EMI Filtering for High Reliability Applications

EMI Filtering for High-Reliability Applications Amanda Ison AVX Corporation, 11144 Penrose St, Sun Valley, CA 91352www.avx.com INTRODUCTION Electromagnetic interference (EMI), or electrical noise, is generated by everything from cellphones to solar flares and can make accurate signal transmission as difficult as trying to have a clear conversation in a noisy room. To improve signal clarity in electronic circuits, device designers turn to EMI suppression filters. Effective EMI filtering is necessary for almost every modern electronic device, including devices that generate their own EMI, as well as devices that are...

Best Practices and Advises for Antenna Tuning

BEST PRACTICES & ADVISESFOR ANTENNA TUNING OVERVIEW Connectivity is key in today’s world and devices in the market require strong signal strength to allow for peak performance. Integrating an antenna is not trivial, whether it is an off-the-shelf product or a highly customized solution, and should not be an afterthought. The AVX antenna design team strongly recommends considering the antenna design and/or the antenna integration process as early as possible, ideally during the product design and the radio module selection. A perfect match between the radio and the antenna...
