Abstract : The contents of this report describe a method for assessing electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) of systems which contain microelectronics, i.e. new, complex digital equipments/devices as contracted with typical analog equipments/devices. It provides a basis for defining EMC performance criteria and operation of microelectronic systems and subsystems in an electromagnetic environment. A methodology is established which describes a step-by-step procedure for assessing EMC in microelectronics and for applying the performance criteria. An application of the methodology to a small subsystem is provided to assess the effectiveness of the methodology. There are still many unanswered questions concerning the impact of new microelectronic, integrated circuit, digital, microcircuit technology on EMC. This report represents the first steps taken to determine that impact and to establish a theoretical basis to provide the necessary technology to ensure EMC. (Author)
