A virtual presentation by IEEE EMC-S Distinguished Lecturer Mr. Garth D'Abreu

This relatively new branch of automotive testing  is in its infancy, with test standards still being developed as technology progresses at a rapid pace. This talk focusses on antenna pattern measurement techniques and over-the-air (OTA) performance testing of the communication systems installed in vehicle platforms.  Mr. D’Abreu reviews the adaptation of some of the techniques used in other industries and the design details required to obtain a facility capable of providing accurate and useable vehicle antenna patterns and communication performance data.

IEEE EMC Distinguished Lecturer Mr. Garth D'Abreu IEEE EMC Distinguished Lecturer Mr. Garth D'Abreu of ETS-Lindgren


Garth D’Abreu is the Director, Automotive Solutions at ETS-Lindgren based at the corporate headquarters office in Cedar Park, Texas.  He currently has primary responsibility for the design and development functions within the Systems Engineering group, specializing in turnkey solutions for Automotive EMC, Wireless and OTA test integration.  Some of these more complex full vehicle and ESA test chambers involve his coordination with the RF engineering team on custom components, and the certified, internal Building Information Modeling (BIM) team at ETS-Lindgren.  

He is also the ETS-Lindgren subject matter expert responsible for the ongoing research and development of Reverberation chambers, GTEM cells, and supports the RF filters, EMP applications and wireless device test systems groups.  Automotive EMC, Antenna Measurement, and Wireless Test Systems for modern vehicles, incorporate multiple measurement techniques and chamber combinations, for which his expertise is well suited. 

Mr. D’Abreu is a Senior Member of the IEEE EMC Society and active participant in standards development as a member of the US ISO and CISPR D automotive EMC standards committees.  He has over 27 years of experience in the RF industry and holds a BSc degree in Electronics & Communications Engineering, from North London University, UK.
