ETS-Lindgren Announces Technical Contributions to EMC 2015

CEDAR PARK, Texas, February 5, 2015 - ETS-Lindgren announced its technical contributions to the 2015 IEEE Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) and Signal Integrity (SI) in Santa Clara, California. Symposium dates are March 16-20 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. 

The contributions include presentations in four tutorials, an EMC test lab software demonstration, an ETSI hardware demonstration, and a technical tour of the Wireless Test Lab at 7Layers.

The tutorials start the morning of Monday, March 16 with ETS-Lindgrens Zhong Chen presenting in the tutorial, Calibration of EMC Test Facilities and Measurement Instrumentation. Mr. Chen will discuss calibration of field products for EMC measurements in accordance with IEEE Standard 1309. Martin Wiles of ETS-Lindgrens UK office will also present antenna calibration and site validation for radiated emissions above 1 GHz per the CISPR 16-1-4/-5/and -6 standards. 

Monday morning, Garth DAbreu of ETS-Lindgren will present in the tutorial Application of Reverberation Chambers. He will discuss optimizing reverb chamber design for DO 160 Cat G and L applications. Mr. DAbreu will also speak in the tutorial, Testing of Wireless Devices in the Modern World on Monday afternoon. His presentation will review Radiated Spurious Emissions (RSE) testing of wireless devices. ETS-Lindgrens Jack McFadden will also share his expertise in this tutorial on the new ETSI 300 328 conducted testing standard.

On Wednesday morning, March 18, Zhong Chen of ETS-Lindgren will chair and present in the tutorial, Time Domain Emission Measurements and Modeling. Mr. Chens presentation will discuss time domain measurements to verify the modeling of this measurement technique. He will also provide an update on the latest work for the draft version of ANSI Standard C63.25: Validation Method for EMC Radiated Emission Test Sites which includes time domain measurements.

For complete tutorial details, please see the advance program on the symposium website for the dates of March 16 and 18.In addition to the ETS-Lindgren engineers presenting in the four tutorials noted above, Jack McFadden and Joe Tannehill will present on Tuesday, March 17 as part of the symposiums popular experiments and demonstrations program held in the exhibit hall. Mr. McFadden will present ETSI EN 300 328 V1.8.2 and ETSI EN 301 893 V1.7.2 - Clarified Requirements and Synchronized Power Sensors; Mr. Tannehill will present Using Simulated EMC Instruments to Develop, Edit, and Validate EMC Test Routines. Mr. Tannehill will also lead the annual TILE! Users Group (TUG) meeting on Wednesday morning, March 18. 

The TUG meeting is open to existing users and others interested in learning more about the latest version of TILE! the popular EMC lab management software. To register to attend the TUG meeting, click here.

On special events at the symposium, ETS-Lindgren will sponsor a tour of the anechoic and reverb wireless test chambers at 7Layers in Sunnyvale on Thursday evening, March 19. Attendees will witness live demonstrations on emerging wireless topics such as near-field automotive and body wearables. Free transportation and buffet provided. Space is limited; register to attend

Representatives of ETS-Lindgrens ETS-U will be on-hand to discuss upcoming educational courses on EMC Fundamentals(March 24-26), Wireless Over-The-Air (OTA) (April 22-24) and MIL-STD-461F/EMC Fundamentals (June 15-19). These unique courses feature classroom study supplemented with hands-on lab sessions. ETS-Lindgrens facilities include an A2LA accredited calibration lab, CTIA approved test lab (CATL), and NVLAP accredited acoustic lab.Please visit ETS-Lindgren in Booth 402 at the symposium exhibition to learn more about these exciting courses and see a TILE! demonstration.
