The article discusses the significance of applying electromagnetic interference (EMI) application on the development of various electronic equipment. All finished products passes through the approval of the Federal Communications Commission to ensure quality standard products. The EMI plays a significant role among product designers to assure that radio frequency is in accordance with the system of the designed product. It was shown that printed circuit board EMI contributes to a standard control system with reduced differential mode radiation and common mode radiation. The application of EMI electrical design rule checks also contributes to the product's manufacturing process in identifying EMI problems.
