Increasing your products immunity against electromagnetic disturbances
23-02-2017 :: Ostend

Organizer: KULeuven

The research group ReMI (Reliability in Mechatronics and ICT) organizes a course on basic and advanced techniques to increase the immunity of products against electromagnetic disturbances.

Time: Thursday 23 and Friday 24 february 2017
Place: KU Leuven Technology Campus Ostend, Zeedijk 101, Ostend.


Due  to  the  ever  increasing  use  of  electronic  systems  in  almost  every  possible application, the generation of possible disturbances has been continuously growing over the last decade with no signs that this trend will be broken. Besides, one sees that electronic systems are being applied more and more in and for mission or even safety critical functions which require an extremely high resilience against all environmental stresses, including electromagnetic disturbances, over the whole foreseen lifetime. As a product developer it is often very difficult to assess the products environment, let alone foresee the effect  of various electromagnetic disturbances on the product itself.
In this training course several topics about the immunity of electronic products and their electromagnetic environment are discussed. Low-cost pre-compliance debugging and protection techniques against ESD, surge transients, etc. are presented.


This course is divided in two days and includes following topics
Day 1:
Intro on EMC & immunity 
Resilience to EM disturbances for mission- or safety-critical systems
Assessing an EM environment 
Overview of basic EMC immunity test methods 
Basic low-cost precompliance immunity testing 
Day 2:
Advanced low-cost precompliance immunity testing
Protection against ESD
Protecting against surge, transients, etc
Protecting from AC/DC power quality
Participation fee
€650 (excl. VAT) for both days
€350 (excl. VAT) for only day 1
A 10% discount applies for members of Agoria, the RELIM project or the INPROVOL project. The participation fee includes course notes, lunches and coffee breaks.
