23-11-2018 :: KU Leuven, Campus Brugge

Organizer: KULeuven, campus Brugge & Telerex

KU Leuven, campus Brugge and Telerex Europe kindly invite you for their upcoming EMC Day.
This free event will address a number of issues that design engineers encounter every day when developing electronics for new, IoT applications.


  • 8.30h Doors open and  a warm welcome with coffee
  • 9.30h Introduction speech Telerex – KU Leuven - Fernand Vermeulen (Sales Director – Telerex)
  • 9.40h Future of EMC in industry 4.0
    Because automation, safety and security are critical to the success of smart manufacturing systems. It is important to ensure that production facilities and the products themselves do not pose a danger either to people or to the environment. As machines will become Cyber Physical Systems, with more intelligence and more autonomy, machine safety will become an even more important design requirement. Unavoidably, this also raises concerns on how to make the system robust against EMI. -  Davy Pissoort (Professor - KUL)
  • 10.35h Board level schielding : EMI shielding can versus absorbers, single components and/or combined solutions
    In this session we will cover our standard BLS technology including 1pc, 2pc and multi compartment shielding options. We will also look at design considerations for BLS components, for example thermal handling through the shield, shielding effectiveness vs operating frequencies, etc… As a guide to practical selection we will also cover material options and the possibility of combining BLS with other products such as Thermal Interface and Absorber materials to allow the creation of multi-function solutions. -  Matt Tapping (Territory Sales Manager- Laird)
  • 11.30h  IoT : Interference of Things?
    The number of wireless devices is growing rapidly, and are also deployed in many environments, which is posing new challenges for EMC engineers. This talk discusses the trends and impact, and describes the Electro-Magnetic Diversity as a concept for achieving EM coexistence. Generic measures to achieve the EM Compatibility, i.e. the required selectivity and low unwanted emission, are also  given. - Frank Leferink (Professor / EMC-specialist – Universiteit Twente)                         
  • 12.30h Lunch
  • 13.15h Microwave absorbers : an overview and guidance to material selection & applications
    This session will cover an explanation of some basic theory on absorber material operation and use in applications. We will look at different components of noise seen in a typical application and how an absorber material can be used to reduce the effect of these on surrounding components. We will also cover basic microwave absorber material selection for use in cavity and free space applications. - Martin Rais (Field Application Engineer– Laird)
  • 14.15h Brexit : Technical regulations and product standards
    The UKs departure from the EU will create significant challenges in the area of technical regulations and product standards. Although the Government has declared its intention to use the EU acquis as the starting point for Brexit, difficulties will emerge subsequently as divergences arise. -  Marc Cumps (Chief Expert Technical Regulations – Agoria)
  • 15.15h Networkdrink + optional guided tour in the EMC-facilities of KU Leuven
