Often EMC non-compliances are rooted in fundamental design decisions that were made early in the development program and are difficult to undo. By taking Mr. Franklin’s advice and front loading a development with appropriate EMC effort the total cost of compliance is dramatically reduced and the team can perform to plan and hold to budgets.
Think of it, no more missed commitments, no more out of control budgets. With a solid understanding of the physics your team will be able to execute to plan and deliver on time.
The trick is in understanding the nature of radio frequency energy confinement. It requires control of the physical conductive and non-conductive shapes. As mechanical engineers often optimize these shapes without EMC in mind, they often create shapes that do not contain the RF energy. The result is an EMC failure found late in the program and changes that are expensive in both manpower and product cost.
This is why we prefer to work with the entire development team as the solution often takes a team effort.
If the time for proactive front loading has passed and immediate assistants is required, we still recommend training the team first. It allows the team to move past their fears, frustration and confusion creating an environment of success.
