Today, engineers need reliable information fast, and to ensure compliance with regulations for electromagnetic compatibility in the most economical way later in the design, appropriate measures must be taken early in the design phase.

This paper provides a brief introduction to embedded EMI debugging / troubleshooting challenges and how to use a digital oscilloscope to debug the two key culprits of EMI – switching power supplies and power amplifiers.
