Calling all Students

The IEEE EMC Society is pleased to announce the 2015 Student EMC Hardware Design Competition, administered by its Educational and Student Activities Committee (ESAC). The objective of the competition is to provide students interested in the field of EMC a hands-on opportunity to apply their knowledge.

This year’s focus is on signal integrity. The competitors are required to design a differential-pair circuit producing an optimal signal with minimal distortion. An unpopulated PCB board, board schematic and a few critical components will be provided after receipt of the completed entry form.  The competition is open to college-level teams, both at the undergraduate and graduate level. 

For more information on the competition rules and to request a parts kit, contact the competition administrator Professor Bogdan Adamczyk, Grand Valley State University,

Deadline for submitting the finished design: January 19, 2015
