Learning outcomes:
Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is not only the basic requirement of any electronics development in the automotive sector, but also a legally required product specification. In this module, students will learn the basic terms, principles and topics related to EMC. After successfully completing this module, students will be able to understand the basic requirements of EMC in vehicles and analyze and identify the causes of interference problems in circuits and systems.
