Overview of Automotive EMC Standards: CISPR & ISO

Not surprisingly, the automotive industry has numerous electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements it must adhere to. Two of them, the CISPR and ISO standards (organizations that develop and maintain standards for use at the international level), require electronic systems not to emit excessive electromagnetic interference (EMI) or noise, in addition to being immune to emissions from other systems.
