Simulators for SI, PI, EMC Can Minimize/Eliminate Design Iterations – Justifying Their High Cost is Easy

 Click here to download a copy of the presentation.

This webinar will discuss how high-spec SI and PI field-solving simulators can cost $300,000 per seat, but can guarantee that your first prototype board will meet all functional and EMC specifications and go into volume manufacture without requiring any modifications. How this process works, and (more importantly) how to justify the cost of the simulator to management in terms they understand and can accept.

Keith Armstrong graduated with honors from Imperial College London in 1972 with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering, specializing in analogue circuit design and electromagnetic field theory.
Between 1972 and 1990 he worked for a variety of electronics companies, as electronic designer, then project manager and design manager. In 1990 he went independent with Cherry Clough Consultants Ltd, providing design services to help achieve compliance with EMC, and with Safety, whilst at the same time helping to reduce time-to-market, design costs, unit manufacturing costs, and warranty costs. Now, in 2012, Cherry Clough has had nearly 800 satisfied customers in almost all areas where electronics are used.Additional achievements of Keith Armstrong include: Chartered Electrical Engineer (UK) since 1978 Group 1 European Engineer since 1988 Past Chairman of IEE’s Professional Group (E2) on EMC Member of IEE’s EMC & Product Safety Societies Chairman of IEE’s Working Group on EMC & Functional Safety UK expert appointed to IEC 61000-1-2 maintenance team Numerous publications on EMC for Functional Safety UK expert appointed to IEC 61000-6-7 maintenance team UK expert appointed to IEC 60601-1-2 maintenance team (medical device EMC) Published numerous articles, presented many papers, and published three textbooks, on good, cost-effective EMC design practices for everything from circuits through PCBs to products, systems and installations of any size, whether static or mobile.
