APEMC conference in Shenzhen, China

2 minute read

Attended the 7th Asia-Pacific International Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility & Signal Integrity and Technical Exhibition (APEMC2016) at the The Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center in Shenzhen this week.

I presented a paper on the shadowing effects in stacks of PCBs by looking at how the absorption cross-section (ACS) measured using a reverberation chamber changes (Parker et al., 2016). The overall energy absorption is significantly reduced by the close spacing of the PCBs in a stack.

My talk on stacked PCB ACS measurements

The content of the papers is part of the Shielding measurement of electrically large enclosures with contents collaboration project between Huawei Technologies and the AEG.

Some papers I found particularly interesting during the conference were Perry Wilson’s paper on the correspondence between acoustic and electromagnetic reverberation chambers (Wilson2016), Zhao Yuan et al’s paper on the statistical analysis of fields in electrically large enclosures (Zhao2016) and Cao Zhangshuai et al’s paper on nonlinear scattering is a reverberation chamber (Cao2016).
