Calgary, Canada – August 11, 2011: EMxpert 4.3 software release due on September 7 integrates third-party handheld magnetic near-field probe and far-field antenna to further assist PCB engineers in quickly meeting their EMC/EMI target levels. The EMxpert is a compact EMC and EMI diagnostic tool enabling designers to rapidly diagnose and solve EMC/EMI problems in a single design cycle in their own lab environment. The core of the EMxpert is a patented antenna array of 2,436 loops forming 1,218 (42 x 29) H-field probes.
A handheld probe can help pinpoint for example the source of emission down to a pin of any board component rapidly identified by the EMxpert scanner. With a far-field antenna, the EMxpert can determine if far-field emissions are background noise, coming from the DUT or from the cables.
Another key feature of 4.3 is the substantial increase in the EMxpert scanner sensitivity, by a considerable 15 dB. The EMxpert is capable of testing board level emission in less than a second; in this new mode it is now able to detect and display very low signal, down to -115 dBm when operating with some specific high performance spectrum analyzer.
Customer-driven improvements have also been incorporated in this new release.
All EMxpert customers under warranty will receive 4.3 automatically; upgrade programs are also available on-demand.
