The Southeastern Michigan IEEE EMC Society Chapter

 Proudly Presents a Free

"Basic Antenna & Probe Use in EMC Workshop"

This FREE workshop will consist of a five part technical seminar. The goal of the seminar presentations is to provide practical information for the EMC engineer, designer or technician to actually use on the job! Demonstrations of the material presented will be conducted. Participants can informally meet with the speakers and view these hands on demonstrations that are designed to "drive home" the material presented. Sponsored by the Southeastern Michigan EMC Chapter

Antenna and Probe Fundamentals provides an introduction to antenna and probe theory and application relevant to EMC. This workshop covers fundamental principles of operation for various common antenna and field probe configurations covering the frequency spectrum associated with EMC testing. The essential descriptive characteristics of antennas and probes are defined. The nature of radiation and coupling for various types of antennas is described and illustrated including consideration of near field and far field effects. The use of antennas in EMC testing is covered including comparison of reverberant, anechoic, and open air testing. The implications of the antenna characteristics on EMC testing are discussed including the nature and use of antenna factors, gain, radiation resistance, VSWR, etc. Processing and interpretation of antenna signals by receivers and analyzers is discussed including discussion of signal type, signal bandwidth and filtering of signals. The use of soft ferrites in conjunction with antennas in EMC testing is covered. Unintentional radiators/receptors will also be discussed. 

This workshop has been given at three of the past IEEE EMC symposiums to standing room only crowds.

Key Words: Beginners in EMC, fundamentals of antennas and probes used in EMC testing.
