Speed Meets Accuracy in a New EM Scanning Technique

For designers of integrated circuits and circuit boards, electromagnetic emissions are a critical concern. Designers need to ensure the final products comply with international standards for controlling radiated emissions. They must also ensure that a product does not cause self-interference or interference with other devices when part of a larger system. If electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) problems are not detected and fixed early in the design process, the consequences can include production delays, missed time-to-market goals and higher costs.

40 and 70 GHz Test Boards Verify VNA Cals

Signal Microwave and GigaProbes have developed a line of 40 and 70 GHz test boards for verifying VNA calibration (cal) and checking for measurement drift. To check a cal, many operators use only a low loss through adapter; however, this only verifies that the system noise was removed. A “golden unit” with a known response over frequency should be used to verify that the cal was successful.

Electromagnetic Exposure Simulation Software

The new version of EMF Visual is even more powerful thanks to advanced features. It now uses GPU resources, which provide coverage of larger areas for exposure evaluation and enables the use of the Geographical Information System (GIS) database or 3D objects conversion for direct loading of virtual 3D scenes, while interfacing with SketchUp software. In addition, the new version allows users to assign material properties to the entire surrounding 3D environment in order to take into account their impact on exposure levels, while still making fast calculations.
