Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) has become a major concern for integrated circuits (ICs), which is still not perfectly understood by electronic designers. Electromagnetic emission and immunity issues need to be thoroughly understood by professionals to successfully design their ICs, packages or printed circuit boards (PCB). Modelling constitutes a powerful way of analysing the root cause of EMC problems, predicting EMC performance or validating a design to mitigate an EMC problem before fabrication.

This book is dedicated to undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate students and engineers in electronic design who want to learn more about EMC at IC level. The content of the book covers the basic notions for learning how to model circuits and their surrounding environment (PCB) with respect to emission, immunity and signal integrity issues. This book is accompagnied by the freeware IC-EMC to illustrate theoretical concepts as well as practical case studies. The book also provides a series of exercises.


Alexandre Boyer and Étienne Sicard are professors in Electronics at INSA de Toulouse. Their researches deal with EMC of ICs. They are members of Laboratoire d’Analyse et Architecture des Systèmes (LAAS-CNRS) and Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse (IRITCNRS) respectively.
