elcome to 2022 and this year’s edition of In Compliance Magazine’s Annual Reference Guide!

For the past several years, I’ve typically spent the month of January connecting with friends and colleagues and discussing with them the lessons that each of us has learned about ourselves during the past year, as well as the changes that we’ve made to help integrate those insights into our daily lives.

Prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic two years ago, these conversations generally took the approach that most of us follow when it comes to formulating our resolutions for the new year. That is, we’d focus on the things we didn’t do or the mistakes that we made and did not want to repeat in the year ahead and resolve to do better by taking specific actions.

But the world changed for all of us in early 2020. We struggled to deal with the spread and severity of COVID and the accompanying economic uncertainty and upheaval that came with it. And even the lucky ones among us who managed to avoid getting sick and had the economic resources to weather the storm had to adjust to an ever-changing dynamic at home and at work.

Evaluation of EMC Emissions and Ground Techniques on 1- and 2-layer PCBs with Power Converters
Part 10: Complete System – Conducted and Radiated Emissions Results
By Bogdan Adamczyk, Scott Mee, and Nick Koeller
T

his is the 10th and the final article in a series of articles devoted to the design, test, and EMC emissions evaluation of 1- and 2-layer PCBs that contain AC/DC and/or DC/DC converters and employ different ground techniques [1-9]. The goal of this study was to evaluate the impact of different grounding strategies and the tradeoff with other design constraints that designers often face. In this article, we present the conducted and radiated emissions results performed according to the CFR Title 47, Part 15, Subpart B, Class B.

1. Complete System and Board Topologies
Figure 1 shows the top side complete system PCB assembly and its top-level schematic with the functional blocks.

The board is capable of accepting either an AC or DC input. The AC to DC conversion takes part in Partition A of the board (not drawn to scale). The DC to DC converter in Partition B accepts 24V DC input either from the AC/DC converter in Partition A or from an external source [1]. The AC to DC converter is controlled by a Maxim MAX5022 IC, the DC to DC converter is controlled by MAX17783CATB+.

Hot Topics in ESD
Characterization for ESD Design, the TLP Zoo: Part 2
By Robert Ashton for EOS/ESD Association, Inc.
Introduction
This is the second of a two-part series on transmission line pulse (TLP) testing. The first article in the series [1] discussed the motivation for performing TLP testing, introduced the basics of TLP and presented the most popular form of TLP testing, time domain reflection TLP. If you are new to TLP testing, that article would be an excellent introduction. This article will present alternative TLP configurations which can improve the quality of TLP data or capture additional information. Also covered will be two extensions to TLP testing for performing charged device model (CDM) testing. Traditional field inducted CDM testing suffers from poor reproducibility at low voltage due to variable air discharge spark resistance, which is eliminated in the proposed methods. The article will conclude with some additional resources for TLP testing provided by the Electrostatic Discharge Association (ESDA).
Kelvin TLP

Variable contact resistance in time domain reflection TLP, especially in wafer-level measurements, can introduce significant noise into voltage data. This is compounded in vf-TLP when two large voltages need to be subtracted to get the device under test (DUT) voltage. These issues can be reduced significantly using Kelvin TLP. In Kelvin TLP, the voltage is measured with voltage taps right at the DUT. For waferlevel measurements, this requires a separate set of RF probes with appropriate sense resistors. Kelvin measurements can be used for either 100 ns or vf-TLP. For 100 ns TLP a current probe is needed to determine the pulse current. For vf-TLP, a separate voltage pickoff Tee is often used to measure the separated incident and reflected voltage to calculate the stress current. In addition to reducing voltage noise, Kelvin TLP gives a direct measurement of the voltage versus time characteristics of the DUT without the uncertainty introduced by time-shifting the incident and reflected voltage pulses.

EMC Design Techniques for Electric Vehicle Powertrain Modules
State-of-the-Art EMC Designs to Consider Before Your Next Module Project
By Dr. Min Zhang
EMC Design Techniques for Electric Vehicle Powertrain Modules
W

hen helping clients in the electric vehicle (EV) industry with their module design, I often find that engineers tend to follow an out-of-date list of do’s and don’ts in the form of EMC design rules without understanding the basics. These kinds of design rules are often borrowed from other industries, and they are not up to date with the latest technology involved in the fast-paced EV industry.

In this article, using a powertrain module as an example, I will first introduce the high voltage EMC regulations with which a powertrain module needs to comply. I will then highlight the risks and challenges when designing such modules. The main part of this article will share design techniques that engineers can apply on various parts of a powertrain module, including ground, front-end filter, inverter design, and so on. Examples are given to demonstrate some of the key design techniques.

