SPRING EMC BREAK IN FLORIDA

March 29, 2017

Warm up to EMC. On May 16-18, 2017, in partnership with IN Compliance magazine I will be presenting a three-day public  Electromagnetic Compatibility Engineering Seminar in Cocoa Beach, Florida (Orlando/Melbourne area), including  one-day (5/17/17) of concurrent EMC Exhibits. Includes, by popular request, a session on Pre-Compliance EMC Measurements.

This three-day intensive EMC seminar and exhibit covers the practical aspects of noise and interference control in electronic systems, and provides a working knowledge of EMC principles. Emphasis is on the cost-effective design of analog and digital systems. Commercial, industrial, medical, military, and aerospace aspects of EMC are emphasized. The amount and complexity of mathematics is kept to a minimum, and concepts are illustrated with examples of actual case histories.

Participants will obtain the knowledge necessary to design electronic equipment that is compatible with the electromagnetic environment, and is in compliance with national and international EMC regulations.

Topics covered include:

  • Cabling
  • Grounding Principles
  • Digital Layout and Grounding
  • High-Speed Digital Decoupling
  • Radiated Emission Control, both Common-Mode and Differential-Mode
  • Pre-Compliance EMC Measurements
  • Common-Mode Filters
  • Digital Transmission Lines
  • RF and Transient Immunity
  • Conducted Emission Control, both Common-Mode and Differential-Mode
  • Shielding Principles and Applications
  • Mixed Signal PCB Grounding and Layout

This seminar is directed towards electrical engineers, however, mechanical engineers, reliability and regulatory compliance engineers, technical managers, EMC test personnel, technicians, and others who need a working knowledge of electromagnetic compatibility principles will also benefit from attending.

In addition to the class notes, participants will receive a copy of both my latest 872 page award-winning* book, Electromagnetic Compatibility Engineering, published by John Wiley in 2009, and the Electromagnetic Compatibility EMC Pocket Guide by Ken Wyatt and Randy Jost, published by Scitech in 2013.

* Association of American Publishers “2009 PROSE Award” in the field of Engineering & Technology.

On Wednesday, May 17, 2017, we will welcome a small group of EMC companies who will exhibit their products and services. During breakfast, morning and afternoon breaks, and an extended lunch, course attendees will have time to visit exhibitors’ displays and connect with some of the industry’s top suppliers, including test laboratories, test equipment companies, and EMC component manufacturers. After Wednesday’s technical session, we will all get together at a reception sponsored by the exhibitors for some food, drink, and good EMC comradery.

Comments from a few previous seminar attendees:

  • “I had high expectations for this course, high enough to justify travel from the opposite side of the planet. Henry exceeded them all!”
  • “I learned a lot of what I thought I knew was wrong, and when it was right I learned why it was right.”
  • “EMC demystified! It’s not black magic as many claim.”
  • “Probably the most useful technical seminar I have ever attended. Should have learned this 20 years ago.”
  • “This is the best practical course available.”
  • “An excellent seminar presented by a pragmatic, knowledgeable, entertaining teacher.”
  • “Excellent course! Presented in a very understandable way, even for a mechanical engineer.”
