Dr. Stephan Braun
CTO and Director at GAUSS INSTRUMENTS Inc.
Managing Director of GAUSS INSTRUMENTS International
Technical University of Munich Dr.-Ing., Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) 2004-2007: Summa cum laude
Stephan Braun was born in Überlingen, Germany in 1978. He received the Dipl.-Ing. degree in electrical engineering in 2003 from the Technische Universität M¨nchen (TUM), Munich, Germany. Stephan Braun studied Electrical Engineering at Munich University of Technology (TUM), and received his Dipl.-Ing. Degree in 2003. From 2003-2009 he was Research Assistant at the Institute for High Frequency Engineering, where he received his Dr.-Ing. Degree in 2007. During this time the research was focused on the Theory and Application of Fully Compliant EMI Testing using Time-domain (FFT-based) Methods. He has been working actively since 2007 for DKE and CISPR and has mainly contributed to the inclusion and definition of the FFT-based measuring instrument according to CISPR 16-1-1, CISPR 16-3 and CISPR 16-2-X. In 2010 this novel method became standard and is today referenced by almost all EMI Testing standards, including MIL461G. He is co-founder and managing director of GAUSS INSTRUMENTS International and a Member of VDE, Electrosuisse and IEEE. He is author of more than 120 papers and inventor of several patents, mainly about EMI testing, real-time signal processing, and microwave circuits. Visit Stephan at Gauss Instruments.
W. Michael King
W. Michael King, after a period of design and production in the professional audio recording industry, entered the field that is now known as EMC in 1960. He has been participating in the field of Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) engineering for over fifty years. Within that period, he has been: engaged in the EMC definition, design, evaluation, implementation, management and execution of well over (an estimated) one thousand programs and projects; engaged in contracts with over 1,000 project and systems developers with over 400 clients. Dr. King has authored a major work on the subject of EMC, entitled, “EMCT: Electromagnetic Compatibility Tutorial”, released2 by the IEEE Standards Information Network, and Elliott Laboratories.
