Automotive EMC, Wireless, Measurement Uncertainty, Calibration, Reverb Chamber, Field Sensors/Probes and Test Lab Software to be Presented at Leading EMC Symposium
CEDAR PARK, Texas, May 14, 2016 - ETS-Lindgren announced its technical contributions to the 2016 IEEE International Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) and Signal Integrity (SI) in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Symposium dates are July 25-29 at the Shaw Centre. The contributions include presentations in four tutorials, an EMC test lab software demonstration, an ETSI hardware demonstration, and a time domain hardware demonstration.
The tutorials start the morning of Monday, July 25 with ETS-Lindgren’s Zhong Chen presenting in the tutorial, “Measurement Uncertainty – Challenges and Solutions.” Mr. Chen will discuss a measurement model based uncertainty analysis for antenna calibrations. Also on Monday morning, Garth D’Abreu of ETS-Lindgren will present in the tutorial, “Application of Reverberation Chambers.” He will present new research on DO160G chamber calibration and test findings. On Monday afternoon, July 25, Mr. D’Abreu will present in the tutorial, “Automotive EMC – Future Standards Updates and New Test Methodologies.” Here he will discuss EMC test chamber design for vehicle and electronic sub-assemblies (ESA) testing.
The tutorials on Friday, July 29 include the morning tutorial, “Testing of Wireless Devices in the Modern World: Addressing Current and Future Performance Expectations.” ETS-Lindgren’s Jari Vikstedt will discuss Over-the-Air (OTA) testing challenges of 60 GHz WiGig devices. That afternoon, ETS-Lindgren’s Zhong Chen and Vic Hudson will present in the tutorial, “Calibration of EMC Measurement Instrumentation.” Mr. Chen will discuss the calibration of field probes for EMC measurements in accordance with IEEE Standard 1309. Mr. Hudson will discuss calibration of the uniform field per 61000-4-3 for field uniformity above 1 GHz.
For complete tutorial details, please see the advance program on the symposium website for the dates of July 25 and July 29.
In addition to the ETS-Lindgren engineers presenting in the four tutorials noted above, Joe Tannehill, Zhong Chen and Vic Hudson will also present as part of the symposium’s popular experiments and demonstrations program held in the exhibit hall. (Dates and times are yet to be announced.) Mr. Hudson will present “ETSI EN 300 328 V1.8.2 and ETSI EN 301 893 V1.7.2 - Clarified Requirements and Synchronized Power Sensors”; Mr. Chen will present “Time Domain Site VSWR Measurements”; Mr. Tannehill will present “Using Simulated EMC Instruments to Develop, Edit, and Validate EMC Test Routines”. Mr. Tannehill will also lead the annual TILE! Users Group (TUG) meeting on Wednesday morning, July 27. The TUG meeting is open to existing users and others interested in learning more about the latest version of TILE! – the popular EMC lab management software.

On special events during the symposium, ETS-Lindgren will provide a speaker at the ANSI C63 workshops scheduled for July 22-23 at Flextronics in Ottawa, near the Shaw Centre. Zhong Chen will present in the workshop on draft standard ANSI C63.25 on time domain measurements for site validation. A live demonstration of this efficient measurement technique in the Flextronics ten-meter chamber will complement his presentation.

Representatives of ETS-Lindgren’s ETS-U will be on-hand to discuss upcoming educational courses on TILE! (October 4-5), Wireless Over-The-Air (OTA) (September 13-15) and EMC Fundamentals (November 15-17). These unique courses feature classroom study supplemented with hands-on lab sessions. ETS-Lindgren’s facilities include an A2LA accredited calibration lab, CTIA approved test lab (CATL), and NVLAP accredited acoustic lab.
Please visit ETS-Lindgren in Booth 600 at the symposium exhibition to learn more about these exciting courses and see a TILE! demonstration. For more information on the 2016 IEEE International Symposium on EMC and SI, visit emc2016usa.emcss.org.
