Daryl Gerke, PE, has been a successful consulting engineer for 41 years. In 1978, Daryl and his business partner (the late Bill Kimmel, PE) co-founded Kimmel Gerke Associates as a part-time electrical engineering consulting firm. In 1987, they went full time specializing in EMI/EMC design, troubleshooting, and training.
Since 1987, they solved or prevented hundreds of EMI/EMC problems across a range of industries. They wrote three books and over 200 articles on EMI/EMC, and they trained over 12,000 students on EMI/EMC design and troubleshooting through their seminars.
Now easing into retirement, Daryl no longer consults but remains involved in EMC training.
Daryl has a BSEE (Electrical Engineering) degree from the University of Nebraska, is a Registered Professional Engineer (PE), and a NARTE Certified EMC Engineer (NCEE).
Like it or not, most electronic designs today are subject to formal EMI testing. So even if you are new to EMI/EMC (electromagnetic interference/compatibility), you need to understand what is involved and how to best prepare for a trip to the EMI test lab.
