Do you care about reducing EMC or signal integrity problems in your next design? Do you struggle with the confusing and conflicting design guidelines offered in application notes, or in articles in the trade press? Want to take a class, but not sure if you want to spend all of your time listening to just one expert? Then here is the opportunity for you!
For three days during the 2012 IEEE EMC Conference in Pittsburg, PA, in Aug, you can participate in the the Global EMC and SI University. This will be the sixth year for this concentrated study program, which consists of 17, different 1-2 hour tutorials focused on important and practical topics in EMC and SI system design.
Learn about “Differential Pair Design I wish my Mother Taught Me”, from Jeff Loyer, or “Why Eyes Collapse”, by Patrick Carrier, or “Horror Stories from the Field- with Happy Endings”, from Rick Hartley. These are just a few of the talks you will be able to catch at the Global EMC and SI University.
Tutorial sessions will be held from Tues, Aug 7 to Thurs, Aug 9, concurrent with the IEEE EMC symposium. There will be breaks for attendees to visit some of the conference technical sessions and the show floor. But, you must register separately for the Global University to attend these outstanding tutorials.
When you register for the IEEE EMC conf, there is an option to click to add the registration for the Global U. Some of the tutorial sessions are presented only in the EMC or only in the SI tracks while others are joint presentations.
This year, I am honored to be the coordinator for the SI tutorials, sharing the responsibility with my colleague Mark Staffka, who is coordinating the EMC tutorials. Chuck Bunting is the overall Chair of the Global University. We’ve pulled together a collection of 17 experts in the industry to present on a wide range of topics such as S-parameters, practical tools for EMC and SI analysis and PDN design.

This year, the Global University was expanded to include signal integrity. This reflects the increasingly important role of signal integrity topics in the IEEE EMC society.
Nowhere will you find such a distinguished collection of world class experts offering tutorials on practical EMC and SI topics. When a unique opportunity like this comes along, you should seriously consider taking advantage.
I’ll see you there!
