Program Overview: 

Advance Program

Practical EMC Measurements

Doug Smith has long been recognized as a foremost authority on the use of probes and of probing techniques for making sensitive measurements in difficult to arrange places. 

 

Learn the simple theory behind easy to use lab tests that can find EMC problems.

Learn to find and evaluate potential EMC problems with readily available lab equipment.

Learn to measure the resonant frequency of physical structures like heat sinks or edge connectors.

Learn to measure EMI currents in systems and recognize when they are a problem.

Learn to relate the easily measurable relative phase of EMI currents to fixing EMC problems.

Doug Smith

Biography

Doug Smith held an FCC First Class Radiotelephone license by age 16 and a General Class amateur radio license at age 12. He received a B.E.E.E. degree from Vanderbilt University in 1969 and an M.S.E.E. degree from the California Institute of Technology in 1970. In 1970, he joined AT&T Bell Laboratories as a Member of Technical Staff. He retired in 1996 as a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff. From February 1996 to April 2000 he was Manager of EMC Development and Test at Auspex Systems in Santa Clara, CA. Mr. Smith currently is an independent consultant specializing in high frequency measurements, circuit/system design and verification, switching power supply noise and specifications, EMC, and immunity to transient noise. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE and a former member of the IEEE EMC Society Board of Directors.

His technical interests include high frequency effects in electronic circuits, including topics such as Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), Electrostatic Discharge (ESD), Electrical Fast Transients (EFT), and other forms of pulsed electromagnetic interference. He also has been involved with FCC Part 68 testing and design, telephone system analog and digital design, IC design, and computer simulation of circuits. He has been granted over 15 patents, several on measurement apparatus.

Mr. Smith has lectured at Oxford University, Vanderbilt University, AT&T Bell Labs, and at many public and private seminars on high frequency measurements, circuit design, ESD, and EMC. He is author of the book High Frequency Measurements and Noise in Electronic Circuits. His very popular website, http://emcesd.com ( www.dsmith.org ), draws many thousands of visitors each month to see over 60 technical articles as well as other features.
