Mr. Bosley's accomplishments include the automation of new Radiated Emissions and Radiated Immunity tests, new Conducted Immunity tests and test facilities, new transducer and data acquisition methods and has made two invention disclosures.

Mr. Bosley is currently an active member in the IEEE/EMC and EOS/ESD societies and contributes to the SAE EMI/EMR committees.


The Ford/Visteon component EMC specification has developed over many years with efforts from many dedicated people. The requirement adopts international requirements and methods from ISO and CISPR where possible as well as unique tests to help avoid some very specific real world concerns. For each test , there is a history that justifies itís creation and existence as a way of addressing a specific environmental threat. This discussion will review the test requirements and focus on the threat that is intended to protect against as well as how itís accompanying test method is to be performed.
