Chapter 4 Spatial conduction and its countermeasures

Many of the electromagnetic noise interferences are transmitted through space via radio waves. Chapter 4 describes the spatial conduction of noise. The chapter first discusses the interference between circuits (problem of short distance) and then describes the antenna theory (problem of long distance) and shielding to block this problem.

Noise Suppression Basic Course [Part 1]

In Section 2, we will explain practical approaches and methods of noise suppression, deciding on themes as we proceed.

Theme 1 Proper Use of Noise Suppression Products for Digital Circuits

To resolve the problem of noise inflicted onto radios, TVs, and other devices by digital devices, EMI suppression filters have become widely used. This theme provides examples of the proper use of typical EMI suppression filters: capacitors, resistors, and ferrite beads. Also, this theme explains the reason why the noise suppression effect varies among sets.

Theme 2 How to Select Ferrite Beads Considering the Characteristics of Digital Circuits

Radiation noise and other noise increase with the acceleration of the signal speed of digital signal lines. If the amplitude of the signal voltage is lowered to accelerate the signal speed, ringing of the signal waveform becomes a problem. This theme describes the changes in the waveform and radiation noise when a resistor is added to a standard logic IC and impedance matching is performed, as well as how to select ferrite beads for signal lines for which impedance matching has been performed.

Theme 3 Noise Suppression in Differential Transmission NEW

Differential transmission is widely utilized for high-speed signal lines of noise countermeasures of recent electronic devices. This theme explains the reason for this, the noise that should be taken into consideration in the differential transmission line, and the suppression methods for the noise. This theme also explains the basis of the mixed S parameter, which represents the transmission characteristics of the differential transmission line, and the effect of these characteristics.
