Industry renowned speaker:

Lee Hill

At

The Canton Summit on the Park

Program Overview: 


Preliminary Agenda
 
1) Ferrites for EMI control in PCBs and cable assemblies
 
This presentation discusses how to distinguish and choose ferrites for optimum noise suppression in a particular application.  Specific topics include Q, bias, resonance, material, and construction. 

 
2) Specialized measurement techniques Part 1
 
Lee will bring a variety of test equipment and components including a spectrum analyzer, oscilloscope, directional couplers, current probes, LISN, etc to demonstrate the characterization of passive RF components such as cables, adapters and antennas.
 
 
3) How to make a PCB a great noise source and fail emissions testing
 
In order to build a noisy but simple PCB for demonstrating EMI measurements, Lee will discuss common EMC design mistakes as well as good design practices based on university EMC design research.  The PCB he designed will be analyzed and demonstrated.
 
 
4) Specialized measurement techniques Part 2
 
Unusual troubleshooting techniques will be demonstrated using the spectrum analyzer, oscilloscope, current probes, and near-field probes. Some of the techniques to be discussed are adaptable to emissions, immunity, and self-interference problem solving

Lee Hill

Biography
 

Lee Hill is Founding Partner of SILENT, an independent electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and RF design firm established in 1992 that specializes in design for EMC, EMC troubleshooting, & RF design and training.  Lee received the Master of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering & Electromagnetics from the University of Missouri-Rolla, now Missouri University of Science & Technology (MST).

 

Lee has over twenty years of experience in the EMC design and retrofit of complex electronic systems.  He has been teaching short courses on EMC design and troubleshooting for fifteen years.  Lee consults and teaches worldwide, and has presented classes in Taiwan, Singapore, Mexico, Norway, Canada, South Korea, France, and United Kingdom.  He is also a regular EMC course instructor for Oxford University (England), Freescale Semiconductor, and General Motors University.  Lee holds a US patent for EMI control in portable electronics, and provides expert witness services for patent litigation.

 

In 1994 he was appointed to serve a two year term as an IEEE EMC Society Distinguished Lecturer and served as chair of the DL Program from 1999-2006.  Lee is a recent member of the IEEE EMC Society Board of Directors (2004-2007), and is a member of Technical Committee TC-10 on Signal Integrity. He currently chairs the EMC Society's Awards Committee.
