We are currently developing a 6-layer PCB board to be compliant CISPR 22 class A limits with:

- ADUM5010 with 5.8mA@5V

- ADUM5010 with 1mA@3.3V

- ADUM5010 with 0.25mA@3.3V

- ADUM3151 SPI 15MHz 3.3V

- ADUM3151 SPI 500kHz 3.3V

- ADUM7240 / ADUM7643 100kHz 3.3V

 

We have read AN-1109 and AN-0971 and we have actually deduced that:

Layer PCB Emissions:  47dB (125MHz) - 58 dB (250MHz)

Class A Limits : 40 dB (125MHz) - 47 dB (250 MHz)

Required EMI reduction: 7dB (125MHz) - 11 db (250 MHz)

We are assuming that the following EMI reduction design is valid for both

ADUM3151 (10MHz) and ADUM5010:

—————————————————————————————————————

Overlap capacitance:

L = 0.015m

w = 0.010m

Coverlap = 50pF

moreover by introducing interdigitating stitching over 4 layer we have:

Ctot = 50pF x 2 = 100 pF

To meet required EMI reduction we add safety capacitor

C = 100 pF

Finally we have Cstitching = 200 pF with desired EMI reduction according

to AN-0971-Figure 20

Do you agree with this designing approach?

Is it necessary to use also Edge Guarding technique?

Is this EMI reduction configuration valid for both ADUM3151 (10MHz) and ADUM5010?

Have you any suggestion for Minimizing Radiated Emissions from Multiple isoPower Devices in Dense PCB Layouts?

 

Thanks.
