In this webcast we will discuss industry’s
first EMC compliant RS-485 interface design tool co-developed by Analog Devices
and Bourns that provides up to Level 4 protection levels for IEC61000-4-2 ESD,
IEC61000-4-4 EFT and IEC61000-4-5 surge. This webcast describes each of these
main transient types, and presents and demonstrates three different EMC
compliant solutions for three different cost / protection levels on RS-485
communication ports. This webcast is co-sponsored by Bourns, Inc. and element14.

Who should attend: Design
engineers who need to protect and qualify their systems against EMC events.

James Scanlon, Senior Engineer,
Iinterface and Isolation Technology Group, Analog Devices

Scanlon, was born in Westmeath, Ireland and received his BE in Electronic
Engineering at the University College Dublin in 2001. He subsequently completed
a M.Eng. in VLSI Systems from the University of Limerick in 2008. James joined
Analog Devices, Limerick Ireland as a graduate engineer in 2001 where he worked
in design evaluation specializing in Laser Diode Drivers. He is currently
working as a senior engineer in the interface and isolation technology group
predominantly dealing with a broad portfolio of transceivers.

Koenraad Rutgers, Senior
Field Applications Engineer, Industrial Market, Bourns Ltd.

Rutgers initially worked for Texas Instruments as a lab based Applications
Engineer specialising in precision measurement techniques. In 1996 he became
Worldwide Telecom Field Applications Engineer for circuit protection products
for Power Innovations Ltd. During his time at Bourns Koenraad has previously
managed the European and Asian Telecom Circuit Protection Field Applications
team, and for 7 years managed new product development for the Semiconductor
division. Key achievements are the integration of reference design activities
with the new product development process, combined with the very successful
launch of these new Circuit Protection products to multiple international
Tier-One customers. During his career to date Koenraad has co-authored 2 IEEE
papers and 4 Patents.
