New White Paper – Using C-Type and Pi-Type EMI Filters for MIL-STD 461G, CS116 Compliance

We have posted a brand-new Technical White Paper, which can be found in our Resources Section.

This White Paper covers some basic information about how C-Type and Pi filters can be useful in providing protection against MIL-STD 461G, CS116 transient requirements.  The relevant transient injection requirements involve high-energy 1, 10, and 30MHz ring waves being applied to DC and AC power lines (or other conductors) and the DUT and Equipment being protected should survive with no damage.

Example Test Setup – MIL-STD 461G, CS116

EMI Filter Capacitors can provide excellent protection against this type of threat, and when properly integrated into an overall EMI/Transient-compliant design (with Limiting or other Filtering components) they should allow for full compliance to CS116 requirements.
