Over the past
twenty years I have designed products or portions of products for
application in a variety of industries. I have spent the past eight
years concentrating on EMC issues, understanding the regulations,
how they apply to the products I design, and producing products
that comply without resorting to extraordinary or expensive solutions.
I have come to an understanding that EMC compliant design doesn't
necessarily mean expensive design. This is truly one of those cases
where an ounce of prevention just might be worth more than a pound
I have applied
this experience to the normal process of circuit and system design.
When a design is undertaken with EMC as a continual focus, inherent
compliance is a natural outcome without extraordinary remedial work
after the design is otherwise ready for production.
I have also
served as an in-house consultant to other engineers helping them
solve their EMC problems as well. This is not simply keeping emissions
below regulatory limits, but helping them solve their noise immunity
problems as well.

the design of single boards or entire systems and everything in
between. I can work at any level of involvement from complete project
responsibility to various degrees of interaction with your existing
staff and vendors. I have worked in a diverse set of team environments
with many different organizational models. Many organizations have
very structured product development work flows. Others seem to have
no structure at all. I have seen both methodologies work well and
I have seen both fail. A highly structured orchestra or a loosely
structured jam-session; they can both create beautiful music. They
have vastly different methodologies but the success of each is uniquely
it's own. I can generally find a way to blend cohesively into any
