Practical Overview of MIL-STD-461G

The purpose of MIL-STD-461G is to establish interface and associated verification requirements for the control of the EMI emission and susceptibility characteristics of electronic, electrical, and electromechanical equipment and subsystems. This presentation is a brief overview of the changes in MIL-STD-461G and what practical effect they will have on testing.


The following questions were asked during the live presentation. Click each question to view its answer.

CS118 - how do you perform the voltage verification?

You can use the electrostatic voltmeter to verify the voltage on the ESD gun; also you can use a high voltage probe (1000 to 1) and an oscillosope.

Electrostatic voltmeter is a DC or low frequency, not a high speed measurement

It is a DC speed measurement that measures the potential on the ESD tip.
