1. “ESD Simulator Verification – Techniques and Current Requirements”
Abstract: Many OEMs have an ESD simulator and virtually every EMC laboratory has one or more ESD simulators. Many are equipped to verify the ESD simulators’ performance but few to the latest requirements. This presentation will cover:
- Verification techniques
- Latest changes to verification requirements
- How the new systems compare to older systems
- Practical aspects of measurement setup and performance
- Recommendation for air-discharge verification
Presenter: Randy Johnson, Teseq (Sales Manager)
Bio: Randy Johnson has been working in the EMC marketplace for over 30 years. He was co-owner of Loren Green Associates, a respected Manufacturer’s Rep company in Chicago, IL. Since 2004, Randy has been a Sales Manager at Schaffner Test Systems, now known as Teseq Inc. Randy was part of the management buyout of Teseq in 2007. Randy has been directly involved with customers in engineering/meeting their test equipment, systems & EMC software requirements for Commercial & Automotive applications.
2. “Suppressing EMI and Mitigating ESD at Early Design Stage”
Abstract: The key to successful PCB design is tackling EMI and ESD problems at early design stage. This presentation will cover how EMIStream, a tool developed by NEC, can help you detect EMI and ESD causing factors. The presentation will include a demonstration of the tool.
Presenter: Yoshi Fukawa, TechDream (President and Founder)
Bio: Yoshi Fukawa received his B.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Tokyo University of Science, Japan, in 1988. He received a certification of the NARTE EMC Engineer in 2000. He used to be an EMC committee member of the JEIDA in Japan. He currently is a member of the IEEE Santa Clara Valley EMC Chapter. He is a founder of TechDream who has been providing EMC/PI total solutions carrying EMI/PI simulation software.
Presenter: Yoshiaki “Jackie” Maruyama, NEC Informatec Systems, Ltd. (Application Engineer)
Bio: Yoshiaki Maruyama received BMATH degrees from Tokyo University of Science, Japan, in 2003.He received a certification of EMC Design Engineer by KEC & iNARTE in 2011. He has served as an EMC committee member of JIEP in Japan. He has been involved in the development of EMIStream for ten years and is currently in charge of EMIStream EMI/ESD Rule Checker.
3. “Avoiding PCB level ESD - Tips on ESD Free Design”
Abstract: Doug will cover ESD design issues for circuit boards and how to avoid problems. Data will be presented to illustrate design approaches. Videos will also be used to show experiments and data to support suggested design approaches. Case histories and war stories will be included. This will be a high energy, high intensity talk!
Presenter: Doug Smith (D. C. Smith Consultants)
Bio: Mr. 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.
