Fundamentals of MIL-STD: Part 1

January 14, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Join us for a free webinar on January 14, 2021 at 1:00 PM ET/10:00 AM PT. Presentation will be between 30 to 45 minutes, with time for questions at end. If your schedule won’t permit you to attend the live presentation, you can still register and receive a link to the recording that will be sent out later, but you must register at least 24 hours before the event time.

The Military Standards for EMC testing have evolved as technologies have changed. Join us to understand why.

Early on, MIL-STD 461 addressed basic radio frequency interference. In the origins of electronic development, the concern was “noise” in the AM/FM radio systems. Now, as equipment has changed and become more complex, the tests have expanded to cover the ways and means of equipment operation, including complex threats, operating environments and design challenges. This webinar will cover the basics of MIL-STD testing, with commentary on test setups, making sense of these measurements and how to ascertain the essentials of compliance to the standard.

As a special feature, we are pleased to welcome Steve Ferguson, who has the hands-on experience and has lectured about testing and measurements across the spectrum. Steve will cover a new methodology for CS101, an essential part of the MIL testing suite.

We welcome you to the dialogue.

This informative event will be presented by Michael Violette.
