Cedar Park, Texas – October 5, 2009 – Over 150 people attended a technical tour of the ETS-Lindgren facility in Cedar Park, Texas, on Thursday, August 20. The tour, held as part of the 2009 IEEE International Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), attracted engineers, technicians, professors, students, consultants and members of the editorial boards of the leading EMC trade magazines.
Highlights of the guided tours of the ETS-Lindgren facility included the A2LA-accredited antenna and probe calibration labs, a “Texas Size” 80 meter x 50 meter outdoor ground plane, a three meter EMC chamber, a suite of three chambers for wireless testing – the world’s first CTIA-The Wireless Association® Authorized Test Lab (CATL), and three acoustic chambers that comprise the Acoustic Research Laboratory (ARL). The ARL is ISO 17025 accredited under the US Department of Commerce NIST National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) Lab Code 100286-0.
It’s no wonder tour attendees were advised to wear “comfortable walking shoes” as the ETS-Lindgren facility boasts some 145,000 square feet. As the location of the company’s world headquarters, it houses corporate administrative offices, a manufacturing facility for numerous products, and is the center of the company’s research and development efforts. The facility was also recently expanded to provide more space for the company’s growing services division which offers EMC, RF Microwave, Wireless and Acoustic Test and Measurement.
Following the tour, attendees enjoyed legendary Texan hospitality with an informal barbeque dinner buffet, live music for entertainment, and the opportunity to meet the ETS-Lindgren staff present, including Senior Vice-President and General Manager, Bryan Sayler. “We were delighted that so many symposium registrants showed an interest in our tour. It’s not often we get to share our facility with our valued customers and industry luminaries from all over the world. We appreciated this unique opportunity to show how we design, build and test many of the products used in labs around the world today,” said Mr. Sayler.
Judging by the smiles on the faces of the tour attendees and ETS-Lindgren staff, the technical tour was a highlight of the symposium week. As attendees boarded busses for the return ride to downtown Austin, Mr. Sayler thanked everyone for coming and encouraged a return visit in the future.
