Electromagnetic Interference EMI Electromagnetic Compatibility EMC

Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electromagnetic interference (EMI) describe regulatory testing of electronic components of consumer goods.

All electronics emit some degree of electromagnetic radiation. EMI is ectromagnetic energy that alters how an electronic device functions. Electronics that tend to emit more EMI are products like cellphones, LED screens, and motors. Due to the constant presence of EMI, products are engineered and tested to function properly in their presence.

EMC refers to the compatibility of a device to function as expected with the environment around it, regardless of EMI. Electromagnetic susceptibility testing evaluates how electronic devices react when they are exposed to electromagnetic energy. EMC emissions testing measures the amount of EMI emitted from a devices internal electric system. Negative side effects that improper EMC testing can have include safety issues, product failure, or even data loss.  Standards set by ISO, IEC, and CISPR define the acceptable EMI and EMC limits. The majority of devices fail initial EMI and EMC testing.
