Live Webinar on FCC Rules Recently Released for ANSI C63.25.1 and ANSI C63.10


NEWS:  FCC Equipment Authorization Rules NPRM Were Recently Released for ANSI C63.25.1: "Validation Methods for Radiated Emission Test Sites, 1 GHz to 18 GHz" and ANSI C63.10: "Procedures for Compliance Testing of Unlicensed Wireless Devices."  Learn about these standards PLUS the upcoming changes to C63.26-2015: "Procedures for Compliance Testing of Licensed Transmitters."


Join us for a LIVE webinar with the industry experts who are active technical contributors to these ANSI C63 Standards on EMC test site validation and unlicensed wireless devices - now in the public comment stage with the FCC!   Plus, get a "sneak peek" of the upcoming changes to C63.26-2015.  IEEE members and non-members are welcome to attend the webinar

Our webinar will be moderated by Dan Hoolihan, President of Hoolihan EMC Consulting.  His 50 years of experience in the EMC engineering profession began at Control Data Corporation.  Since January 2000, he has been consulting in EMC engineering.   He is presently Chair of the Accredited National Standards Committee (ANSC) C63® on EMC.  Mr. Hoolihan has been a member of the IEEE since 1983 and is currently a Life Senior Member.  From 1998-1999 he was President of the IEEE EMC Society and has served on its Board of Directors for many years since 1987.  He has held numerous leadership positions within the EMC Society and currently serves as Chair of the History Committee.  Mr. Hoolihan received his MS degree in Physics from Louisiana State University in 1969 and his MBA from the University of Minnesota in 1975.

Time Domain SVSWR for Compliance Site Validation Measurements Based on ANSI C63.25.1-2018

This presentation will provide an update on the C63.25.1-2018 standard for site validation measurements for 1-18 GHz applications.  The FCC has recently proposed rulemaking to incorporate the C63.25.1-2018 standard.  The main contribution of the standard is the introduction of Time Domain Site VSWR (TD SVSWR) for validating an EMC test site for above 1 GHz applications.  Commercial and in-house EMC Test Labs will benefit from a fast, precise site validation technique, as an option with equivalent results as the CISPR SVSWR method.  TD SVSWR has also been proven as an effective chamber “debugging” tool that quickly identifies problems in a chamber that fails to meet performance test requirements.  We will walk through the measurement steps and data processing so users will gain a better understanding of the method as well as the rationale and benefits of the TD SVSWR method.   


Zhong Chen is the Director of RF Engineering with ETS-Lindgren, located in Cedar Park, Texas.   He has over 25 years of experience in RF testing, anechoic chamber design, as well as antenna and EMC field probe design and measurements.   He is currently a member of the Antenna Measurement Techniques Association (AMTA) Board of Directors.  Mr. Chen is the Chair of Subcommittee 1 of ANSC C63, which is responsible for EMC antenna calibration and test site validation standards.   He is also chair of the IEEE Standard 1309 committee responsible for developing calibration standards for field probes, and IEEE Standard 1128 for absorber measurements.   He has served as a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE EMC Society.  His research interests include measurement uncertainty, time domain measurements, and development of novel RF absorber materials.    Mr. Chen received his M.S.E.E. degree in electromagnetics from the Ohio State University at Columbus.

Update on Unlicensed and Licensed Wireless Device Standards ANSI C63.10-2020 and Draft C63.26

This presentation will provide an overview of the changes to C63.10-2020 and upcoming changes to the current version C63.26-2015.  The FCC has recently proposed rulemaking to incorporate C63.10:2020 into its rules to test unlicensed wireless devices.  There have been several updates to the 2013 edition of the standard, which is the currently referenced version in FCC rules.  C63.26-2015 is currently under revision and this presentation will highlight some of the important changes that will be coming in the next edition.  Testing laboratories that test to FCC rules and regulations for both unlicensed and licensed wireless devices will benefit from this overview.


Bob DeLisi, Principal Engineer, Consumer Technology Division, has been with UL for over 30 years and involved in all facets of the UL EMC/Wireless business from testing to lab management.  He is a Telecommunications Certification Body for the FCC, Foreign Certification body for ISED Canada, and is a Notified Body under both the EMC Directive and the Radio Equipment Directive.  He participates on ANSC C63 and is the current Chair of Subcommittee 4 for Wireless and ISM Devices.  Mr. DeLisi also actively participates on Subcommittee 1 (Techniques and Development) and Subcommittee 6 (Accreditation/Conformity Assessment) and Subcommittee 8 (Medical Devices).  In addition, he is a member of the IECEE’s Committee of Testing Laboratories Expert Task Force, CLT-EFT 10 for EMC.  Mr. DeLisi holds a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering and is a NARTE Certified EMC Laboratory Engineer.
