The article discusses the strength of electromagnetic-interference-(EMI) radiated signals. It states that in determining the distance from radiating sources required so that the signals do not interfere with a system, the amount of radiated energy and the system's EMI-protection circuitry must be considered. It notes the use of an oscilloscope for observing EMI signals in the time domain and a spectrum analyzer to evaluate such signals in the frequency domain.
