The material presented in this tutorial will be focused on the physics of electromagnetic energy basic principles, presented in easy to understand language with plenty of diagrams. Attendees will discover how understanding the behavior of EM fields can help to design PCBs that will be more robust and have better EMC performance. This is not rocket science, but an easy to understand application of PCB geometry.


This course will provide an easy to understand description of the behavior of electromagnetic field energy. This understanding is critical to development of properly functioning, compliant products.
