Most people know ElectroMagnetic Compatibility (EMC) as a technical area of the industry. However, EMC has historical backgrounds. In this post, history of EMC is mentioned.

When EMC started?

Germany was among the first to recognize the need to prevent and solve the problems of radiated emissions. In 1933, the international committee for radiated emissions, better known as CISPR was founded. Late in the 60’s, concrete investigations were made to deal with the immunity of electrical products. In 1973 the International Electrotechnical Commission, the IEC, founded the technical committee TC77 whose function is to develop standards related to EMC.
