ATI's Design for Electromagnetic Compatibility & Signal Integrity (EMI-SI) course


Share |

Summary:

Technical Training Short On Site Course Quote

    Systems EMC involves the control of Electromagnetic Interference at the system level, e.g. outside the box. Equip systems and installation personnel with the tools, tips, and techniques needed to bulletproof the system in the field against common EMI threats. The focus is on systems issues, including grounding, shielding, cabling and power. It does not include circuit board issues.

Instructor:

    Daryl Gerke, PE Daryl received his BSEE from the University of Nebraska, and has worked in the electronics industry for over 40 years. His experience ranges from product and systems design to sales/application engineering and technical marketing with industry leaders such as Collins Radio, Sperry, Tektronix, and Intel. Since 1987, he has been involved exclusively with EMC engineering as a founding partner of Kimmel Gerke Associates, Ltd.
    Daryl's formal EMC experience dates back to 1970, and includes design,test, and qualification of military systems to MIL-STD-461 and TEMPEST; commercial and industrial systems to FCC and CE requirements; medical devices to FDA and IEC 60601-1-2; vehicular electronics to SAE requirements and derivatives; avionics systems to DO-160 and derivatives; telecom systems to GR1089; and more.
    Daryl also has EMP experience, and conducted an in-depth one year classified EMP research project for the US Navy. He is a Registered Professional Engineer, holds FCC Commercial and Amateur Radio Licenses, and is an active member of the IEEE EMC Society. He is also a NARTE Certified EMC and ESD Engineer. He is based in Mesa, AZ.
