Dr. Todd Hubing of Clemson University shares his vast expertise regarding the impact of transmission line design on EMC performance of electronic control systems. In automotive systems, the wiring harnesses play a key role in coupling electronic noise to and from the components. Shielding and filtering the wiring harness and connector generally are not viable options, so it is important to address cable coupling issues with proper board-level design practices. This session will cover various cable-coupling mechanisms and grounding strategies. It also will include the options available at the board level for ensuring automotive components don't put excessive noise on the harness and that noise on the harness doesn't affect the proper operation of the component circuitry.
