ETS-Lindgren Announces Technical Contributions to EMC+SIPI 2018

Automotive EMC, 5G Wireless, Calibration, and Standards Updates to be Presented at Leading IEEE Symposium


CEDAR PARK, Texas, May 24, 2018 - ETS-Lindgren announced its technical contributions to the 2018 IEEE Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) and Signal/Power Integrity (SIPI) in Long Beach, California.  Symposium dates are July 30 to August 3 at the Long Beach Convention Center. The contributions include presentations in four tutorials and one short course as well as hardware and software demonstrations.

The tutorials start the morning of Monday, July 30 with ETS-Lindgren's Zhong Chen presenting in the tutorial, "Advances in Antenna Calibration and Measurements for EMC Applications."  Mr. Chen will discuss time domain measurement techniques to remove close-by objects for antenna calibrations.  On Monday afternoon, ETS-Lindgren's Jari Vikstedt will present in the tutorial, "EMC Design and Test of Modern Wireless devices."  Mr. Vikstedt will discuss the 5G New Radio (NR) with its implications for EMC and antenna testing. 

On Wednesday afternoon, August 1, ETS-Lindgren's Garth D'Abreu will present in the tutorial, "Automotive EMC Future Standards Updates and New Design/Test Methodologies".  Mr. D'Abreu will discuss meeting the need for Hardware-in-Loop (HIL) type enhanced EMC full vehicle measurements.  He will also present that afternoon on reverb chamber test challenges in the "Applications of Reverb Chambers" tutorial.


The tutorials conclude on Friday morning, August 3 with ETS-Lindgren's Doug Kramer presenting in the tutorial "Global EMC Standards Update: Test Site Validation, Instrumentation and RF Absorber."   Mr. Kramer will discuss the latest updates on the antenna calibration standards ANSI C63.5:2017 and CISPR 16-1-6:2017.   Also presenting in this tutorial is Zhong Chen, Chair of the IEEE 1128 Standard Working Group and Chair of ANSI C63 Subcommittee 1, who will discuss the current revision to IEEE 1128 (RF Absorber Evaluation in the Range of 30 MHz to 5 GHz) as well as provide an update on draft standard ANSI C63.25 (Validation Methods for Radiated Emission Test Sites) which is expected to be published by December 2018.    Mr. Chen is also presenting as an invited speaker in the "Fundamentals of EMI/EMC" tutorial.  He will provide an overview on antennas used for EMC measurements.

For complete tutorial details, please see the advance program on the symposium website for the dates of July 30, August 1 and 3.  ALL tutorials noted above will be featured as part of the technical content in the EMC+SIPI 2018 Online Symposium.

NEW this year at the IEEE EMC+SIPI Symposium is a short course with Professor Constantine Balanis of Arizona State University.  Professor Balanis is the renowned author of many antenna books, including Antenna Theory: Analysis and Design. One of the invited lecturers in this short course titled, "Antennas: The Structural Elements of EMC", is ETS-Lindgren's Zhong Chen.  Mr. Chen will discuss advanced antenna measurement techniques using time domain transformation.  Click here for more information on this special short course.

In addition to the ETS-Lindgren engineers presenting in the six tutorials and short course noted above, Jari Vikstedt, Garth D'Abreu and Michael Christopher will also present as part of the symposium's popular experiments and demonstrations program held in the exhibit hall.  (Dates and times are yet to be announced.)  Mr. Vikstedt will present "5G Performance Measurements", Mr. D'Abreu will present "RADAR Module Simulator Demonstration" and Mr. Christopher will present "Incorporating Equipment under Test (EUT) Monitoring within Immunity Testing".  Mr. Christopher will also participate in the annual TILE! Users Group (TUG) meeting on Wednesday morning, August 1.   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 - and VisionTRX, a visual monitoring system that redefines automated failure based analysis of equipment under test during EMC and many other testing scenarios.

On special events during the symposium, ETS-Lindgren will support at the ANSI C63 wireless workshops on ANSI C63.10 and ANSI C63.26 scheduled for Saturday, July 28 at Element Materials Technology in nearby Irvine.  For more information on the ANSI C63 workshop, click here.   

Representatives of ETS-Lindgren's ETS-U will be on-hand during the symposium exhibition to discuss upcoming educational courses on Wireless Over-The-Air (OTA) (August 7-9), TILE!  (October 16-17), and EMC Fundamentals (November 13-15).  These unique courses feature classroom study supplemented with hands-on lab sessions.  ETS-Lindgren's facilities include an A2LA accredited calibration lab, CTIA approved test lab (CATL), and NVLAP accredited acoustic lab (NVLAP lab code 100286-0). 

Please visit ETS-Lindgren in Booth 311 at the symposium exhibition to learn more about these exciting courses and see a TILE! and 5G demonstration.  For more information on the 2018 IEEE Symposium on EMC and SI/PI, visit
