ATI's Design for EMC/SI course
Design for EMC/SI (Electromagnetic Compatibility & Signal Integrity) is our flagship EMC design class. It addresses the control of EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) at the box level through proven design techniques. This two-day course provides a comprehensive treatment of EMC/SI "inside the box." This includes digital and analog circuits, printed circuit board design, power electronics, I/O treatments, mechanical shielding, and more. Please note - this class does NOT address "outside the box" issues such as cable design, power wiring, and other systems level concerns. Each student will receive a copy of the EDN Magazine Designer's Guide to EMC by Daryl Gerke and William Kimmel, along with a complete set of lecture notes.
William (Bill) Kimmel., PE, has worked in the electronics field for over 45 years. He received his BSEE with distinction from the University of Minnesota. His experience includes design and systems engineering with industry leaders like Control Data and Sperry Defense Systems. Since, 1987, he has been involved exclusively with EMI/EMC as a founding partner of Kimmel Gerke Associates, Ltd. Bill has qualified numerous systems to industrial, commercial, military, medical, vehicular, and related EMI/EMC requirements.
Daryl Gerke, PE, has worked in the electronics field for over 40 years. He received his BSEE from the University of Nebraska. His experience ranges includes design and systems engineering with industry leaders like Collins Radio, Sperry Defense Systems, Tektronix, and Intel. Since 1987, he has been involved exclusively with EMI/EMC as a founding partner of Kimmel Gerke Associates, Ltd. Daryl has qualified numerous systems to industrial, commercial, military, medical, vehicular, and related EMI/EMC requirements.
