Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) is about the suppression of unwanted electromagnetic interference between electronic devices, systems and components. Increasing demands in the EMC domain – e.g. wireless communication with increasing frequency – require a continuous development of engineering methods to make early, efficient, and cost effective decisions during the development process. In this workshop machine learning methods for EMC-Applications are presented. Own research topics of printed circuit board based power delivery networks (PDNs) are discussed with respect to the application of artificial neural networks. Classifications of PDN impedances against a target impedance are shown in a practical example using jupyter notebooks.
