Dorothy, we're not in Kansas anymore, we are in Impedance Land. Oh my! EMC Webinar
Joanna was born and raised in Miami, FL, USA. She was educated at Florida Institute of Technology and Georgia Tech, receiving her M.S.E.E. in 1976. Starting her career with Texas Instruments in the suburbs of Houston, TX, USA, she came to the Detroit, MI, USA area to work for Burroughs in 1979 on a single user computer, the B80. After the merger with Sperry, she left the computer industry in 1986 to work for United Technologies Automotive. While working for Burroughs in Plymouth, MI, she audited an antenna design class at the University of Michigan. Along the way she learned about fractional wavelength antennas while designing automotive keyless entry receivers and transmitters. Those little fobs have a fractional wavelength antenna inside them. These small antennas taught her that a fully functional radio link could be obtained with a tiny little bad antenna. She extended the knowledge of fractional wavelength antennas to electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and learned to recognize these antenna structures within printed circuit boards and products. This work led to the creation of the 10 Golden Rules of EMC.
This webinar presented by Joanna Hill will go over the 10 Golden Rules of Electromagnetic Compatibility and looks to pass on knowledge on fractional wavelength antennas.
