EMC of Things: How the IoT Needs Electromagnetic Compatibility


 July 26, 2017: 11:00 AM ET

From standards to testing to spectrum to facilities to all things coexistence, the Internet of Things screams for EMC. The effort to connect to billions of devices to the Internet is well underway and, for many sectors, has already arrived. According to Cisco, globally-connected devices will increase from 16 billion to 26 billion between 2015 and 2020.* This represents an enormous opportunity for EMC engineers of every ilk: from antenna folks to box people to spectrum aficionados to have a spin at the game. The importance of the EMC Society, representing 12 difference Technical Committees—all with a stake in IoT—represents a diverse group of specialists that can play a positive role in the development of IoT.

This presentation will cover some of the aspects of IoT, some of the jargon and scope of the global effort to connect everything to the Net.

EMC touches every part of the physical layer of the Internet of Things, from circuit design to spectrum to propagation and coupling. The EMC community can participate in a broad and comprehensive way to assure that compatibility reaches across the IoT.