It should be noted that the introduced design techniques in this article share the same principles as any other EMC engineering. Therefore, engineers from other industries can also benefit from these techniques.

Expected Service Life of Medical Electrical Equipment
Clarifying Confusion Around Life Definitions
By Steli Loznen
Recycle bin
T

he main purpose of mandatory regulations is to obtain marketing authorization to enter global markets. Consequently, a manufacturer must demonstrate that all safety-related aspects, including compliance with relevant standards for basic safety, essential performance, risk management, usability, etc., have been reviewed, that all applicable requirements have been met, and that a quality system mechanism has been implemented.

With regard to medical devices included within the field of the medical electrical equipment (MEE), it is striking to observe how the clauses describing these specific concepts vary among applicable EU Directives, guidelines, regulations, IEC, ISO standards, and other requirements applicable to design, regulatory compliance, marketing, and health professionals.

Moreover, the concept of expected service life (ESL) for MEE comes on top of the already existing standards. Thus, due to an incomplete definition of ESL, there is a long chain of misunderstandings regarding the analysis and assessment required to determine compliance with MEE requirements.

System-Level Grounding
Is Your System Well Grounded? Consider These Points in Effective Grounding
By Vladimir Kraz
System-Level Grounding: Is Your System Well Grounded? Consider These Points in Effective Grounding
G

rounding is the most fundamental property of all types of electrical equipment. There are plenty of quality articles on specific subjects in In Compliance Magazine and in other publications, largely on grounding on a printed circuit board (PCB) level. This article focuses on a path less traveled, grounding on a system level, that is grounding of the equipment in actual use at the factories.

There are several key aspects of grounding, including safety, electrostatic discharge (ESD), electromagnetic interference (EMI), and signal integrity. While this and other magazines have published detailed articles on one or more of these subjects, this article combines them all to assist equipment users and tool makers in understanding what is important and how to achieve optimal ground performance. This article does not cover PCB grounding (there are plenty of excellent articles on this subject) and portable tools with double insulation that do not have grounding.

Assessing Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) in Vehicles
Testing Can Help to Ensure Effectiveness and Safety
By Ralph Buckingham
Assessing Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) in Vehicles
T

he National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that 94% of traffic accidents are caused by driver error and the leading cause of these is recognition mistakes.1 Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) can help decrease accidents, injuries, and fatalities by reducing these errors using electronic technologies. In fact, ADAS is one of the fastest-growing sectors in the automotive industry, with expectations that the ADAS market will see a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.6% by 2027.2

ADAS are designed to increase the safety of vehicles by assisting motorists with driving and parking functions. They use automated technology, such as sensors, cameras, software, lighting, and audio components to detect obstacles and errors, then respond accordingly. ADAS technologies can range from passive to active, alerting drivers to problems, implementing safeguards, and/or taking control of the vehicle.

MIL-STD-464D: A Review of Recent Changes
A Long-Awaited Update to an Essential Standard for Military Procurement
By Ken Javor
MIL-STD-464D: A Review of Recent Changes
M

IL-STD-464D was released on December 24, 2020. This revision is in keeping with the routine five-year revision cycle applicable to many such standards, and MIL-STD-464 must keep in sync with MIL-HDBK-235, from which the electromagnetic field intensity tables are drawn. In this case, the routine five-year cycle took ten years to complete.

MIL-STD-464 is the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) top-level E3 requirement set for the procurement of complete or modified systems. In this context, systems means an integrated platform of one type or another, such as a ground or air vehicle, a ship or submarine, a spacecraft, or launch vehicle. Note that some systems can be parts of other systems, such as an F-18 fighter aircraft that operates from an aircraft carrier.

The original release of MIL-STD-464 was in 1997. MIL-STD-464A (2002) and MIL-STD-464C (2010) provided minor, evolutionary changes to the original release.1

Compared to MIL-STD-464C, the changes in MIL-STD-464D are very minor. This article serves as a laundry list of the substantive changes, including the EME tables, and indications of what values changed in the EME tables, so that the reader may see at a glance where the changes are, rather than checking each table row-by-row and cell-by-cell.

The purpose of this article is to inform and save the reader the time the author spent combing through MIL-STD-464D vs. MIL-STD-464C (referenced as D and C throughout the rest of this article). Entertaining the reader was not a practical goal.

Application of Thrifty Test Equipment for EMC Testing
Low-Cost Instruments and Procedures to Troubleshoot EMC Issues
By Arnold Nielsen
money sign with electrical battery lines attached
I

ssues related to electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) are often identified during qualification testing in an accredited EMC test lab which typically occurs late in the product design cycle. Obtaining a cost-effective solution to these EMC issues may be time-consuming, and many EMC labs can be fully booked or have limited availability, have long lead times, or involve significant costs. But inexpensive test equipment and procedures (let’s call them thrifty methods) used for helping to solve these EMC issues outside an EMC lab are very desirable, especially if no in-house EMC facilities are readily available.

