Note: The offerings below may be linked together and can be held in-plant or as part of a public presentation where costs in both cases can be shared among the corporate sponsors.
DHC-1: Introduction to CISPR 32 (multimedia) Workshop
This day and a half workshop provides an in-depth review of the latest edition of the CISPR 32 standard that covers compliance measurements of emissions from multimedia products which includes information technology equipment and broadcast receivers. The workshop has several learning and hands on modules including a half day in a test lab. This is an important standard as it replaces the common CISPR 22 (EN55022)-ITE emissions and CISPR 13 (EN55013)—broadcast receiver emissions.
DHC-2: EMC Standards Comparison Workshop
This full-day workshop focuses on direct comparison between the measurement portions of the latest edition of CISPR 32 and ANSI C63.4 (including the revision of test site validation 30 MHz to 1 GHz) for making radiated and conducted emission measurements. Included in the workshop are the proposed changes to both documents showing the further harmonization between them on measuring maximum or near maximum emissions. Differences will continue and will be highlighted as they affect product compliance and associated testing especially where different tests are necessary to adhere to each standard.
DHC-3: Assessing Corporation EMC Regulatory Compliance Strategies
Product regulatory compliance strategies are generally complex. These strategies are generally based on the cost of compliance, what the competition and suppliers are doing, the customer expectation, the emphasis in compliance by regulators, the global nature and requirements for EMC compliance, and corporate goals/practices/margins with respect to meeting regulatory and contractual limits and requirements. This half day workshop will be followed by an up to a half day to review any corporate EMC documentation with customer EMC personnel and management.
DHC-4: Review of primary national and international EMC standards activity
The major international EMC standards organization is the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) located in Geneva, Switzerland. For most major electronic products using microprocessors/computer technology, the IEC International Special Committee on Radio Interference (CISPR) is source of emission and by reference immunity standards. CISPR deals with emission measurements and limits for a wide variety of products from information technology to industrial, scientific and medical devices including automotive systems. For Information Technology products and receivers (now called multimedia) there is also an array of immunity tests and test levels. The technical committee of the IEC that deals directly with immunity standards is TC77 and their standards are referenced in the CISPR immunity documents. This half day seminar reviews the work of CISPR and introduces that of TC77.
