Principal Engineer – Krzysztof (Krystof) Russa
Krzysztof (Krystof) Russa has two masters degrees in electrical engineering (Lublin, Poland, 1993; University of Akron, 1997). He worked in academia before he began his hardware design career at two major automotive electronics suppliers. His early work transitioned from electronic circuit design to a focus on developing state of the art analytical solutions to optimize the design of electronic hardware. Initially, those methods were applied to analog and mixed signal circuits in order to tackle design uncertainties with Worst-Case circuit analysis. Over the last decade as electronics technology has advanced in the area of high-speed platforms and feature rich user content he has developed extensive expertise in design, analysis and test methods to meet industry needs.
His high speed design and simulation experience covers the majority of modern high-speed interface domains (i.e., memory, displays, serial, etc..). In addition to addressing signal integrity challenges, he has created a series of effective methods to prevent & resolve power integrity issues. His expertise and reputation for balanced use of simulation and measurement techniques led to a prior role as Global Technical Lead in Signal Integrity and Timing Analysis. In this capacity he developed a global team and worked closely with team members from around the world (i.e. US, France, Germany, Bulgaria, India, China and Japan). This work required close cooperation with EMC teams, which resulted in the evolution of a high-speed design & analysis approach to simultaneously optimize both functional and EMC requirements.
Krystof is a co-inventor of a US patent, co-author of two grants and he has a series of IEEE publications in the area of controls and electronics. As recognition for his successful product designs, Mentor Graphics awarded him the PCB Technology Leadership Award in the Transportation and Automotive industries for exceptional high-speed design & analysis on products developed in 2011, 2012 and 2014.
Lead EMC Engineer – Aaron Lutz
Aaron Lutz is an electrical engineer from Michigan. He attended Grand Valley State University and obtained his BSEE in 2006. Aaron has spent his entire career in the field of Electromagnetic Compatibility with over 10 years of test and design experience. Aaron excels at root cause analysis and developing countermeasures for EMC issues.
Aaron began his career as an EMC technician mastering the use of EMI equipment. He worked his way into a design role and learned to focus on schematic and layout reviews to identify and prevent risks to EMC performance. Aaron has developed a number of methods to efficiently pinpoint the cause of EMC failures and has the experience to develop effective solutions.
Aaron has attended and presented at multiple IEEE EMC symposia. He also co-authored an IEEE paper that was published through the symposium record. Aaron has experience using EMC simulation tools such as Hyperlynx and CST. He has experience with various EMC test software including ETS-Lindgen’s TILE!, Nexio’s BAT-EMC, and Rohde & Schwarz’s EMC32. He has also developed custom troubleshooting tools with National Instruments LabVIEW.

EMC Engineer – Dan Traynor
Dan brings 34 plus years of experience to E3 Compliance, in the field of EMC. His interest in electronics began during a 4 year enlistment in the United States Air Force, as an Electronic Counter Measures (ECM) Technician. After an honorable discharge from the service, he began his civilian career with Chrysler Corporation as an RF Technician in 1987.
Beginning in 1991, as a Supervisor of the Component EMC lab at Chrysler Corporation, Dan managed the day to day operations of testing components corporate-wide. After his promotion in 1994 to Electrical Engineer, he worked as a Lab Supervisor, and ensured the quality of all emission and immunity data from EMC department test stands. Subsequently, Dan spent six years as an EMC Vehicle Validation Engineer, overseeing the EMC compliance of midsize and large car segments. The last 14 years of his career Dan held the position of Vehicle Lab Supervisor, where he managed the Vehicle EMC Lab; assigning technicians, mechanics and scheduling all vehicles for both external and internal customers.
