About the Event

2018 is our 17th year of IEEE EMC Seminar’s. Printed Circuit Board layout is often the single most important factor affecting the EMC of electronic systems. PCB’s that are auto-routed or laid out according to a list of “design rules” do not usually meet EMC requirements on the first pass resulting in expensive EMC “fixes” such as ferrites on cables and shielded enclosures.  Danial Beeker has lectured internationally on these design issues while providing experience based solutions.

Seminar Speakers

Daniel Beeker- Principal Engineer NXP Semiconductors. With more than 40 years of experience in electronic system design and EMC, Daniel Beeker provides applications support for NXP Automotive customers worldwide.  Daniel also supports NXP customers globally with special function development tools and instrumentation (almost all of the “LFxxx” tools on the NXP website).  Daniel worked for Freescale Semiconductor before Freescale and NXP merged in 2015.  Daniel also specializes in EMC and signal integrity design techniques for systems and PCBs. In support of this, Daniel has completed more than 200 PCB design evaluations for customers and internal NXP products.  Daniel teaches field based design techniques at NXP and industry conferences worldwide; more than 70 sessions with more than 3500 attendees since 2010.  Daniel is also involved with NXP IC package design and IC development tool teams to support improved EMC performance, working on more than 20 IC designs. Specialties: Microprocessor and Microcontroller development tools, PCB layout techniques for EMC and signal integrity, and Automotive applications specialist.
