EMP is the primary result of a high-altitude nuclear detonation, though it happens with any nuclear detonation. The higher the blast, the wider the pulse area is and the more electronics are affected, which is why an HA burst is always considered for a nuclear response. Though military facilities are EMP hardened, most civilian areas aren't, and such a burst would severely cripple a country's infrastructure.

An EMP by even a small weapon at high altitude would literally send the U.S. into the Stone Age, as our current technologies are more vulnerable to EMP than in previous years.

An Electromagnetic Pulse is a burst of electromagnetic radiation that results from an explosion (especially a nuclear explosion) or a suddenly fluctuating magnetic field. The resulting electric and magnetic fields may couple with electrical/electronic systems to produce damaging current and voltage surges.
