The Academy of EMC
About Academy of EMC
The Academy of EMC is a non-profit organization. We have the strong belief that education is the foundation of prosperity and a free society. The Academy of EMC wants to contribute to that and our mission is stated as follows:
The Academy of EMC brings free education
about Electromagnetic Compatibility to everybody.
This website is a free and independent source of information on Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC). It is a place where engineers can find education, inspiration, solutions and support in EMC.
EMC is becoming more and more important as today's society moves toward autonomous and intelligent machines to which we entrust our lives to (e.g. autonomous cars). Therefore, we believe that it is important to have a code of ethics to follow.
The PDF-document here, contains the statutes of our non-profit organisation. They are in German, because the place of residence of the legal entity of Academy of EMC is in Switzerland.
I'm Reto Keller, founder and president of the Academy of EMC. I am an electrical engineer with over 10 years of experiences in electronics design. I performed uncountable EMC measurements and succeeded in EMC compliance testing of different products from different industries.
Since years, I'm passionate about EMC. Yes, it sounds crazy. I mean: EMC is not a really fancy topic and you cannot talk with your friends about it (at least not with non-engineers), as they get bored quickly. But what is it, that makes EMC a fascinating topic for many engineers?
For me, EMC means...
... electrical engineering at highest level (high-frequency design).
... theoretical knowledge (in electrical engineering) and practical experience brought together.
... a responsibility for us, the product and development engineers towards the users and the society to only release compliant products to the markets which guarantee reliable operation and safety.
In December 2017, my passion about EMC brought me to the point where I decided to release my simple but practical EMC Design Guidelines online. The feedback all over the world was great and I soon realized that nobody taught me all these practical guidelines at university. This was the moment at which the idea of the Academy of EMC was born.
