Inaugural IEEE Continuing EMC Education Award

Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) specialist Keith Armstrong has become the first person to receive the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ (IEEE) new Excellence in Continuing EMC Education Award, presented at the 2018 joint IEEE EMC Society and Asia-Pacific EMC (APEMC) symposium.

The awards ceremony follows a series of successful EMC training courses from Armstrong in Australia, held in April and May this year. They were the latest in a series of courses on good, cost-effective EMC, signal integrity (SI) and power integrity (PI) engineering delivered worldwide for more than 23 years.

During this period Armstrong also wrote many articles and guides and presented many conference papers on these topics, including testing techniques and risk managing electromagnetic interference (EMI), which used to be called ‘EMC for Functional Safety’.

I am very honoured to have been the first person to be presented with this new IEEE award, and will continue to deliver practical education on EMC, SI and PI to engineers worldwide.
