An Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) environment is created when a product functions without error, or is compatible, in its intended electromagnetic-environment. On the other hand, Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) is created when electromagnetic emissions from a product or system interfere with the normal operation of another product or system.
RTL provides EMC mitigation and troubleshooting services for conducted emissions, radiated emissions, conducted immunity and radiated immunity. Using systematic approaches to find and fix EMC problems in non-compliant products, in most cases we can quickly analyze the symptoms, identify the problem and offer interim and permanent fixes to be applied in order to meet the requirements of the applicable regulatory standards.
We do this by identifying the three essential elements of any EMI/EMC phenomenon, namely the source (culprit), the receptor (victim), and the coupling path. The methods of coupling electromagnetic energy from a source to a receptor fall into one of four categories - radiated emission (electromagnetic field), inductively coupled (magnetic field), conducted (electric current), and capacitive-coupled (electric field).
