EMC/EMI Training for Aerospace will help the attendees to develop and build EMC / EMI compliance systems that optimize your system’s performance and reliability.

Electromagnetic Interference (EMI)/Electromagnetic Capability (EMC) for Aerospace Training Course will help you to cost-effectively identify EMC/EMI problems early in your product development cycle. EMC/EMI Training for Aerospace should also help you with the capability of troubleshooting your design if you have compliance problems such as shielding, filtering, bonding and grounding techniques, and associated materials.

Learn how to establish interface and associated verification requirements for the control of the electromagnetic interference (EMI) emission and susceptibility characteristics of electronic, electrical, and electromechanical equipment and subsystems designed or procured for use by Aerospace activities and agencies including items that have the following features: electronic enclosures, equipment racks, electrical interconnections that are discrete wiring harnesses between enclosures and electrical power input derived from prime power sources.
