Preface to EMC and Functional Safety of Automotive Electronics PDF


Experience in the automotive industry shows that there are in particular two technical reasons why electronic systems in vehicles do not work as expected: software bugs and electromagnetic interference. Malfunctions are more than a mere annoyance; they can damage cars or other goods, injure people, or kill people.

This book focuses on electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) keeping a close relation to functional safety as required by ISO 26262.

It first introduces functional safety and EMC experts to automotive electronics. Since functional safety is still an emerging field, a primer might be useful to automotive engineers and EMC engineers as well. It then introduces to EMC.

Signal and power integrity are topics that share the same fundamentals as EMC and are also relevant in some cases. In the automotive industry, the V-model is still common to describe a development process.

For this reason, it is necessary to discuss the model and to integrate the safety life cycle and the EMC design flow into the model.

After the lecture, the reader should be able to recognize and avoid hazards, to avoid expensive EMC problems, to simulate and test for EMC compliance of the car and its components, and to fix problems.

It helps to learn automotive EMC and functional safety and will stay a reference book after the lecture.

The book considers all levels from the whole car down to the single electronic control unit (ECU). EMC on integrated circuit level is considered in a few points which are relevant to vehicles.

Additionally, the charging infrastructure for electric cars is considered. I thank Schwarzbeck Mess-Elektronik OHG and ETS Lindgren for the antenna photos and FORCE Technology for the photo of the reverberation chamber.
