Electromagnetic interference is increasingly becoming a problem in complex systems that must interoperate in both digital and RF domains. When failures due to EMI occur it is often difficult to track down the sources of such failures using standard test receivers and spectrum analyzers. The unique ability of real-time spectrum analysis and synchronous time domain signal acquisition to capture transient events can quickly reveals details about the sources of EMI.

What You Will Learn:

  • How to isolate and analyze sources of EMI using an oscilloscope
  • Measurement considerations for correlating time and frequency domains
  • Near field probing basics
