Webinar Description

This Six-Pack of Bruce Webinars: High Speed Digital Design will explain and present working methods for ensuring proper high-speed electronics design for digital circuits. As speeds ramp up to the multi-gigahertz region, special care must be taken to ensure electronic circuit designs have the necessary design elements to ensure proper propagation to minimize crosstalk, radiation and electromagnetic interference and to maximize signal fidelity.

These concepts derive from fundamental electromagnetics (EM) principles. This webinar series builds these concepts from the ground up, expanding to the concepts of EM for the working engineer and elaborates on critical concepts necessary for excellent gigahertz printed circuit board design.

The Presenter

Dr. Bruce Archambeault


Dr. Bruce Archambeault is a IBM Distinguished Engineer Emeritus at IBM in Research Triangle Park, NC and an Adjunct professor at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla, MO. He received his B.S.E.E degree from the University of New Hampshire in 1977 and his M.S.E.E degree from Northeastern University in 1981. He received his Ph. D. from the University of New Hampshire in 1997. His doctoral research was in the area of computational electromagnetics applied to real-world EMC problems. In 1981 he joined Digital Equipment Corporation and through 1994 he had assignments ranging from EMC/TEMPEST product design and testing to developing computational electromagnetic EMC-related software tools. In 1994 he joined SETH Corporation where he continued to develop computational electromagnetic EMC-related software tools and used them as a consulting engineer in a variety of different industries. In 1997 he joined IBM in Raleigh, N.C. where he is the lead EMC engineer, responsible for EMC tool development and use on a variety of products. During his career in the U.S. Air Force he was responsible for in-house communications security and TEMPEST/EMC related research and development projects. Dr. Archambeault has authored or co-authored a number of papers in computational electromagnetics, mostly applied to real-world EMC applications. He is currently a member of the Board of Directors for the IEEE EMC Society and a past Board of Directors member for the Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society (ACES). He has served as a past IEEE/EMCS Distinguished Lecturer and Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Electromagnetic Compatibility. He is the author of the book “PCB Design for Real-World EMI Control” and the lead author of the book titled “EMI/EMC Computational Modeling Handbook”. He has lectured at the University of Oxford for the last 12 years.
