To Whom it may concern
I manage an automotive EMC Laboratory at Robert Bosch Australia (RBAU), part of Automotive Electronics (AE) Division. Main automotive products under test are Body Computers with or without Remote Keyless Entry, Transmission Controllers, Immobilisers and Door Modules.
RBAU first became aware of Keith Armstrong several years ago when he presented EMC short courses on “Designing for EMC”.
The philosophies presented were adopted and the EMC element of our design cycle immediately became shorter and more effective. This enabled further process improvement by allowing knowledge to be captured and applied to subsequent projects as early as possible.
In subsequent years Keith Armstrong continued to tour and present EMC courses.
The subject matter has always evolved to be uncannily aligned with where our effort is currently focussed. In recent times this has included the impact of ISO 26262 on automotive functional safety.
I am not aware of any other person that would be capable of presenting this EMC information as effectively as Keith. His courses expose students to information that enable them to innovate.
His knowledge is very broad; covering several electronics sectors and extends to include detailed engineering knowledge, awareness of regulatory requirements as well as an understanding of the unique processes used by each sector.
He has extraordinary depth of knowledge in each field. The effectiveness of his training courses is only limited by the drive and commitment of those that attend.
