IEEE EMC Society Chicago Chapter Meeting Tuesday, February
Engineering as a Career
for Roy Leventhal
retired after a 55 year career as an electronics engineer. He is still
active as a Life Member in the Chicago Chapter of the IEEE EMC society.
Roy is current Chairman of the IEEE Chicago-Rockford Consultants’
earned his BS/MSEE at Illinois Institute of Technology and has performed
additional post-graduate studies in semiconductor device physics
(University of Santa Clara) and RF microwave circuit design (University of
Wisconsin, Milwaukee. Roy was co-owner of Leventhal Design &
Communications, where he consulted and taught computer-aided circuit
simulation and semiconductor modeling using IBIS, SPICE and S-Parameters
models for signal integrity, power integrity, and EMC (electromagnetic
55 year career included design experience in RF circuits, semiconductor
transistor applications, semiconductor component design, reliability,
failure analysis, signal integrity, and EMI-EMC troubleshooting. Roy
integrated this diverse background authoring the book Semiconductor
Modeling: For Simulating Signal, Power, and Electromagnetic Integrity,
Springer 2006 (ISBN: 0-387-24159-0). Roy was active in the IBIS Model
Committee, having served as committee librarian for IBIS model sources and
on the subcommittee for model quality. He has taught signal integrity at
Cadence Design Systems, 3Com Corporation, IIT, RIC of Northwestern
University and IEEE EMC Society meetings. Most recently he worked on the
Boeing 787 and other aircraft design programs, doing EMI/EMC Regulatory
testing and trouble-shooting.
determining a career path today, may different aspects must be considered. The
presentation by Roy Leventhal will review what an engineering career path may
entail. Why consider an engineering career, what skills are needed, technical
and soft skills, what to focus on, how to best promote oneself, how to
communicate effectively, and the enjoyment of the work as reviewed along what
past case histories from one of the most experienced engineers in our industry.
This overview will provide an insight from one who has chosen this path,
and has been an industry leader in his profession.
