Evening Presentation Information 

Power vs. Field: A Novel Approach to Immunity Testing Above 1 GHz.

Vic Hudson, Director - EMC Solutions, ETS-Lindgren, Cedar Park, Texas 

This presentation includes a review of theory, design concept, functionality, setup configuration, main applications and more, showcasing an EMField generator as a novel, integrated solution for radiated immunity testing. 

A live demonstration of the material presented will be held at the conclusion of the technical program, using the radiated immunity chamber at Northwest EMC. 

Is There Any Value to do NSA Validation Above 2 Meters? (Based on the latest version of ANSI C63.4a... ) 

Northwest EMC, an Element Materials Technology Company, General Manager Dean Ghizzone and Director of Engineering Greg Kiemel 

Draft ANSI C63.4a/D1.01 adds ideal NSA values for 2.5m vertical and 3m horizontal to Annex D.  The change provides a means to validate test volumes greater than 2m in height. This presentation will discuss the comparative measurements that were made to see if there is any reason to validate a test volume greater than 2 meters in height.
