Rohde & Schwarz has announced the U.K. dates and venues for the in-person Demystifying Electro Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) Global Tour. The two U.K. events will take place on April 25 in Reading and April 27 in Leeds. 

With a mixture of expert presentations, practical demonstrations and lively discussions, the seminars will get to the heart of current EMC issues. EMC expert from Rohde & Schwarz James MacAlonan will be joined on stage by well-known industry expert, Lee Hill of Silent Solutions LLC for a day of insightful and educational sessions covering many modern EMC topics and techniques.

The first session with James MacAlonan will be on ‘The Meaning of Time,’ where he will dive into how spectrum analyzers and receivers make measurements and how the dwell/sweep time affects what we can see from that measurement. The second presentation will take an in-depth look at fast fourier transforms; how they differ from traditional measurement methods and how can they be implemented with today’s test equipment.

The program will also feature a two part presentation by Lee Hill, entitled: 'Getting Good with Ground.' Lee will demonstrate and present intuitive ways to understand ground in electrical schematics, PCB layouts and electronic enclosure installations, focusing on the function and impact of ground on regulatory (EMC) and functional noise problems. 

Each event will conclude with a session of questions from the audience.
