Keynote Speaker

Todd Hubing, Ph.D. – President – LearnEMC – “Printed Circuit Board Layout for EMC Compliance”

First-pass compliance with EMC requirements starts with the circuit board layout. Good board layout is not about adhering to design rules or following the advice in application notes. It starts with understanding the board’s test environment, identifying the important coupling paths to and from the board, and ensuring that the allowed coupling is acceptable. This presentation reviews simple steps that should always be followed to design and layout a printed circuit board for first-pass EMC compliance.

Additional Speakers for Track Presentations:
  • Asad Bajwa – Keysight Technology – “Instrument Calibration & EMC Implications”
  • Todd Hubing, Ph.D. – President, LearnEMC – “Terrible EMC Design Advice in Print and on the Internet”

  • Merritt Pulkrabek – Regulatory Compliance Engineer, Approve-IT – “Overlapping EMC Testing to Minimize Test Time and Maximize Global Acceptance” Most products are not marketed in a single country or region.
