What is EMC/EMI? Where does it come from? What steps do I need to take to insure compatibility in today's world? Power quality as it relates to electro-magnetic compatibility is a growing topic among audio equipment manufacturers in the advent of the digital age. This abstract looks at equipment emissions and susceptibility and how to remedy noise problems with effective EMC design in the early stages. The paper and presentation will also offer ideas for integrating voltage selection, overcurrent protection and on/off switching into the overall aspects of compact, high performance design. Cord connection and retaining systems will also be covered.
