Title: "Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) for Integrated Circuits:Challenges and Solutions"
Abstract: Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is one of the most prevalent threats to the reliability of electronic components. It is an event in which a radiated or conducted pulse is generated due to a power switching or electrostatic discharge event. Designing on- and off-chip structures to protect integrated circuits against the EMC stress is a high priority in the semiconductor industry. The continuing advancement in semiconductor technology makes the EMC-induced failures even more prominent. In fact, many semiconductor companies worldwide are having difficulties in meeting the increasingly stringent EMC protection requirements for various electronics applications, and one can predict with certainty that the availability of effective and robust EMC protection solutions will become a critical and essential factor to the well-being and commercialization of next-generation electronics.
This talk focuses on the conducted electromagnetic
compatibility which is one of the critical requirements
for the reliability of modern and future electronics.
The topics include the EMC standards, models, protection
schemes, and testing classifications and results.
Challenges and solutions associated with designing and
optimizing the on- and off-chip EMC protection solutions
will also be addressed.
