Here, the design techniques that are applied to minimize EMI emissions are discussed. Some ideas have been incorporated into designs and some must be implemented by motherboard designers.
Spread Spectrum Clocking (SSC) :
In Spread spectrum clocking the processor clock frequency is changed. Figure below shows the spread spectrum modulation spectrum which decreases radiated emissions over a wider frequency band. Therefore, instead of maintaining a constant system frequency, Spread spectrum clocking modulates the clock frequency. Spread spectrum clocking shows the reduction in peak radiation levels to reduce EMC.
