Welcome to the Central Texas Chapter of the IEEE EMC Society.

As part of the Central Texas Section of the IEEE, our chapter is open to those interested in the field of Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) design, test, and certification. This web site provides Chapter and Society news, Chapter meeting information, details of relevant conferences, local job openings and links to other sites of interest.

Upcoming Events

∞ CHAPTER MEETING: The Chapter will hold its next meeting on Wednesday, January 23rd at ETS-Lindgren in Cedar Park, TX. With “Time-Domain” measurement capabilities being touted by all of the various EMI Receiver and Spectrum Analyzer manufacturer’s, the Chapter will be inviting the various manufacturer’s to present on their implementation of the technology and its benefits, and perhaps challenges, for EMC testing. The first of these manufacturer’s to present will be Gauss Instruments. At this meeting, we will host Stephan Braun, who will describe and demonstrate the technology behind their TDEMI series of real-time, receiver/analyzers. Meeting details can be found here.

∞ NEW JOB OPPORTUNITY: Garmin in Olathe, Kansas has a new opening for an EMC Lab Team Leader. For more information, check out the Jobs section of the website.

∞ NEW LOCAL JOB OPPORTUNITY: AMD in Austin has a new opening for a EMC/EMI/RFI Architect & Product Development Engineer. For more information, check out the Jobs section of the website.


∞ The Chapter officers for 2018 are:

Chairman: Todd Steigerwald, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)
Vice-Chair: Ross Carlton, ETS-Lindgren
Secretary: Mark Maynard, American Certification Body
Treasurer: Jack McFadden, ETS-Lindgren
Member-at-Large: vacant

 CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS. The Chapter is seeking individuals or companies that would like to present on a topic of interest to the Chapter at one of our meetings. We are interested in any and all topics that impact EMC – electrical design, mechanical design, standards, test methods, electromagnetic environmental effects, test equipment, etc. Please contact one of our officers if you are interested and/or would like more information.

  CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS. The Chapter will hold officer elections in November using the online IEEE voting tool. If you are interested in serving or if you wish to nominate a member for the honor, please contact me. Our preference is to bring new officers in as Secretary and then progress though the officer positions in an orderly manner but don’t let that stop you from volunteering. Also, we are always in need of members interested in volunteering for a specific purpose (student branch liaison, technical program coordinator, etc) or for a specific event (Future City, science fairs, table-top show, etc).
