"Ahh but what caused the power surge?". The switch from external to internal power.  See http://www.warbirdsnews.com/warbird-articles/important-planes-navy-carriers-fly.html

Normally, the switch-over didn't cause a problem, because of an isolation switch on the rocket pod, secured by a pin. IIRC, the "Remove Before Flight" tag had  been fluttering in high winds, and pulled the pin loose. As often happens, one safety mechanism thwarted another.

I wouldn't classify it as an EMC incident; it was more an electrical power management issue. (And a reminder not to point loaded weapons at anything you don't want to destroy.)

"The Forrestal incident  was caused by a power surge in the aircraft"

Ahh but what caused the power surge? Even so, it's still an EMC issue.

Thanks for the historical corrections. If you watch the video, you'll see that Ott mentioned the EMC Directive as being implemented in 1986. It was actually 1996. His slides were correct.

Thanks for the correction of 81 MHz. I typed the post on my phone.

HMS Sheffield was hit by an Exocet missile fired by an aircraft, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUZu8bvxJs4  not a torpedo from a ship. The article is correct that it was the motor that set fire to the superstructure. (That wasn't the only time an Exocet failed to explode on impact. http://www.nytimes.com/1984/06/26/world/iraqi-exocet-hit-tanker-but-failed.html  )

The Forrestal incident  was caused by a power surge in the aircraft that wasn't related to the ship's radar. http://secondsfromdisaster.net/s03e08-aircraft-carrier-explosion-uss-forrestal-fire/

Martin: I take it you meant to say: "The third harmonic, 81 MHz" ??

CB story

As promised, here's my CB radio story. CB radio broadcast on 27MHz. Commercial TV analog ch 2 was 54-60 MHz the second harmonic. The third harmonic, 81 MHz, was analog ch 5. CB interfered but it was far worse on ch 2. In NYC where I started, ch 2 is CBS. Here in Boston, ch 2 is PBS. So it was a bigger deal in NYC. After we moved, we discovered that if you keyed your mic in your car CB while driving past a local furniture store, the store's alarm would sound.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