There are several excellent resources for troubleshooting methods and building a low-cost EMC toolkit.1 This article offers some other test equipment options that have different capabilities and which can be even less costly. Although the thrifty method is mainly used to compare results before and after implementing a fix (not meeting a specification limit), with some experience, it can also be used in the pre-qualification development stage early in the design cycle to identify potential issues before formal lab testing. Identifying issues early allows maximum flexibility to experiment and provides sufficient time to make cost‑effective changes before a design is frozen and difficult to change.

SCIF and Radio Frequency Secured Facility Design
An RF Shielding Design Guide to Navigating ICS/ICD 705 and NSA 94-106 Requirements
By Joel Kellogg
SCIF and Radio Frequency Secured Facility Design
I

n recent years, we’ve noticed a growing confusion in the industry over sensitive compartmented information facilities (SCIF) design and performance requirements. Part 1 of this article is intended to bring some clarity to various documents and performance requirements from a radiofrequency (RF) shielding perspective to aid in the design and construction of these facilities.

Introduction to SCIF Specifications

The two most referenced documents for SCIF design are ICD/ICS-705 Technical Specification for Construction and Management of Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities.[1] and NSA 94-106 [2]. It has been our experience that these documents are often referenced interchangeably or in conjunction with each other.

In some cases, project documents will indicate that a facility has been designed to meet NSA 94-106 as identified in ICD/ICS-705. This is problematic as ICD/ICS-705 does not reference NSA 94-106, nor is ICD/ICS-705 intended to meet the requirements set forth in NSA 94-106. This article will analyze the purpose of ICD/ICS-705 and NSA 94-106 as it pertains to RF shielding and highlight some of the differences between the two standards.

Cellular Approvals and RCM Certification in Australia
By Shaun Reid and Shabbir Ahmed
network graphic of the Australian continent
I

n Australia, all electrical and electronics devices, including cellular modules, need to comply with the requirements of the Regulatory Compliance Mark (RCM). The RCM is of two parts jointly owned by the Australian Communications Media Authority (ACMA) and the Electrical Regulatory Authorities Council (ERAC). Cellular approvals are technically complex and involve all aspects of the ACMA regulations and the ERAC Electrical Equipment Safety System (EESS) RCM certification process.

ACMA RCM Requirements
Most recently amended in 2018, the ACMA’s standard TLN: Telecommunications (Labelling Notice for Customer Equipment and Customer Cabling) Instrument 2015 mandates that cellular devices intended for connection to the public mobile telecommunications service (PMTS) must comply with Telecommunications (Mobile Equipment Air Interface) Technical Standard 2018, which in turn references AS/CA S042.1, Requirements for Connection to an Air Interface of a Telecommunications Network – Part 1: General.

The Achilles Heel of ESD Floors
Standard ESD Resistance Tests Do Not Fully Evaluate a Floor’s Suitability for Grounding Carts, Chairs, and Mobile Workstations
By David Long
the legs and wheels of a rolling chair
W

hat’s the purpose of installing an ESD floor? The most common answer to this question is “We need ESD flooring to prevent static charges on mobile personnel when they handle static sensitive parts and systems.” In other words, we need the effectiveness of a wrist strap, but we don’t want to deal with the restrictions of wires and cords.

While this answer highlights a key attribute of a properly functioning ESD floor, it sets the bar very low. It also short sells the many advantages an ESD floor actually offers. Like every other static mitigation component, ESD flooring is only one piece of a larger comprehensive system that keeps all parts, machines, tools, packaging, work surfaces, and personnel at the same potential.

When floors are evaluated, specifiers focus on two main performance parameters: 1) the flooring system’s electrical resistance; and 2) how much charge a person can develop when walking on the floor wearing specific footwear. But what about the parts themselves? How do we protect them?

Troubleshooting EMC Problems Like an MD
First-Hand Lessons From Three Medical Professionals

ver ponder how a physician troubleshoots medical issues in their patients? Neither did I until a consulting client pointed out I was following a medical methodology known as differential diagnosis.

Intrigued by the comment, which led me to further investigate how doctors work to fix patients, just like we work to fix EMC problems.

But first, a little background…

Early in my EMC consulting career, a client asked me to explain each step as we worked to improve ESD immunity on an existing product. In addition to solving the problem, he wanted to better understand my thinking process. Fair enough, I thought.

