Arturo Mediano received both his M.Sc. (1990) and his Ph. D. (1997) in Electrical Engineering from the University of Zaragoza, Spain. He is member of the Group of Power Electronics and Microelectronics (GEPM) and member of the Aragon Institute for Engineering Research (I3A) of the University of Zaragoza in Spain.
From 1991 to 1992 he was hardware design engineer in a project for induction heating apparatus for Balay S.A. (now part of BSH Bosch und Siemens Hausgeräte GmbH).
In the period 1994-1996 he was co-founder of Spanner Spanish Engineering Research, company dedicated to design, production and marketing of systems for electronic identification.
He has been involved in design and management responsibilities for R&D projects with companies in the radiofrequency (RF) and EMI/EMC fields for communications, industry and scientific/medical applications since 1990.
Since 1992 he has held a teaching professorship with special interest in Electromagnetic Interference and electromagnetic Compatibility (EMI/EMC) and RF (HF/VHF/UHF) design for Telecom and Electrical Engineers.
His research interest is high efficiency switching mode RF power amplifiers with experience in applications like mobile communication radios, broadcasting (radio and TV), through-earth communication systems (TTE), induction heating, medical equipment, plasmas for industrial applications and RFID.
He was Invited Lecturer for the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Lausanne (Switzerland) and for the Institute National Des Télécommunications (INT) in Evry (France).
He has substantial experience in collaboration with industries with a focus on training and consulting in RF design and EMI/EMC design and troubleshooting. He has taught tens of courses and seminars for industries and institutions in the fields of RF/EMI/EMC in Spain, USA, Switzerland, France, UK, Italy, The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.
He has been involved in approximately 50 R&D projects for companies and/or institutions in the fields of EMI/EMC/RF (in more than 40 projects as Main Researcher). Usually the result was directly used in a marketed product.
Dr. Mediano is author/co-author for many publications and patents as result of activity in research activities listed before. His co-authors are from Spain, USA, Italy, Malaysia, Switzerland, France, UK, Ireland, and Germany.
He has been a speaker in paper sessions and tutorials of some of the most important symposiums and conferences related to RF and EMC (RF EXPO, IEEE IMS, and IEEE Intl. Symp. EMC, URSI, EPE, ARFTG, EUROEM, IEEE RWS, EuMW, EMC Europe, etc).
A. Mediano is one of the Instructors of Besser Associates, one of the world’s more important providers of continuing education for RF/MW professionals and he Industry Advisor of RFTI Magazine.
A. Mediano is a Senior Member of the IEEE, where he has been an active member since 1999 (Chair since Jan 2013) of the MTT-17 (HF/VHF/UHF technology) Technical Committee of the Microwave Theory and Techniques Society He is member of the Electromagnetic Compatibility Society (member of the directive of EMC Spanish Chapter and member of the Education and Student Activities Committee) and member of the Education Society.
Arturo shares free time between his family, fly fishing, and drawing cartoons.
