integrity problems and to the five essential principles of signal on interconnects. Examples of using analysis tools to explore design space to find ways of reducing signal integrity problems such as using 2D field solvers, 3D field solvers and circuit simulators.

(2) 10:10-12.00, Introduction to Power Integrity
      Instructor: Professor James Drewniak

Outline: A wealth of practical experience, together with available post-layout analysis tools contributes to the success of power integrity practices in present high-speed product applications.  However, a methodical, systematic approach that is guided by well described physics and models, equivalent circuit where applicable, and which correspond to those physics, is not readily available for practice.  This section details physics and a methodology for practical PDN design.


Thursday, August 7, AM 08.00-12.00:

(1)  08.00-09:50, Electrostatic Discharge
       Instructor: Professor David Pommerenke

Outline: Starting at basic physics of ESD, coupling into products of fields and currents, showing root causes of ESD upsets in products and explaining the optimization of ESD testing.

(2) 10:10-12.00, EMC for Wireless Devices
      Instructor: Professor Jun Fan

Outline: Brief introductions on radio-frequency interference issues in wireless devices, including fundamental coupling physics, general measurement techniques, noise source characterization, and estimation of receiver desensitization.
