Element Plano testing laboratory opens its doors for a technical EMI seminar, guided facilities tour and live demonstrations on August 8, 2019. 

Our in-house technical experts will be joined by Kenneth Wyatt, leading EMC testing consultant, for a technical talk on Troubleshooting Wireless and IoT Self-EMI from DC-DC Converters. Please join us to enjoy a free lunch, network with local industry peers, and learn how we can help you meet your product testing needs.

Event schedule

15:00 – 16:00 Meet and greet lunch, networking & lab tours
16:00 – 17:30 Presentation: Troubleshooting Wireless & IoT Self-EMI from DC-DC Converters, by Kenneth Wyatt
17:30 – 18:00 Beer, refreshments, and dessert


One widespread issue manufacturers face with wireless or IoT products is self-generated EMI from onboard DC-DC converters. These small circuits generally switch between 1 and 3 MHz and use fast sub-nanosecond edge speeds. As a result, the subsequent broadband EMI often extends above 2 GHz, which can affect the sensitivity of receiver circuits - especially cellular and GNSS. 

Element's presentation will describe a three-step process for characterizing self-generated EMI and offer tips on mitigation, and also include mitigation steps, including proper PC board design for mixed-signal products.
