Outreach Courses


Participants will have a thorough understanding of the operation of a reverberation chamber for EMC testing. They will have developed a test plan for an immunity test with specified conditions and objectives. They will also have a permanent record of data collected and analyzed, and an extensive set of notes.


This comprehensive workshop will provide an awareness of all aspects of systems and aircraft HIRF testing as a route to compliance and will include: Why HIRF is important, The FAA/European requirements to demonstrate compliance — FAA/EASA Harmonized HIRF rule released in the Federal Register for comment, and will replace the interim special conditions, Equipment Qualification, Aircraft certification and testing, Pitfalls and problems, Design issues, An overview of lightning requirements and design. With particular emphasis on practical measurement, this workshop is particularly relevant to engineers and technicians involved in aircraft HIRF certification.


EMC for Working Engineers (Basic Course)

This seminar's primary focus is to help working engineers understand the causes of EMC problems so this knowledge can be applied to real world product design immediately. Formulas and equations are not required and are minimized throughout the seminar. Understanding the causes of EMC problems will allow engineers to make difficult design trade-off decisions will be the main focus.

Advanced EMC Design using Simulation Tools (Advanced Course)

This seminar provides a complete assessment of the various modeling techniques available today, and more importantly, provides a number of detailed examples of how-to create models for a wide variety of disciplines. Radiated emissions from printed circuit boards, cables, antennas, and other general devices are all discussed and demonstrated against real-world problems. It is extremely important that the use validate modeling/simulation results and so validation of modeling techniques and modeling codes are discussed, as well as standard modeling problems to allow engineers a more complete evaluation against potential vendor software packages. The seminar focuses heavily on practical, real-world problems, and provides the students with the ability to begin to do EMC modeling and simulation on their own.

Not all simulation techniques are appropriate for every desired simulation task! Each technique will do some types of simulation very well, while not performing well for other tasks. This seminar will discuss how each technique works (without lots of math) and where each technique is optimum and where it is not advised.


This course will provide a basis for making informed radiated emission / immunity testing decisions by answering questions like, What kind of test facilities available? What type of Electromagnetic Environment is available with each test facility, What to expect from test? What type of facility should you buy? In addition this course will also cover some standards overview, test planning issues, detailed coverage of major test techniques, sources of uncertainty in test results and uncertainty propagation and impact on test results.
