About this event

The trainings will be held in English and take place in the Blue Guide EMC Lab, we're able to host the trainings online if needed.

This is the second training session of the year, the first session (same courses) takes place on 21/04/22, 05/05/22 and 19/05/22. Subscribe here: https://bit.ly/3m0s8Up

Enjoy a 10% discount by following the complete session.


Johan Catrysse is one of the most active European scientists in the field of EMC. He is one of the co-founders of the European EMC conferences, and he is an active member of several standardization and education committees.

You can find a more extensive resume below.


The trainings will begin at 13:30 and generally end at 17:30. We provide a break of half an hour during the training.

Training program

It is a general introductory course based on practice-oriented research. The handouts of the course are made available as course material. You can also expect practical tests during the trainings.

General (22/10/22)

  • The electromagnetic spectrum.
  • Antennas (wire, loop) and the related electric and magnetic field, frequency and wavelength.
  • Spectrum of signals and Fourier Transform (Time/Frequency).
  • EMC: conduction and radiation (with a side step to the standards and test methods).
  • Common Mode/Differential Mode.
  • Introduction to transmission lines.
  • Impedance of a wire.
  • Principles of equipotential.design

PCB level (06/10/22)

  • HF behaviour of components, with a focus on filters and decoupling C's.
  • Placement of decoupling C’s and filters.
  • Ferrites at the PCB level.
  • Impedance controlled design at high bit rates.
  • Crosstalk.
  • Multilayers and the feedthroughs between them.
  • Seperation of systems / signals at the PCB level (with corresponding GND layer).
  • GND layout and interruption/ bridging of the ground planes.
  • Power lines and their filtering (pulsed currents).
  • Ground loops and coupled lines in layout.
  • Board Level Shielding (BLS)

Systems (20/10/22)

  • Coupled wires and routing against chassis (mitigation of CM).
  • Crosstalk and chassis and routing close to chassis.
  • Filters and CM chokes, and correct mounting
  • Pigtails and cable routing between compartments.
  • Introduction to shielding enclosures, with effects of openings (e.g. display), and seals/gaskets
  • Shielding of cables and continuity at the termination connectors.
  • GND noise due to wrong grounding(s).
  • Cable trays and the associated specs versus cables.
  • Separation of systems and signals.
  • Inverters and motors, and the bearing current.
  • Pulsating currents from batteries.
  • CAN bus as an example.
  • ESD and touchscreens.

Resume Johan Catrysse

  • Civil Engineer Electronics, RUGent - 1971. and Ph.D. about shielding testing- 2005
  • Assistant: Laboratory for Electromagnetics, RUGent (Prof. Van Bladel) 1971-1974
  • Professor of electronics, industrial engineer, KHBO from1974 and since 2017: KULeuven campus Brugge, Spoorwegstraat 12, Brugge
  • Founder of the laboratory for EMC and "global reliability" of electronic systems, FMEC (Group M Mechatronics)
  • Author of more than 50 technical and scientific articles in international journals and international conferences.
  • Member of the Belgian National Committee for EMC standardization TC210 (Cenelec) and TC77 (IEC)
  • Retired (Prof. Em.) since 2009, but still "associated academic staff member on assignment" at the FMEC laboratory, KU Leuven, Campus Brugge
