Harry G. Skinner is an Intel Fellow and director of RF Platform Technologies in Intel Labs. He leads Intel’s research into radio frequency interference and radio frequency resiliency, front-end solutions, and antenna systems. He joined Intel in 1996 as a hardware engineer in the Mobile Handheld Products Group responsible for ensuring product compliance to worldwide electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) regulations. He guided early EMC research for Intel’s product line while driving industry EMC guideline development for initiatives such as peripheral component interconnect express and serial advanced technology attachment. He directed noteworthy projects including dithered clocks for IA platforms (SSC), ingredient definition of platform clocking solutions, and electromagnetic interference design for Intel’s mobile modules. Most recently, he led a multidisciplinary team on emerging challenges and solutions for radio frequency systems. Earlier in his career, Skinner designed and tested personal computer systems in compliance with emerging interference control regulations at IBM. A member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, he has authored numerous technical papers and co-authored a book on electromagnetic theory and intra-system platform interference. He has been granted > 30 patents, with >10 additional patents pending. He holds a bachelor’s degree in electronics and electrical engineering from Glasgow University, Scotland.
