Unintentional Antennas

October 20, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

One of the biggest causes of EMC test failures is finding unexpected radiating structures in the unit under test. RF could be radiating from the printed circuit board (PCB) or from interconnect cabling, both of which can act as “unintentional antennas” with radiating characteristics that designers never intended. This talk covers some basics of antenna theory and helps you identify potential unintended radiating “antennas” in your product.

Karen Burnham is a Principal Scientist at Electro Magnetic Applications in Denver, CO. Ms. Burnham is a member of the IEEE EMC Society Board of Directors where she serves as Assistant Vice President of Standards. She holds a BS degree in Physics from Northern Arizona University and an MS degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Houston. Scroll down for full bio.
