Common EMI Design Flaws & Fixes When Designing an Interconnect Solution for Medical Devices
EMI, or electromagnetic interference, is a branch of EMC, which stands for electromagnetic compatibility. EMI refers to the study and mitigation of interference noise signals from impacting the desired circuit, in both receiving (immunity) and transmitting (emissions). In the medical world, creating sufficient signal noise barriers is imperative to the functionality of the device, and ultimately, the patient’s health. A ‘good’ shield can be thought of as a full 360° enclosure surrounding the protected devices. A ‘360°’ shield is a fully terminated electrical termination surrounding the entire desired device connecting the shielding to chassis.
