This chapter is concerned primarily with EMC testing; the higher level aspects of product or system design to meet EMC requirements have been discussed in some detail so that the reader can appreciate the nature of the overall EMC design task. This clearly involves more than specifying a mains filter connector, fitting a few chip capacitors on a PC board, or spraying the inside of the plastic equipment case with metal. It is not the intention to detail all the techniques mentioned for achieving good EMC or to give the basic formulas that would be needed to enable a design.
