Electrical noise reduction courses offered by Engineering New Mexico Resource Network

New Mexico State University's Engineering New Mexico Resource Network, in conjunction with the Klipsch School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is offering a two-day course called Grounding and Shielding of Electronic Systems: How to Diagnose and Solve Electromagnetic Interference and Signal Integrity Problems. Also offered is a one-day Circuit Board Layout course that can be taken alone or as a companion to grounding and shielding.


The grounding and shielding course will be held Tuesday, Feb. 26, and Wednesday, Feb. 27; the circuit board layout course will be held Thursday, Feb. 28. Both courses will be held on the NMSU Las Cruces campus.

The grounding and shielding course will focus on controlling interference and signal integrity problems at the systems level, involving both analog and digital circuitry. The circuit board layout course uses the concepts presented in the grounding and shielding course to reduce electrical interference problems specifically at the circuit board level. These courses will be useful for people with technical experience ranging from beginner to advanced designer.

The courses will be taught by Tom Van Doren, professor emeritus of electrical and computer engineering at the Missouri University of Science and Technology, and a founding member of the Electromagnetic Compatibility Laboratory. His courses and consulting work in grounding, shielding, noise control and other circuit design and analysis issues have become internationally known during the past decades.
