An understanding of basic antenna theory is helpful for all engineers, especially those involved in EMC. After all, if a product radiates (or is susceptible to RF energy) it is an antenna, even if you prefer to call it something else – such as a microprocessor, an IC, a PCB, a power cord, or an USB cable.
This presentation is a simple, insightful, and intuitive discussion of how a dipole antenna works, and how the operation is related to the common-mode radiation from a product. Attendees will end up with an understanding of dipole antenna theory, and know why dipole antenna theory is so important to EMC engineering. All of this is accomplished without using mathematics or writing a single equation.
