IEEE EMC Society Boston Chapter April Meeting: Dr. Lam Presentation


IEEE EMC Society Boston Chapter Meeting / Presentation - Wednesday April 20th at 4 PM EDT via Zoom Webinar

Speaker: Dr. Cheung-Wei Lam, Distinguished Engineer and Chief EM Technologist at Apple

Topic: Common Misconceptions about Inductance & Current Return Path

Abstract: In today’s high-speed system designs, a good understanding of inductance and current return path is important for signal integrity and EMI control. Unfortunately, several key concepts about the two have often been misunderstood or overlooked. This presentation will discuss the main concepts and some common misconceptions about inductance and current return path. Examples will be given at the chip and PCB levels.

Dr. Cheung-Wei Lam is a Distinguished Engineer and Chief EM Technologist at Apple. Prior to Apple, he was a co-founder at Transcendent Design Technology and a principal engineer at Quad Design Technology. Dr. Lam received B.S. from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and S.M./Ph.D. from MIT. He currently serves as an IEEE EMC Society Respected Speaker and was a past IEEE EMC Society Distinguished Lecturer.
