3 cr.


EE 301 and EE 314 or the equivalents.

Course Description

Senior level course focusing on the application of electromagnetic field and wave principles to equipment and system design practices for the control of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and the achievement of Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC). EMI requirements for electronic equipment, EMI measurements, non-ideal behavior of components, spectrum analysis, radiated emissions and susceptibility, conducted emissions, crosstalk, field-to-cable and cable-to-field coupling, electrostatic discharge, grounding, and system configuration. The primary methods of assessing student learning are homework assignments, quizzes, exams, and design projects.
