EMC UK 2018

In 2018 we have a designated area for EMC UK within the What’s New in Electronics Live exhibition, which in turn is alongside Sensors & Instrumentation in Hall 1 at the NEC on the 25th & 26th September 2018.

This will make the Exhibition the Premier UK all Electronics show and not just a small part of a larger exhibition, with a broader non-electronic technical spectrum.

We are also planning to run the Training Conference alongside the Exhibition, the detailed Training programme is included below.

EMC UK 2018 Conference Program

Both Days:
Registration & Refreshments 08:30
10:30 to 11:00 Refreshments in the Exhibition Hub & Exhibition Visit
12:30 to 14:00 Lunch in the Exhibition Hub & Exhibition Visit


Tuesday 25 September

09.00 to 10.30 - Everything we need to know in 2018 about... Shielding
Keith Armstrong

Shielding is the complementary part to filtering and transient suppression, and in 2018 has to deal with many GHz. We no longer always need metal or metallised plastic boxes: modern shielding can often be small, light, low cost and – if needed at all – can be simply a part that is assembled on the PCB.

11:00 to 12:30 - Everything we need to know in 2018 about... Filtering and suppression
Tim Williams

Filtering is the complementary part of shielding. Supply, analogue and digital I/O interfaces have different requirements for filtering and transient suppression and we cover the relevant design principles for choosing the right configuration in each case.

14:00 to 15:30 - Everything we need to know in 2018 about... PCB layout for EMC
Keith Armstrong

The most cost-effective place to avoid EMC problems is in the PCB, but good PCB layout for EMC changes more rapidly than any other aspect of good EMC engineering, and in 2018 has to deal with many GHz. If PCB EMC design practices haven’t been reviewed against the state of the art since 2014 or 2015, it is important that we do so now.

Wednesday 26 September

09:00 to 10:30 - Everything we need to know in 2018 about... EMC compliance tests
Tim Williams

When our product goes to a test house it will be put through a series of EMC tests.
We describe each of the major emissions and immunity tests, and what they mean for design.

11:00 to 12:30 - Everything we need to know in 2018 about... EMC pre-compliance testing
Keith Armstrong

Before we send a product to an EMC Test House (if we do, it’s not mandatory for the EU) we should already know it is likely to pass. Modern low-cost test instruments help save huge amounts of time and money, and some of them will be shown doing exactly that.

14:00 to 15:30 - Everything we need to know in 2018 about... Cabling practices for EMC
Tim Williams

Cables are a major coupling route for interference into and out of a product. We discuss the trade-offs that must be made in the choice between screened and unscreened cables, and show the important constructional and termination aspects in the use of screened cables.

EMC Technology is relevant to ALL industries, it can affect every piece of Electronic & Electrical Equipment, and it can seriously affect the design cycle, delay production and time to market.

In short it can cost money and reduce profits.

Keep up to date with the new directives, components, test techniques, test equipment and latest EMC Modelling software.

Over 20 companies with experts on their stands that can give you the free advice you need.
