Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) design consideration is one of the key factors to ensure a system is robust in design, able to operate flawlessly in harsh environments, and does not disturb others in terms of interference. This application note provides design tips on how to use Kinetis L series MCU in applications with EMC requirements. Different techniques in hardware design, PCB layout, and software setting are illustrated here to help customers to apply EMC enhancements on their products at the beginning of the design phase. In general, the fixes of EMC issues in final stage are more complicated, expensive, and time consuming. There are lots of constraints on circuit and PCB layout modifications, some are as follows:
???When all component or module placements are fixed inside the system
???The cost structure is also higher due to additional components used for those corrective actions.
???The impact on project schedule is sometimes uncertain if the solution invokes a major design change on mechanical aspect.
