    Several electronic and public utility engineers were recently discussing some of the problems connected with locating and trouble-shooting interference. “One of the troubles you electronic engineers have,” commented a public utility man, “is that you are using ‘microscopes’ to hunt for a needle in a haystack when you should use ‘magnifying glasses.’...

  • Using polarization diversity to detect and analyze impulsive noise

    When measuring impulsive noise on a radio communication channel, other noises and signals come up mixed with it. As impulsive noise is a high amplitude electromagnetic event, the usual method to spot it is to set an amplitude threshold so as to considering impulsive noise arrival whenever the received signal exceeds the threshold. However, weak amplitude impulsive noise would not be detected using... View full abstract»

  • A serious problem in using the Jarvis model for the prediction of crosstalk

    Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):46 - 55
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1616 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The coupled transmission-line equations for a three-conductor, lossless transmission line are solved in symbolic form for its crosstalk voltages using various approximations [1, 2]. The most frequently-used approximate model for predicting crosstalk is referred to as the Jarvis model after its original publisher in 1963 [3]. The Jarvis model uses three approximations that simplify the result. One ... View full abstract»

    This work reviews the use of planar electromagnetic bandgap structures for power bus noise reduction in the GHz band. The key points for a quick and efficient design of planar EBG are also reviewed. A practical application example is offered that is able to combine a good reduction level of power bus noise, together to a limited impact for the interconnects referenced to the EBG patterned plane.

    Welcome to Design Tips! In past issues, we have discussed many aspects of EMC design, including inductance. In my opinion, inductance is the second most misunderstood thing within electrical engineering, and especially EMC. (The first most misunderstood thing is `ground'). In this issue, I'll explore the idea of inductance beyond the normal discussion of the need for a loop of current before the t... View full abstract»

  • Potential interference issues between FCC part 15 compliant UHF ISM emitters and equipment passing standard immunity testing requirements

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (599 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The potential for electromagnetic (EM) interference between multi-channel, FCC Part 15 UHF (902-928 MHz) ISM (Industiral, Scientific, and Medical) [1] emitters and devices that have passed immunity requirements under international standards [2] is examined. At close ranges, the fields from a Part 15.247 compliant emitter may exceed minimum standard immunity testing levels. This does not imply inte... View full abstract»

    We present experimental measurements and analysis of RF interference between a passive RFID system and a generic frequency hopping communications system in the 902 MHz to 928 MHz ISM radio band. Interference in both directions is considered, RFID to communications and vice-versa, and interference mitigation strategies are assessed. Variables of interest include transmission power, antenna location... View full abstract»

    We present a method for measuring ultra-high frequency radio-frequency identification (UHF RFID) tag differential RCS that has the potential for being easier and more accurate than current and proposed methods [1-2]. Our method is based on accurately characterizing the reflection states of a modulated load, accounting for transmission losses between the load and an antenna, and using a well-known,...
