The EMI/RFI problems stop here. When you've got an electrical "noise" or interference problem this reference is all you need to diagnose and solve it in a hurry. EMI Troubleshooting Techniques presents an orderly, methodical approach to locating the cause of and correcting

EMI/RFI breakdowns. It gives you hands-on, optimal solutions whether your task is design, lab testing, or on-site troubleshooting, no matter what type of electronic equipment you're handling. Written by veteran EMC designer/troubleshooter Michel Mardiguian, this

efficiency-boosting guide is just what you're looking for in a practical solutions kit—and more. It offers: a solution matrix that helps you pinpoint the right fix quickly; a walk-through chart that simplifies the troubleshooting process; EMI-reduction components categorized by indications, applications, and limitations; practical

alternatives to lab testing methods; consideration of real-life issues such as costs, time constraints, and accessibility; solutions for most electronic environments. Whether the EMI in a car's automatic-locking mechanism, a medical diagnostic tool, or a computer motherboard, and

whether you're developing, prototyping, testing, diagnosing, or applying fixes, there's only one EMI reduction kit virtually guaranteed to help you avoid dead ends and wasted time: EMI Troubleshooting Techniques.
