James Young of Rohde & Schwarz

Topic: EMI Measurements using Time Domain (FFT) based test instruments

This session will discuss EMI measurement systems with a focus on comparing and contrasting time domain/FFT based instruments and frequency domain instruments. Discussions around the CISPR committee approach to FFT based testing and how it may impact CISPR-25 type testing in the future will also be covered. Some pros and cons of each method, timing comparisons, accuracy comparisons and overall usability of the results will be addressed. The session will also discuss the Rohde & Schwarz claim of vast speed improvements over previous approaches to EMI tests using this method.

Biography: James Young works as an RF applications engineer and subject matter expert in EMC test and measurement for Rohde & Schwarz. Over the nearly 12 years with Rohde & Schwarz he has had several assignments and positions centered on EMC including product management of the EMC instruments and systems, system design and project management. He has also focused on measurements and performance analysis of LTE, WCDMA and CDMA devices and networks.

His engineering background includes system, circuit, ASIC and FPGA design for various communication products. He has also held product management and marketing positions with Cadence (Tality) in San Jose CA, ParkerVision in Jacksonville FL, and Signal Space Design in Salt Lake City, UT. He holds a BSEET from Weber State University and an MBA from the University of Phoenix.
