Invitation lecturer Talk on “Unintentional Antennas”
We invite you for a distinguished lecturer Talk on “Unintentional Antennas” by Ms. Karen Burnham. The talk will take place at KU Leuven Bruges campus on the 5th of June, Monday, 10h30-12h in room 05.10. Attending is free of charge, but please register through this link.
One of the biggest causes of EMC test failures is radiating structures in a unit, whether from the PCB or cabling, that are acting in ways designers never intended.
This talk covers basics of antenna theory and how to identify potential radiating “antennas” in your product.
