RSVP:   Please respond to glen@southwestemi.com so we have an approximate head count. Everyone is welcome to attend – you do not need to be an IEEE member – just interested in EMI/EMC.


EMC receiver architecture has evolved to integrate modern technology and this provides distinct advantages in comparison to traditional swept spectrum analyzers when making EMC emissions measurements.  This presentation will discuss these advantages including pre-selection, FFT based time domain scan, and real-time spectrum analysis.  Live demonstration on an EMC receiver throughout the presentation will help drive home the technical concepts presented.