Applying ISO 26262 to Power Management in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems
Understanding the Tools and Methods Used to Develop Functionally Safe Power Systems for ADAS Applications
By Christopher Semanson

O

ver the last decade, automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) like Ford, GM, and Tesla have been at the forefront of mobility and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), jockeying for a leadership position in this hotly contested, quickly developing field. As these systems advance, with them comes an increase in the number of semiconductor components in the vehicle to support devices like cameras, radars, and modules used to make decisions based on their information.

This has provided an opportunity for semiconductor manufacturers to increase their market share, allowing them to pivot from their traditional base microcontroller (MCU) offerings to highly integrated system on chip (SoC) processors, memory, and power devices. However, as the industry evolves, the question remains for both consumers and OEMs alike, “How can we standardize the development and design of these components across the industry, such that we can satisfy the risk that comes along with these components, while confidently claiming the part functionally safe?”

Controlling Static Electricity: A 50‑Year History

The Recognition and Control of Static Electricity Today Has Benefitted From a Continuously Evolving Approach

By David E. Swenson, John Kinnear, and the ESDA
Controlling Static Electricity
I

t is well understood that static electricity has been with us forever. Our awareness of problems associated with static electricity probably originated with the invention of gun powder when, no doubt, there were some mysterious ignitions that took place during chemical blending operations that could not be explained at the time.

The manifestation of static electricity problems in an industrial setting likely began with Gutenberg’s invention of the automatic printing press in 1440.1 Paper and velum (two different materials) sticking together had to be an issue. Somewhere along the line, it was likely observed that a fire burning in the vicinity of the printing press could magically make the paper less sticky. Flame treatment was used in industrial printing presses back then and in newspaper printing presses well into the 1950s, and perhaps even longer in some areas.

Protection of High Voltage Power Substation Control Electronics from HEMP and IEMI
An Approach Using EMC Standards
By Dr. William A. Radasky
High Voltage Power
T

his article describes an approach for hardening high‑voltage power substation control electronics from high‑altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) that would occur if a nuclear weapon were detonated in space. While we hope that this type of electromagnetic event never occurs, it is a possibility, and the impact on unprotected electronics and the power grids that they control could be severe. In the case of HEMP, a single high‑altitude nuclear burst could expose thousands of power substations to high‑frequency transients within one power cycle, creating essentially a simultaneous distributed event for which the power grid was not designed.

While the emphasis for this article will be on the protection from early‑time (E1) HEMP, it will also discuss the additional efforts that can be made to protect the electronics from intentional electromagnetic interference (IEMI) produced by electromagnetic weapons. By considering both the E1 HEMP and IEMI together, we cover the main high frequency transient high‑power EM (HPEM) threats that have become important in recent years.

The EU Conflict Minerals Regulation
Implications for the Electronics Sector
By Alex Martin
The EU Conflict Minerals Regulation
O

ver the last 10-15 years, supply chain management has increasingly entailed addressing environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues alongside the likes of quality, cost, service, and delivery. This has been experienced in the electronics industry, but equally the likes of the textiles and apparel, jewelry, automotive, and aerospace and defense sectors. Corporate practices have changed in light of campaigning by political activists and non-governmental organizations, as has legislation and/or government-backed voluntary initiatives.

For those involved in the manufacture, distribution, and sale of electrical and electronic equipment, understanding conflict minerals – metals and minerals derived under duress and traded to keep armed groups funded – is likely best cast in terms of the wider identification, assessment, and management of ESG risks in supply chains (other risks might include, for example, child and forced labor, corruption and bribery, environmental pollution, etc.). While existing legislation may not apply to your business today, it might tomorrow.

How Grounds Affect the Peak Voltage Due to Lightning
Why the Most Common Characterization of a Ground Rod May Not Work for Lightning
By Albert R. Martin
Lightning
I

n 1997, an experiment at the Camp Blanding center for lightning testing [1] challenged the predominant view that ground rods are essentially resistive. What that experiment found was that the waveshapes of lightning currents in a building grounding system and those entering the electrical circuits of the building were considerably different. That was at odds with IEC 61312-1:1995 [2] assertions that they should be the same. The conclusion was that, for lightning, the ground rod had an impedance with a reactive component in addition to the resistive one.

So how do we take into account the impedance effects for lightning? Well, it turns out not to be so simple. Professor Leonid Grcev, who with his students has conducted extensive studies of grounds, has found that a simple modeling of a ground rod as an R-L-C circuit doesn’t give correct results, due to surge propagation effects which cause a deviation from the low frequency behavior during the fast-transient period. So the challenge is to determine what this deviation is.
