Chapter 9 of NS’s Power Management Design Seminar Series’ Analog Seminar addresses the ways that noise propagates, or “couples”, in a system and proposes techniques for minimizing it. It provides overviews of conductive coupling, near-field magnetic coupling, and electric field coupling and outlines printed circuit board (PCB) design solutions, including magnetic self-shielding and making adjustments to PCB antennae.
