Hi Everyone! I wanted to introduce myself as the new senior technical editor for Interference Technology. I spent the early part of my career in the aerospace industry as a design engineer and the last 20+ years as an EMC engineer, test center manager, and EMC lead for Hewlett-Packard and later the spin-off, Agilent Technologies. In 2008, I “retired myself” early and started a consulting business helping other companies with their EMC compliance issues, as well as provide training in EMC, troubleshooting, and pre-compliance testing. I’ll be continuing as a consultant while providing editorial direction.
Those of you who may have been following my past scribblings are probably aware I blogged for EDN.com for nearly three years on various aspects of EMC testing, product reviews, and pre-compliance testing. Since taking on the role of editor for Interference Technology, I felt I ought to turn that job over to my good friend and colleague, Arturo (Art) Mediano, professor at the University of Zaragosa (Spain) and an accomplished EMC consultant and trainer. Check out my past blogs and Art’s newest postings at The EMC Blog. I’d like to thank Martin Rowe, and the other editorial staff at UBM for their past support.
The top five articles in Interference Technology
Shortly after I joined ITEM Media and started editing Interference Technology, I decided, with the help of the staff, to compile and rank all our past technical articles from 2005 to present. I was hoping to determine the most popular topics as determined by reader “clicks”. I thought knowing this would help me determine what readers feel is most engaging. Some of these topics include EMC basics, product design for compliance, EMC standards updates, and military EMC.
For this initial posting, I’d like to point you to our five most popular technical articles published in Interference Technology. Please enjoy them!
1. The HF current probe: theory and application – Kenneth Wyatt
2. New EMC requirements for commercial avionics: RTCA/DO-160F – Eric Bergstrom
