The Value of Pre-Selection in EMC Measurements 🗓

— (EMC) – CISPR, MIL-STD461, spectrum analyzer architecture, receivers, different measurement results …

*** Note the New Meeting Location: **
Food Sponsor: Rohde & Schwarz
Cost: No Admission Charge
Date: 15 June 2017
Time: 05:30 PM to 07:30 PM
Location: Al Ameer Restaurant, 2100 N. Haggerty, Canton
5:30 Shish or Shawarma Sandwich, Rice, Bread, Hummus, Salad and water or Coke.
6:00 Presentation — SPEAKER Scott Niemiec of Rohde & Schwarz
Abstract: Pre-Selection is an often misunderstood concept, especially with both spectrum analyzers and EMC receivers using the term in different contexts. This presentation will review how the standards reference pre-selection, both CISPR and MIL-STD461. The differences in the pre-selection architectures of spectrum analyzers and EMC receivers will be covered with an emphasis on why they are different. To drive home the value of pre-selection, videos showing different measurement results with and without pre-selection will be shown and discussed.
Biography: Scott Niemiec is an Applications Engineer with Rohde & Schwarz, supporting the Central US from his base in the Chicago area. In addition to his extensive support of Spectrum & Network Analyzers for general purpose testing, Scott is also one of the primary Application Engineers supporting EMC test equipment and systems and radar test applications throughout the US. Before joining Rohde & Schwarz in 2012, Scott was a R&D Engineer with Nokia Siemens Networks in Arlington Heights, IL and prior to that he worked as a Senior Staff RF Engineer for Motorola Solutions in Arlington Heights, IL. Scott has extensive background in research and development of complex RF architectures for wireless communication equipment and systems. He holds a BSEE from Michigan Technological University.

GM Heritage Center Tour 🗓

— the ultimate automotive enthusiast’s garage, 150 vehicle exhibits, a living repository of automotive history —

Wednesday, June 14
GM Heritage Center Tour
8:30 – 10:00 a.m.
6400 Center Drive, Sterling Heights

SAE Detroit Section has arranged this exclusive tour, which normally is only open to GM employees, analysts and the media. The GM Heritage Center is not just a museum, but a cross between the ultimate automotive enthusiast’s garage and a living repository of automotive history.

In 2008, General Motors opened the GM Heritage Center to coincide with their 100 year anniversary. This facility plays a key role in showcasing the company’s rich history of success and its strong engineering capability.

More than 150 vehicle exhibits and historical memorabilia representing 10 decades are represented. The vehicle collection showcases a wide range of GM design, technology, and innovation. Guests will have the opportunity to see past and current concept vehicles, muscle cars, as well as historically significant vehicles form various eras. The center is always changing with vehicle exhibits being constantly freshened.

By highlighting the exciting designs, groundbreaking technology, and powerful brands that have comprised GM’s first century, the GM Heritage Center will help inspire new generations of enthusiasts and make the company even stronger in years to come as GM moves toward a second century of operations. This is evident by great designs, both legendary and recent, like the sixth generation Corvette, Cadillac 16 Concept Vehicle, and the Pontiac Solstice.

This is a great opportunity for SAE members to mentor a young professional, take advantage of the landscape, and experience the history.

The tour is limited to SAE members and their guests. Pre-registration is required.

Big Data Architecture Design 🗓

Big Data Architecture Design

Innovative Approaches & Design Challenges for Big Data Architectures by Brian Finley, Lenovo

Event Details: (link text to chapter/vTools information)

Hadoop open source software suite has been instrumental in ushering in the paradigm shift from classical to “Big Data” computing, both for its’ creators and a broad audience of commercial, research, industrial & academic users. While it is usually the core framework that can be part of a Big Data platform, it does have a number of limitations. This talk will address some of those limitations and how alternate pre-existing and emerging solutions are being incorporated with Hadoop to satisfy certain scaling and enterprise class requirements in modern Big Data architectures.
