Electromagnetic interference reduction in printed circuit boards by using metamaterials: a conduction and radiation impact analysis
Rights accessOpen Access
This work aims to compare the implementation of two metamaterials for reducing electromagnetic interference (EMI) in printed circuit boards. Specifically, complementary split-ring resonators (CSRRs) and electromagnetic bandgaps (EBGs) were etched on the ground plane of a microstrip transmission line. Both techniques were compared as EMI filters, taking into account frequency response, signal integrity, and near- and far-field radiation with regard to a reference (solid ground) board. The results of electromagnetic simulations and experimental tests show similar EMI rejection levels in both cases, but CSRRs have a significantly better signal integrity response whereas EBGs behave as lower electromagnetic radiation elements in the operation frequency band.
